Anglers Insight Marketing LLC (AIM™) is excited to announce that the Warrior Boats National championship will be held on the ST. Louis River and Lake Superior between Superior, WI and Duluth, MN. The host site, the beautiful Barkers Island Inn located in Superior, WI on Barkers Island.
The 2016 National Championship dates are June 3rd and 4th. Teams qualified thru 3 divisions in the 2015 Weekend Walleye Series to earn their ticket to the no entry fee event to compete for the grand prize, a Warrior 1898 DC with a Yamaha 150 4stroke outboard valued at $50,000.00. Anglers will travel from Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota and Canada to compete.
AWWS National Tournament Director Denny Fox commented, “The St. Louis River has been a hot bed of walleye activity for quite some time and we thought it was a perfect venue for this group of anglers. Jigging, Rigging, hand lining, contour trolling and open water trolling will all come into play at this diversified fishery. Watch for more information as the winter months pass, this is sure to be a barn burner.”
AIM™ has held the Weekend Walleye Series events across the country since 2014. The events feature exciting, 1 day, team-style competition with low entry fees, lucrative payouts, and fair competition for all contestants.
All AIM events showcase AIM’s revolutionary Catch-Record-Release™ (CRR) tournament format where anglers measure, photograph, and immediately release all walleyes caught. Since no fish are kept, there is minimal impact to fish resources. This unique and exciting tournament format allows AIM™ to hold highly competitive events on waters with restrictive slots or other regulations that make these waters less attractive to tournament anglers.
Anglers Insight Marketing LLC (AIM™) is a unique tournament organization created and owned by many of the most accomplished and recognizable professional walleye anglers, along with others who share the mission of advancing competitive walleye fishing and making it sustainable into the future. AIM is committed to marketing excellence on behalf of its tournament competitors, the tournament host communities, and the brands that partner with it. AIM is also committed to maintaining healthy fisheries across the nation by the development of the exclusive AIM Catch-Record-Release™ format which is integral to its dynamic events and unparalleled consumer engagement.
