Can you have a walleye tournament in September?

Brent Frazee asks this $109,000 question in this story picked up by the San Jose Mercury News.

Milford Lake will host this year’s Professional Walleye Trail Mercury Marine Championship September 16-18. Congratulations to Geary County for landing this tournament and showing off Kansas!

However, some people are anticipating a rough go:

“I can tell this is going to be a tough tournament,” said Good, 50, who lives in Brainerd, Minn. “The locals all say this is the worst time of the year for walleye fishing.

“Part of it has to do with there being so much food in the water right now - all the young-of-the-year fish. And then, this is a transition time. The fish are moving from the deeper water to shallower water.

That sounds difficult. Still, there’s a reason why these guys are professionals: they catch fish when people like me can’t. Besides, it can’t possibly be as bad as the infamous Pittsburgh Bass Tournmanent.
