"If you catch one of the 10 specially tagged walleye, you have a chance at $39,000. Sponsorship information is available. Again we have to thank our partners with that, and so far we've already had Arnolds Park, the city of Arnolds Park, sign up as a Walleye level sponsor, and we've got four sponsorship packages: the bluegill, the bass, the northern pike, and then the top tier is the walleye, so."

Andera says you may want to strongly consider signing up for the extended contest when you're registering...Andera & Walleye Weekend02 

"We had three tagged walleye caught in the extended contest last summer, so they're out there, they're available. Unfortunately none of those three anglers were registered, so we weren't able to pay out any of the extended contest money."
