RCL LEAGUE SUPER TOURNAMENT SET FOR LEECH LAKE
WALKER, Minn. (July 19, 2004) – The Wal-Mart RCL Walleye League Minnesota
Division will wrap up its regular season July 24-25 with a Super Tournament
presented by Evinrude on Leech Lake. The tournament is the third and final
regular-season event en route to the $100,000 Wal-Mart RCL Walleye League
Finals, set for Sept. 2-4 on Bays de Noc in Escanaba, Mich.
The Leech Lake event marks the season’s only two-day
event and also features a larger purse. The tournament will award as much
as $34,945 to as many as 200 boaters and co-anglers, up from the $25,955
payout at one-day RCL League events. The winning boater can earn as much
as $5,250, including $4,500 for the win plus a $750 bonus if he is a registered
owner of a Ranger, Crestliner or Lund boat. The winning co-angler can earn
as much as $2,625, including a winning prize of $2,250 plus a Ranger, Crestliner
or Lund bonus worth $375 if contingency guidelines are met. Payouts are
based on a full field of 100 boaters and 100 co-anglers.
Anglers will take off from Larson Motor Service
in Walker at 7 a.m. both days. Daily weigh-ins will also be held there
at 3 p.m. The community is encouraged to attend daily takeoffs and weigh-ins.
In RCL League competition, boaters and co-anglers
are randomly paired for the event and fish for a combined boat weight.
Boaters compete against other boaters, and co-anglers compete against other
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 RCL Walleye League Finals, and 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
