Brimley, MI – Angling Insights Marketing (AIM) has announced that Bay Mills Resort & Casinos will host a special invitational tournament in the 2012 AIM Pro Walleye Series schedule.

Bay Mills Resort & Casinos is located in Brimley, Michigan on the shores of Lake Superior. From the resort’s boat launch anglers have access to Lake Superior, the Saint Mary’s River system and the area downstream from the international locks at Sault Ste. Marie, which includes Lake Huron and Lake Michigan. For the past two years Bay Mills Resort & Casinos has successfully hosted a special invitational tournament for the top AIM Pro Anglers from the previous season and is now ready to host an international tournament.

In 2012, Bay Mills will introduce a new tournament format – a special invitational tournament that will be open to 30 Pro Anglers from the United States and 30 Pro Anglers from Canada. “This is a great opportunity to showcase the area fishery which literally forms the border between the U.S. and Canada,” says Rod Jones, general manager of Bay Mills Casinos. “Our past experience with the AIM Catch-Record-Release or C-R-R format demonstrates that we can highlight the great fishing the area has to offer with zero impact on the local resources.” 

The Bay Mills Can-Am Invitational will be held May 31 to June 2. Three unique features will be incorporated into the tournament. First, each of the 60 Pro Anglers will receive $300 from Bay Mills Resort & Casinos at registration – before the tournament even begins – totaling $18,000. Second, the Can-AM Pro Anglers will compete for Team Bonuses.  Each Pro Angler will be competing as a member of an American or Canadian Team with each Pro’s C-R-R weight being added to their respective team’s weight.  The Team with the highest total C-R-R weight will each receive a $250 bonus - that is another $7,500. Third, because of Bay Mills Resort & Casinos’ sponsorship, the complete cash prize and bonus payouts will exceed 150 percent of the Pro Angler entry fees.  

Entries in the Bay Mills Can-Am Invitational will be accepted in early 2012. Pro Anglers, and Co-angler partners wishing to participate are encouraged to reserve these dates now.
