The Boulder Junction Lions Club will host its fifth annual Walleye Classic on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 3-4, on 14 Boulder Junction area lakes.

The tournament will begin with orientation at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 3, at the Boulder Junction Community Center in the Lions Pavilion. Coffee and donuts will be served and anglers will pick-up their registration materials for Saturday fishing, which is from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Sunday fishing continues from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the day will close with awards, raffle prizes and a fish fry at Headwaters Restaurant and Tavern on Highway M in Boulder Junction. The cost to participate is $100 per two-person team, which includes the fish fry dinner.

This is a catch-and release-tournament. Awards will be given to the teams catching the most total inches of walleye, with first place $300 per team; second place $200 per team; and third place $100 per team. The prizes are based on a minimum of 10 teams. 

Raffle tickets also will be available for prizes awarded at the dinner. The top raffle prize is a Fenwick 7-foot Walleye Elite Rod and Shimano Nasci 2500 Reel Combo ($250 value); second prize is a $100 Northern Highland Sports gift certificate; and third prize are Mepps lures ($50 value).

One hundred percent of the proceeds will support the Boulder Junction Lions Club local programs.
