(Arnolds Park)-Walleye Weekend is about to get underway, KUOO's Becky Thoreson has details:

Registration Deadline for 39th Annual Walleye Weekend is April 30th at 11:59 pm 

The 39th Annual Walleye Weekend officially begins at 12:01 am on Saturday, May 1st and concludes at noon on Sunday, May 2.

Kiley Zankowski, Director of Membership and Events with the Iowa Great Lakes Area Chamber says, registration will close at midnight on Friday.  "Registration for all of the contests, the weekend and the extended contest that goes all summer long, ends at 11:59 pm on Friday.  After that date, you cannot sign up anymore.  If you catch that tagged fish, there's no way you can get back in so, make sure you get signed up.  You can stop into the local bait shops, or you can also stop in at The Chamber in person, or if you want to do it from the comfort of your home or from afar, you can register online at okobojichamber.com"

She notes that there are other prizes in addition to the Grand Prize.  "Of course, that $39,000 Grand Prize is the one that everyone's after, but there's other categories.  Walleye Weekend isn't just about Walleye.  We've got different heaviest fish categories, so if you're catching other fish out there, bring them on in.  There's over $3,500 worth of prizes.  You get a trophy, you get a rod and reel."

Walleye Weekend wraps up with a Luncheon at noon on Sunday at the Dickinson County Expo Center.
