In 2015, the Emo Walleye Classic lost one of its founding committee members, Nevin Bonot. The passion and enthusiasm that Nevin brought to our tournament was a powerful driver, and we honor his efforts through the Nevin Bonot Memorial Award. This award, donated by the Emo Walleye Classic, is awarded to one team randomly selected from those who register prior to the early bird date. This year, that date is Janurary 31, 2017. Nevin was a powerful advocate for the tournament, and for all the teams fishing in the EWC. We remember his tireless efforts by encouraging teams to register today!
