WAL-MART RCL WALLEYE LEAGUE TO VISIT LAKE OAHE
MOBRIDGE, S.D. (April 30, 2004) – The Wal-Mart RCL Walleye League South
Dakota Division will stage its first event of the 2004 season May 8 on
Lake Oahe near Mobridge. The tournament is expected to draw as many as
200 weekend walleye anglers to the Mobridge area, with as many as 100 Boater
Division competitors casting for a top award of as much as $4,000 and as
many as 100 co-anglers in the hunt for as much as $2,000.
Anglers will take off from Indian Memorial Ramp
in Mobridge at 7 a.m. Weigh-in will also be held there beginning at 3 p.m.
The community is encouraged to attend the takeoff and weigh-in.
Boaters and co-anglers are randomly paired for the
event and fish for a combined boat weight. Cash payouts are based on a
full field of 100 boaters and 100 co-anglers. Boaters compete against other
boaters, and co-anglers compete against other co-anglers.
The winning boater will earn as much as $3,500 cash
for the win, and if he is a registered owner of a Ranger, Crestliner or
Lund boat that he fished from during the event, he is eligible for a $500
RCL bonus for a top award of $4,000 cash. If the winning boater uses only
Garmin electronics with at least one unit being a qualifying unit, he will
receive a $1,000 bonus from Garmin. The winning co-angler will earn as
much as $1,750 and if he is a registered Ranger, Crestliner or Lund owner,
he will receive a $250 bonus for a top award of $2,000.
Four RCL Walleye League divisions – Michigan, Minnesota,
South Dakota and Wisconsin –each feature two one-day events and one two-day
Super Tournament during the regular season. Every angler who receives weight
credit earns points, with 200 points awarded to the winner, 199 for second,
198 for third, and so on, except for Super Tournaments, which award 300
points to the winner, 299 for second, 298 for third, and so on. These points
determine angler standings.
The top 25 boaters and 25 co-anglers from each RCL
League division advance to the $100,000 Wal-Mart RCL Walleye League Finals,
set for Sept. 2-4 on Bays de Noc in Escanaba, Mich. The top five boaters
and five co-anglers from each division qualify for the $1.4 million Wal-Mart
RCL Walleye Championship if they are a Ranger, Crestliner or Lund owner.
The South Dakota Division’s second stop will be
held on Big Stone Lake June 12, followed by the Super Tournament presented
by Evinrude July 17-18 on Lake Oahe.
