FOND DU LAC, Wis. (WFRV) - Fond du Lac's largest family festival is hitting the water this weekend as anglers try their hand at a little catch and release.

Walleye Weekend has returned to Lakeside Park in Fond du Lac.

The event includes a sport fishing competition, games, children's entertainment and even some live bands.

280 teams of fishermen cast a line into Lake Winnebago early Saturday morning to catch five to six walleyes.

It's all free to get in and the money spent inside helps the community.

Walleye weekend continues through Sunday.
