'IOWA’S WALLEYE CHALLENGE: FISH ANYWHERE IN IOWA' is officially live, and many are excited to start fishing. This event still has over 30 days to go at the time of writing this and offers a great experience for those proud fishermen of Iowa.

What makes this so great for everyone is that this event is part of a state-wide research project to get a better sense of the walleye fishery across the state of Iowa. That and the prizes!
