There’s nothing fishy about any of it. The purpose of the Walleye War would be to have just a little fun also to highlight both lakes which are popular destinations for anglers.
Henry says ice fishing is area of the regional culture, and he and Cherney intend to have a great time showcasing the activity and the lakes.
The Facebook fish-off should all be fun and games … until someone loses a walleye.
