As the global COVID-19 pandemic continues, the measures put in place to limit its spread continue as well.
After discussion and careful consideration, the tbaytel Dryden Walleye Masters committee has decided that this year’s event will not go ahead as we will be unable to put on the quality of tournament that we are known for. With border closures and travel restrictions continuing for the foreseeable future, the ability for anglers who have participated for many years would be severely restricted as well.
All teams currently registered will have their position and entry fees held for next year’s tournament. Same as last year when the decision to cancel was made. Any teams who wish to cancel their entries, and lose their position for next year’s tournament, can contact the committee by email or on Facebook. We understand your decision, should you choose to do so.
Please do your part to keep everyone safe, so we can see you at next year’s event – June 18-19, 2022!
COVID-19 has changed everything this year. Unprecedented measures have been put in place to limit its spread, including Ontario’s Premier encouraging the cancellation of all fishing tournaments within the province this year.
Following this guidance, the tbaytel Dryden Walleye Masters committee has decided that this year’s event will not go ahead.
We are extremely grateful to the sponsors who have already shown their support – as well as over 80 teams who pre-registered prior to this decision.
All teams currently registered will have their position and entry fees held for next year’s tournament. Any teams who wish to cancel their entries, and lose their position for next year’s tournament, can contact the committee by email or on Facebook.
Please stay home and stay safe, so we can see you at next year’s event – June 19-20, 2021!
Lloyd Gillis and Angie Fryklund didn’t just have a great FIRST day on the water – they followed it up with an almost equally great SECOND day too! 18.99lbs on day one, and 18.30lbs on day two, catapulted them to a whopping 37.29lbs for the weekend! That was over three pounds ahead of past tournament champions, and the 2018 runners-up, Jack Hawkins and Jared Ternowski.
They may have missed the title, but they DID manage to edge out Kevin and Doug Caul for the big fish of the day, and the tournament, at 10.75lbs!
Congratulations to all of this weekend’s anglers! Your complete final results can be viewed or downloaded at the link below. We can’t wait to see you all again next year! The registration form is available to download at the link below as well.
Invasive species aren’t just a nuisance – they can destroy our vital fish habitat, even threaten our fish populations. Help keep our lakes thriving by making sure your boat doesn’t become a taxi for invasive plant and animal species.
Please read the PDF notice below about how you can prevent the spread of invasive species, and be aware about an invasive species already in the Wabigoon chain of lakes.
