Michigan Walleye Tour, 2000 Inland Waterway Championship Pg. 3
   Saturday started out wet and windy when at 7am the boats headed out across Burt Lake into an ominous horizon. By 7:30 a storm front rolled over the hills to the west and into the lake valley with heavy rain and lighting. By 7:35 the boats were back in the Indian River channel waiting for a break. One team had not reported in and with the weather showing no sign of improvement the tournament day was called to an end at 10:30. The lost team was quickly found fishing despite the minor disturbance.

   Sunday was a new and different day all together. With the three day tournament now a two day event anyone had a chance to pull of a victory. After the start I motored Mike Zielinski, editor for Michigan Fishing & Hunting News, through the Crooked River and a part of the Inland waterway he hasn't experienced. Stopping at the swing bridge in Alanson we walk up town for breakfast before finishing our tour through the locks into Crooked lake.

   At three o'clock we were back on the dock at the Indian River Marina, who were kind enough to host the event, waiting for the boats to come in the river and show their hand.
   The Saginaw Bay Walleye Club is a family oriented club with many father son teams. To the right a future Pro anxiously awaits his fathers return as the crowd grows larger.
