FLW Walleye Tour making stop in South Dakota

PIERRE, S.D. — Some of the world's best walleye anglers are battling it out on Lake Oahe in South Dakota.

The National Guard FLW Walleye Tour event is being sponsored by Pierre's Chamber of Commerce Thursday through Saturday. Top prizes total $63,000 in the pro division and $10,500 in the amateur division.

Pro Ted Takasaki of Sioux Falls says the lake is “full of hungry, biting fish” but they seem skinnier this year. He says anglers won't have any problem catching their limits, and the tournament will come down to who lands the bigger, fatter walleye.

Final weigh-in is at 4 p.m. Saturday at the Pierre Walmart.
