The Cabela’s National Walleye Tour recently launched a website with more details on the circuit, including rules, tournament structure, payout and incentives. The new site, www.nationalwalleyetour.com, features easy navigation, detailed event listings and a user-friendly design that also allows for secure, online tournament registration for the 2013 season.
Registration is officially underway now, with priority entry given to anglers signing up for all three regular season events. Single event entries will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.
The all-new Cabela’s National Walleye Tour features a Pro-Am style format and is set to kick off its inaugural season in April when the Tour visits Red Wing, Minn., and the Mississippi River. The 2013 schedule includes a total of three regular season events, plus a year-end Championship.
Each 2013 NWT event features over 100 percent payback. A fully rigged Ranger Boat, plus $15,000 cash, is guaranteed for first place at each event – a total value of $57,000. Anglers that fish all three regular season events, in addition to the top points leaders, will gain invitation to the three-day, entry-fee Championship.
In addition to the strong payout, the Cabela’s National Walleye Tour offers several contingency opportunities for anglers. The circuit is pre-approved with multiple bonus programs available to Ranger, Stratos and Triton boat owners as well as Evinrude and Mercury outboard owners. Cabela’s will also offer their lucrative Angler Cash incentives at each event. Overall payout, once the contingency programs are included, increase the potential first place prize value to nearly $75,000 at each qualifying event.
The new circuit also includes unprecedented television and media coverage, allowing a national audience to watch the action unfold from each event throughout the season. Airing on multiple networks, the National Walleye Tour will be seen on The Texas Channel, World Fishing Network, Pursuit Channel, as well as the new NBC Sports Network.
For more details, anglers are encouraged to call 612-424-0708 or check out the new website at www.nationalwalleyetour.com.
