About 200 anglers will be out on Wabigoon Lake this weekend for the return of TbayTel’s Dryden Walleye Masters.
100 teams are registered for the annual fishing tournament with weigh-ins taking place at the Dryden Memorial Arena throughout June 17 and 18.
Flight times for the tournament are as follows:
- Flight One – 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
- Flight Two – 7:15 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.
- Flight Three – 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This year is the 32nd annual Walleye Masters in Dryden after they hit their 30th anniversary in 2019 – but 2020 and 2021 events were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Team #59 of Scott Abraham and Frank Lombardo took last year’s top spot with a total of 34.46 lbs, walking away with $10,000 and a $20,000 AlumaCraft/Mercury boat package. The pair also caught the big fish of the weekend on Day 1 at 11.38 lbs.
The team of Jeff and Blair Dingwall won the event in 2019.
