The excitement for this Montana Walleye Governor’s Cup is building. The two day fishing tourney is less than two weeks away, which takes place Friday-Saturday July 12-13 based out of Fort Peck Dam. There is still time for you to sign up. They already have close to 100 teams competing and are expecting between 125-135 teams at this years event.
Todd Young, the Governor’s Cup Co-Director says the fishing has been exceptional within the tournament boundaries on the lake and he is expecting some impressive weights this year.
Young (pictured above with a nice walleye) went out and caught 10 fish in just a few hours between 16 and 20 inches pulling lindy rigs with leeches and crawlers. They were fishing in the mid-lake region north of the Pines area on Saturday.
