Contingency—the term implies a possibility, a chance. But the truth is, from the earliest walleye tournaments over 30 years ago to today’s progressive contests, the possibility of a Lund angler taking the top check is better described as a “likelihood,” even a near certainty.
That’s because throughout the history of competitive walleye wars, famous Lund boats, such as its flagship Pro-V, have been captained by successful tournament anglers. You know that big chrome “V” that wears its statement on its shiny hull? Victory, man, victory.
Just in time for walleye tournament season, Lund Boats is offering pot-sweetening bonus checks to the highest placing Lund anglers on both the Cabela’s National Walleye Tour (NWT) and AIM Pro Walleye circuits – the “contingency” is that top finishers must run a Lund Boat.*
At each of four NWT events, as well as the AIM contest in Oconto, Wis., Lund will write a cool $1,000 check to the highest placing Lund angler. Additionally, the second highest placing Lund finisher will win an extra $750. And the third placing Lund-runner will walk away with $500. Not bad for simply selecting the boat with the richest winning tradition in walleye tournament history.
“Lund has been supporting grassroots and nationally renowned tournaments across North America for decades,” says Lund Boats Special Events & Pro-Staff Coordinator, Ryan Sproule. “We’ve long recognized the value and importance of offering rewards to our loyal customers and tournament anglers—and that goes beyond just building them the most fishable boat in the industry. Lund Boats’ contingency rewards reflect our Company’s history of supporting our anglers, as well as our commitment and connection to the tournament community.”
Defining the prototypical tournament angler from day one, Lund continues to be the trusted choice of the sport’s most famous players. From Lund Legends like Mr. Walleye Gary Roach, the Glorvigen brothers and Al Lindner, to younger “Lund Guns,” such as bass fishing sensation Jeff ‘Gussy’ Gustafson, the Minnesota-based boat builder has kept Lund anglers outfitted with the finest in features, value and fishability for over 65 years. To commemorate its legendary tournament heritage, Lund has re-released its full fleet of four Pro-Vs—from the sporty 1775 to the 2075 dream machine. Game-winning boat-control, included …
Adds perennial walleye winner Ted Takasaki: “To put it simply, Lund Boats are built tournament tough. Talk about handling severe conditions! Whether riding out 8-foot Lake Erie back-breakers or icy Dakota rip-curls, Lund Boats are comfortable, safe and rock solid. After all these years, Lund still gives me the smoothest ride, the best boat control and the most features on any boat you’ll find on any tournament trail in North America.”
