The Mike Yeo Classic presented by Gander Mountain, a Pro-am bass fishing tournament on Lake Minnetonka benefitting the Pinky Swear Foundation and the Angel Foundation, will return to Lake Minnetonka on Tuesday, Sept. 1.

“I’m proud to host this bass fishing tournament for the second year on Lake Minnetonka,” said Minnesota Wild Head Coach Mike Yeo. “As an avid fisherman, this is a great way to show my support for the Pinky Swear Foundation and the Angel Foundation, two fantastic local organizations, while doing something I love. I’m also grateful to have one of the largest outdoor retailers in the State of Hockey sponsoring this event - Gander Mountain.”

Every boat in the tournament will feature a Minnesota Wild coach, player or local celebrity along with a professional

fishing guide and a guest angler. Wild players Ryan Carter, Justin Fontaine, Erik Haula, Zach Parise, Nate Prosser, Jordan Schroeder, Thomas Vanek, Jason Zucker and many more are scheduled to participate. Gander Mountain has assembled a lineup of expert anglers and will provide all necessary fishing gear for a truly unforgettable experience.

Anglers will take off from Lord Fletcher’s Old Lake Lodge located at 3746 Sunset Drive in Spring Park at 8:30 a.m. Each boat will have six hours on the water to lure in the largest bass for the tournament trophy. The weigh-in, along with a silent auction featuring autographed Wild merchandise and exclusive celebrity experiences, will begin at 2 p.m. at Lord Fletcher’s. Due to space limitations, the event is only open to registered tournament participants.
