CLEAR LAKE, Iowa - The coronavirus pandemic might be leaving your wallet feeling a little empty, but there's an easy way to earn some extra cash.
The 31st Annual Clear Lake Walleye Classic was scheduled for May 16-17, but had to be canceled due to COVID-19. In the meantime, there are 30 freshly tagged walleyes swimming through the lake waiting to be caught.
Three are worth $1,000, two more are worth $250, and 25 fish are worth $100 each.
There are two ways to claim your prize money:
- Take the tagged fish to Clear Lake Bait & Tackle.
- Take a picture of the tagged fish, remove the tag from its dorsal fin and take it to the shop.
The Fall Classic is still on as scheduled.
