Devils Lake Walleye Tournament

Event

The 40th annual Devils Lake Chamber Walleye Tournament, with a total of $60,000 in prizes, is slated for June 24-25. The event attracts two-person teams from across the Midwest, all vying for the $5,000 guaranteed first place cash prize.

The weigh-in ceremonies, hosted by tournament director, guide and world champion walleye angler Johnnie Candle, will be streamed live from Graham’s Island State Park. All team members will receive a Cabela’s jacket, and will be eligible for daily big fish prizes.

The largest walleye each day is worth $500; the largest pike daily pays $250. The day-two northern pike shootout is an optional tournament for those out of contention after the first day.
