  • Big Fish Rule the Waters at GNWC's Lake Thompson Qualifier

    By Steve Weisman
    GNWC Publicity Director
        Big fish were the rule on Lake Thompson Sunday, June 29 at the third
    qualifier on the South Dakota Circuit of the Grand National Walleye Cup
        Lee Pulse from Kimball and Scott Handel from Chamberlain used a 9.72
    pounder to put them over the top and cash the winning check of $1400. Their
    five-fish weight of 21.57 pounds was almost two pounds more than the second
    place team. That 9.72 pounder also helped them capture the Abu Garcia Big
    Fish Award of two Abu Garcia 6500 Linecounter reels.
        Right behind in second place was the team of Daron Peterson from
    Humboldt and Dale Peterson from Sioux Falls with a six-fish limit weight of
    19.88 pounds. Their big fish was a 7.21 pounder. The Petersons not only took
    the $725 runner-up check, but they also took the Berkley Family Angler Award
    of $250 in Berkley product as the top placing family team.
        Roger and Tony Janssen from Castlewood took third place and $500 with a
    six-fish limit weight of 16.22 pounds.
    A total of eight teams weighed six-fish limits, while 25 of the 30 competing
    teams weighed in fish.
        It was a crankbait bite for the top teams as they pulled lead core line
    with Shad Raps and Wally Divers on the deep flats of the lake.
        "What a tournament!" said GNWC Executive Director Bernie Barringer.
    "These teams really hit the jackpot when it comes to big fish. I know now
    why many people say Lake Thompson rivals the Missouri River as a walleye
        Since Lake Thompson can be a windswept lake, a major key to angler
    success was the 10-15 mph northwest wind. "The weather cooperated and the
    teams were able to do what they wanted. We have now had three great
    tournaments in a row - Lake Francis Case, Lake Kampeska and now Lake
    Thompson! We've got one left at Mobridge on Sunday, July 20, and it looks as
    if it will be quite a showdown for the Mercury Team of the year," added
        Currently the Petersons lead the way with 13 points. However, they are
    only two points ahead of Scott Kaufmann and Todd Weisz, and three points
    ahead of Pulse and Handel.
        "Boy is it going to be fun. This South Dakota circuit has been a great
    one, and Mobridge will be a great place to have our final qualifier."
