AIM walleye tournament, benefits local economy

BAY CITY-When walleye anglers start arriving in town, the local economy benefits. Actual tournament dates are May 20-22 with blast off and weigh-in's at Veteran's Memorial Park.
It's nice this event is being held so close to the Metro area. It's a short drive there to see many of the people that are featured on TV shows and in magazine stories talking about events just like this one.
You can easily be a part of it by heading to Bay City's Veterans Park where the annual Bayfest activities take place. Whether it be tall ship sailing or viewing, talking fishing tactics, or grabbing a bite on the run, make Bay City a stop for at least a day and experience the flavor of a fishing tournament.
While you are there, go into town proper and buy a bucket of fresh, homemade peanut butter from St. Laurent Brother's Nut House, 1101 N. Water St.
Check out the many choices for dining and antique shops to look for that special item.
