  • 2003 GNWC Iowa State Walleye Championship Teams Prepare for Clear Lake

    By Steve Weisman
    GNWC Publicity Director
        It's just around the corner! The top walleye teams in the state of Iowa
    are preparing to converge on Clear Lake for the 2003 Grand National Walleye
    Cup's (GNWC) Iowa State Walleye Championship.
        The championship will feature up to 30 teams who have qualified for the
    two-day tournament at Clear Lake September 13-14. The Iowa circuit of the
    GNWC was formerly the Iowa Walleye Tournament Trail, but has since become
    part of the five-state Grand National Walleye Cup.
        Leading the way will be Dave Smithburg from Libertyville and Joel Shaw
    from Fairfield, who captured the Mercury Team of the Year as the top team on
    the Iowa Circuit. 
        "Clear Lake is traditionally a top walleye producing lake in Iowa," said
    Barringer. "The teams have been off since the end of June, so I know they
    are ready for the State competition. We're excited to be back at Clear Lake,
    and I predict these guys will put on quite a show. Plus, our sponsors have
    really worked hard to make this a memorable experience for all of the
    qualifying GNWC teams."
        Barringer continued, "Another part of the excitement will be the filming
    of the championship by the Walleye Wisdom television crews. The action will
    be part of our new walleye fishing show that will be aired on the Sportsman
    Channel this fall."
        Teams will be fishing for more than $12,000 in cash and prizes, with
    first place getting a guaranteed $6000 in cash plus trophies.
        In addition, each day the team that catches the big walleye of the day
    will be awarded two Abu Garcia 6500 Linecounter reels. An optional Big Fish
    pot is $20 per team with a 100 percent payback for the largest fish of the
    tournament. Another award is the Berkley Family Award of over $200 in
    Berkley product that goes to the top overall family team.
        Although the tournament begins on Saturday, the activities actually
    begin on Friday with an awards banquet and supper at the Best Western. "The
    meal, sponsored by Con-Agra Foods, is complimentary for all qualifying
    teams, and at the awards banquet we will present Dave Smithburg and Joel
    Shaw their Mercury Team of the Year certificates. There will also be lots of
    door prizes to give out." Following the Friday evening banquet will be the
    Official Rules Meeting.
        Saturday, September 13 is the first day of the State competition with
    the take-off at 7 a.m. The weigh-in will begin at 3 p.m. sharp and will be
    held each day at the band shell in the Clear Lake City Park.
        "Even though Saturday is the first day of the tournament, we hope to get
    a lot of people out to the weigh-in. To catch all of the action, people
    should be at the weigh-in by 2:45. These are the top walleye anglers in the
    Hawkeye state, and their challenge is to put together a game plan that will
    take them to the top," said Barringer.
        Sunday's competition follows Saturday's agenda with the teams back in
    for the 3 p.m. weigh-in. "We really encourage people to come to the second
    day weigh-ins. It is exciting to see the baskets of fish come to the scales,
    and it is also fascinating for the crowd to find out what the teams did to
    catch their fish."
        Following the weigh-in, trophies and checks will be awarded.
