FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RCL Walleye Circuit Calls Off La Crosse Visit
La Crosse, Wis., (July 11, 2001) - The $2.9 million Wal-Mart RCL Walleye
Circuit will not make its planned stop on the Mississippi River near
Crosse, Wis., this year after Operation Walleye determined that a
catch-and-release tournament was not a viable option.
The decision to cancel the July 25-28 tournament was made Tuesday evening
based on high summer temperatures and low water conditions in the region.
Originally scheduled for May 9-12-when hot weather would not have been
factor-the tournament was postponed until July after the U.S. Coast
closed the Upper Mississippi River to boat traffic due to high water.
"Like everybody else, the last thing we want to cause is damage to the
or to the resource," said Charlie Evans, chief operating officer for
Operation Walleye. "In order to have a thriving sport, you need to
the resource, and that is what we are doing."
Moving the La Crosse RCL Walleye Circuit tournament to September, when
temperature would not be a factor, was not an option as it would be
impossible to squeeze the event between a Sept. 5-8 tournament in Devils
Lake, N.D., and the championship in October.
The Devils Lake tournament will feature a cash purse of $390,750 as
final qualifier for the 2001 Wal-Mart RCL Walleye Championship, which
features a cash purse of $1.4 million and a top award of up to $400,000.
championship will be held Oct. 2-6 in Green Bay, Wis.
"While we are sure that there will be some disappointed tournament
participants, we feel that calling off the La Crosse tournament was
decision for both our competitors and for local anglers," Evans said.
community relations is a key element of the sport, and we are certain
professional walleye anglers understand that our decision was made
their best interest in mind."

Entry fees for regular season tournaments are $1,250 for pros and $500
