Competitive walleye anglers will converge at Green Bay, Wisconsin, July 24-25 for the final regular-season event of the 2015 Cabela's National Walleye Tour. The tournament circuit features a pro-am style format and guarantees over 100% payback.
The Green Bay event begins Thursday, July 23, with tournament registration from 2-4 p.m. at Cabela's Retail Store (1499 Lombardi Ave., Ashwaubenon, WI 54304) with a mandatory pre-tournament meeting set to start at 5:00 p.m. Pro and co-angler pairings will be announced at the pre-tournament meeting.

The National Professional Anglers Association (NPAA) will also host a "Future Angler" program for children after Saturday's weigh-in, at approximately 5:30 p.m., featuring an educational seminar and training for youth from top-notch NPAA members. The youth-orientated event will include a free rod/reel combo or "Future Pro" t-shirt for the first 100 children who attend the educational program.
