The 2005 Lowrance sponsored Pro Team Walleye Circuit is going to be
bigger and better.
The 2005 season will consist of five qualifying tournaments and a Championship
tournament. Of the five qualifying tournaments there will be two
divisions (two tournaments per division), and one open tournament.
All tournaments will be for three days, with only the top 20 teams with
weight from days one and two competing on the final day. Each tournament
will pay 30 places, with the first place team receiving $30,000 cash. Teams
finish in the top 40 per division with points, and the top 20 placers
from the open tournament, will qualify to fish in the Princecraft Championship.
Championship will pay 60 places with the top team winning $50,000 cash.
Payout per tournament, awards, and championship are based on a full field
of 110 teams per tournament. "Last year we had teams from twelve states
and Canada compete in the new circuit. Next year we will start in April
with the first ever
No Live Bait Pro Walleye tournament sponsored by FoodSource Lures, and
end the year with our championship sponsored by Princecraft Boats in
We are attending 14 boat shows in CO, IA, ID, MN, MT, NE, ND, SD, UT,
