I am pleased to welcome back Yaleye-Fish Lures to my 2017 Sunset Bay Walleye Shootout.
Yaleye-Fish Lures is a custom painted lure from a company that has some of the most effective walleye lure patterns available for our Great Lakes walleye fishery. You can check them out at or at your fine local retailers such as Colville Outfitters (Hamburg, NY) or Innovative Outdoors online at Both retailers will have these lures available at the upcoming WNY Sport & Travel Expo, March 9-12, 2017.

I am very excited to announce that Chris Yalowica (President/Owner) of Yaleye-Fish Lures is offering an additional BONUS of $500.00 Cash for the largest walleye caught within the Main Event. We are extremely appreciative of Chris, his generosity and his contribution to our walleye fishery.

   ​Please visit and fish his lures often.

​ Stay tuned for more exciting announcements and tournament news!

Tight lines, and I look forward to seeing everyone soon.
