The Walleyes for Tomorrow banquet this year will be held at the Whitetail Inn in St. Germain on Thursday, June 14. The banquet opens at 5:30 p.m. with dinner at 7 p.m.
Walleyes for Tomorrow is "a project-oriented organization with the goal of increasing the population of walleye in waters where projects are undertaken," according to the group. There are 15 chapters of the organization across the state and in the U.P., the first of which started in 1991. Each year, the Headwaters Chapter holds an annual banquet as a fundraiser to help with stocking efforts and habitat restoration in Northwoods lakes. The Headwaters Basin Chapter completes projects every year such as the massive undertaking to restore three areas on Lake Minocqua formerly used as spawning habitat by walleyes. The group has already placed two rock bars into the lake, with one more slated to be placed this summer.
Many prize boards will be available at the banquet, and the group stated there is always something for everyone. Yearly membership, dinner and an entry into the door prize drawing is only $90 per ticket. Tickets can be purchased at Kurt's Island Sports and The Lakeland Times in Minocqua and Townline Sports in Manitowish Waters. All proceeds will directly fund Walleyes for Tomorrow projects in Wisconsin.
