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.
Jeff and Blair Dingwall had to wait until the very end to weigh in, but they made it worth the wait! After landing in 1st place at the end of day one, the father-son duo added over 15 pounds to their weight to launch themselves back to the top with a final weight of 32.88lbs.
Jack Hawkins and Jared Ternowski had the hot seat for a good bit of the boat parade.But after the weights came in, they handed over the crown to Jeff and Blair Dingwall.
And they hoisted the trophy! The big fish of the tournament came in Sunday morning, 12.06lbs to Stephen and Curtis Viherjoki. It was a BEAUTY!
We’ve teamed up with HTTV again this year to bring you the 2018 tbaytel Dryden Walleye Masters weigh-ins live, online! You don’t have to be near a TV this year – you can even watch it on your phone while you’re on the go! It’s a great way to feel like you’re there, even if you can’t be.
