Turns out it was part of the "Great Walleye Weekend."

It was one of six walleye that were tagged by the Iowa DNR in early May and released into Big Spirit Lake, West Okoboji and East Okoboji.

Larson caught his fish last Thursday.

The Iowa Great Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce announced the details on Tuesday.

For anglers who paid $15 and registered for the extended contest, there's still a chance to win some money for catching one of the tagged fish up until September first.

It's a fundraiser for the Easter Seals of Iowa.
