Walleye fishing advocacy group formed

The Bass Federation announced the formation of The Walleye Federation.

"Walleye anglers the world over have always been the same great anglers bass enthusiasts are. They care about the same things: club and angler camaraderie, sharing their passion for the sport with young and new anglers and supporting common-sense conservation issues," said Robert Cartlidge, president of The Bass Federation and The Walleye Federation, in a statement.

"Walleye anglers and their families should have the same opportunities and benefits bass anglers have been able to enjoy for decades," he added. "At the end of the day, we're all fishermen; bass, walleye, or perch, it's the challenge of fishing and the tug on the line that has us all hooked. So we've joined forces with other industry leaders, drafted a plan unlike anything walleye has ever seen and met with walleye clubs across the nation to get feedback."

The Walleye Federation is founded on three core values: youth, conservation and fishing. The federation will work to enhance walleye fishing in America and provide walleye anglers and the industry with the same support, sponsor benefits and unity for youth, conservation and fishing that bass anglers have received for years.
