Sauger tournaments iced out
NT Staff




Illinois Walleye Trail chief Adam Sandor posted the following online letter to sauger anglers on Valentine's Day weekend, which is all about sauger fishing for some folks -- but not this year:

The Illinois River at this time is still frozen over. Despite the warmer temps and thaw that will occur over the next week the river will not be in shape to have our events next weekend.

The JJ's Pub tournament will be rescheduled for 3/9/2014 and not be rescheduled. This event is optional and is just to for fun!

IWT-3rd Qualifier in Ottawa, Il. has been rescheduled for... 3/22/14 and the IWT 4th Qualifier will be the following day on 3/23 in Spring Valley, Il..

Safety is always our number one priority and ice flow and flooding is major concern for us in the weeks to come. The threat of a significant flood due to runoff and rain will take the next few weeks out of play.

So, economically and logistically I feel that having the events back to back makes the most sense for the angler. Considering most of you will be competing in the MWC the following week.

We are very sorry for any inconveniences that this postponement may have caused. Let's hope for some good weather in the month to come and we hope to see you all on the water in March.

Also these events will be Cabela's National Team Championship-Qualifying events.
