2020 Tournament Cancelled

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!

Walleye Masters Cancelled

2019 Official Results

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.
