Overcast skies and drizzly weather hardly kept fishermen from setting up at the Elizabeth Park Marina Friday to kick off the weekend’s Cabela’s Masters Walleye Circuit team tournament. Teams hit the Detroit River and Lake Erie beginning at 7 a.m. with three daily 3 p.m. weigh-ins. Friday afternoon’s weigh-in was followed by an event for young fishermen, the Future Anglers contest. More than 120 two-person teams had signed up in advance to compete for a top prize of more than $62,000.
