The Osakis Lions Club is getting set to host the 29th annual Osakis Lions Club Walleye Tournament on Lake Osakis this summer.

The tournament is set for June 20-21 with an $8,000 first-team prize up for grabs. The tournament is a two-person team format with a $350 entry free required per team. A complete and signed entry form must be received by June 19 at midnight. The field is limited to 100 teams, so those interested are encouraged to sign up early.

Everyone who signs up is required to attend the rules meeting and banquet on June 19. Registration starts at 5 p.m. with the meeting and banquet beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Each boat will be permitted six walleyes per day that measure in at 16" or larger. Fishing hours will go from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days of the tournament.

There are plenty of big prizes to be won at the event. Five thousand dollars goes to the second place team and $3,000 to third. There is at least a $1,000 payday for each of the top seven teams. All prizes are awarded on a team basis, except for the largest fish prize. The largest walleye could land a prize of $1,000, based on the number of entries.
