Thank you all for fishing the 43rd annual Mercury National Walleye Tournament



Mercury Marine is pleased to announce the return of the Mercury National walleye tournament in 2021


Mercury Marine is pleased to announce the return of the Mercury National walleye tournament in 2021 after the event’s cancellation in 2020 as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. This year’s event will take place June 12-13, 2021, on Lake Winnebago, with launches and weigh-ins occurring at Oven Island in Fond du Lac’s Lakeside Park.

Because the threat of COVID-19 persists today, Mercury Marine and The Walleye Federation have instituted several revisions to the event’s policies and procedures. These changes aim to align the event with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and the Fond du Lac County Health Department on protocols designed to discourage the spread of COVID-19.

Please see the Revisions to Event Procedures document and the Frequently Asked Questions document for more information on the specific changes to this year’s Mercury National walleye tournament. In short, the changes will focus this year’s event on the mission to conduct a fun, fair, safe, and competitive fishing tournament while upholding the safety of all participants.

Although scheduled to take place concurrently with this year’s Fond du Lac Walleye Weekend festival, the Mercury National walleye tournament will be operated as a separate activity. In the event that Walleye Weekend organizers announce any changes to the festival’s schedule, those announcements will have no bearing on the Mercury National walleye tournament.
