Founded in 1969, Walleyes Unlimited USA is now recognized as the top multi-species fishing club in the country. In May of 2007 Walleyes Unlimited USA was honored to be inducted into "The Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame." 

The majority of our members are residents of northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. Our club attracts a wide variety of anglers and skill levels. By sharing information, Walleyes Unlimited members learn the latest techniques and methods for a variety of species.

Although our main interest is on walleyes, our membership includes some of the top local anglers for bass, northern pike, muskies, panfish and salmon. Whether you are a novice or hard core fanatic, our meetings and membership can increase your skill and knowledge for most freshwater fish.

Some of our members are outdoor writers for various publications and many of our members speak at fishing seminars in the area and tour the "Walleye Circuits." As a club member you'll enjoy these benefits and more! Over the past years the club has enjoyed & benefited from hundreds of speakers including:
