Lots of events — including fishing derbies! — are being cancelled across North America thx to *cough* coronavirus *cough*…. And if they haven’t been cancelled yet, the weigh-ins will probably look something like this:
One tourney that won’t be nixed is the Fishing Fights Cancer global walleye tournament hosted by Uncut Angling that kicks off TOMORROW (Mar 21-31).
Cool thing about walleye derbies (like this ^ one) gettin’ digital is you can fish it from anywhere the walleye season is open — don’t even have to give up your secret lake or spot, or worry about those annoying slot limits.
Get this: Costs just $20 to enter and 100% of the entry fees go to the American Cancer Society (ACS) and Canadian Cancer Society (CCS).
Longest walleye entered wins a Garmin Panoptix LiveScope Ice Bundle. #Dibs
Also be dishing out some serious prizes to the top 3 longest walleyes entered every day of the tourney, including: StrikeMaster Lithium 40v ice augers, Aqua-Vu HD10i underwater camera, SIMMS Challenger Ice Suit, Dakota Lithium batteries, a pile of Target Walleye gear [smirk emoji]…just to name a few.
Don’t worry…the smallest walleye each day wins a prize too LOL!
I’ll be signing up (through the Fish Donkey app) and gunning for that smallest-fish spot! Bummer the walleye season is closed in most of MN, but still some solid border-water options to be had….

Definitely think you’re gonna be seeing more and more online catch-record-release derbies like this going forward — options are endless….
