Walleye Tournaments

Every time you read the newspaper there has been controversy on border walleye fishing. This war between our neighbors to the south and ourselves has been a topic for the past few years but nothing has been done to stop the walleye tournaments.
Now to add more pressure to the fish under security they have back to back walleye tournaments on the Rainy River.
I have been against walleye tournamenst back when almost one hundred percent of the fish didn’t survive on Rainy Lake.
I have fought this issue to my utmost ability and refused participating in the tournaments myself, but referring to the old cliché “If you cannot beat them, join them.” I may do that.
