The 12th-annual Rainy River Walleye Tournament held last weekend was a huge success once again, with several Devlin anglers competing.
Ralph Galusha and Bill Godin were crowned as the “River Champs” for having the highest combined weight from both the Emo Walleye Classic and the RRWT.
They received $1,200, plus a trophy, for this award.

Robin’s 2¢:
Wine does not make you fat.
Rather, it makes you lean . . . against tables, chairs, floors, walls, and ugly people.
