  • Back to Basics at Lake Waconia for GNWC Teams

    By Steve Weisman
    GNWC Publicity Director
        Back to basics was worth $1200 for the team of Chad Benson and Joe
    Edlund from Bemidji as they won the first Minnesota qualifier of the Grand
    National Walleye Cup, Sunday, May 18 at Lake Waconia.
        Benson and Edlund, who along with most teams had struggled putting
    anything together during pre-fishing, turned to a Lindy Rig, and1/8-ounce
    sinker and a leech. They found their fish on the inside weed edges in 4-6
    feet of water and ended up with a four-fish basket weighing 8.12 pounds.
        Second place and a check for $600 went to the team of Travis Frank from
    St. Bonifacious and Jon LaVelle from Waconia with two walleyes weighing 5.64
    pounds. Frank and LaVelle also captured the Abu Garcia Big Fish Award of two
    6500 Linecounter reels with their 3.76 pounder.
        Meanwhile, Dustin Gesinger from Mound and Jason Wagener from Waconia
    took third place with 3.02 pounds and cashed a check for $300.
        Dave Vogt from Brainerd and Tom Vogt from Owatonna captured both fourth
    place and also The Berkley Family Angler Award as the top placing family
    team by weighing 2.71 pounds. They took home $250 in Berkley prizes for
    their efforts.
        GNWC Executive Director Bernie Barringer said, "Benson and Edlund did
    what very few people thought could be done right now on Lake Waconia. With
    the walleyes in such a negative bite, most everybody felt two, maybe even
    one good fish might win it. What these guys did was remarkable. They
    actually went back to a pre-fishing mode, found the fish and did what they
    had to do!"
        Barringer continued, "Even though the bite was tough, these teams
    battled hard. I think this Minnesota Circuit of the GNWC will be very
    exciting as we head through the four qualifiers. The next one will
    definitely spark some interest as we head to Otter Tail Lake on Sunday, June
    1. Otter Tail was hot for the opener a couple of weeks ago, and it sounds as
    if they're still going strong."
        Interested anglers can call 1-800-890-3474, email the GNWC at
    info@walleyecup.com or check out the official GNWC website at walleyecup.com
