It’s nearly impossible to find a community like Oconto, WI that’s so fishing driven and located on one of the best walleye fisheries in the country. AIM successfully did that in 2012, unveiling their Pro-Team Challenge Format for the first time. In a repeat performance, the AIM Pro Walleye Series will reinvade the phenomenal waters of Green Bay, out of Oconto, on July 18-20, 2013. Anglers can fish both Wisconsin and Michigan waters with no slot limits as no fish are transported.
With such a successful 2012 campaign, it was a simple decision to hold another event with the same angler format (now called Pro Partner Draw). This format is attractive to anglers that are used to fishing Pro/AM, or Team events, as well as giving the Co-Angler fisherman the most bang for his/her buck! With a population 4,700, the hidden gem of Oconto, a small community set off the western shore of Green Bay, gives anglers a perfect “logistical” location to explore the bay’s vast waters, in search of trophy size walleyes that can be caught using almost every technique in the book!
Dick Doeren, tournament director and Oconto City Councilman echoed the excitement of this announcement. “We are most honored that AIM has chosen Oconto to hold its only premier Walleye Tournament in this season. We will roll out the Red Carpet to make this event one to remember, to all those who attend, be it Pro’s, Co Anglers or spectators to enjoy our “Glad You Are Here Down Home Attitude.” In fact, the Oconto & Wisconsin Department of Tourism has Awarded AIM the only Travel Green Wisconsin Award to a Fishing Tournament because of its Catch Record & Release Format!” Read More
