    Veteran Pro Dan Plautz Takes 5-pound Day Two Lead at PWT Championship

        Houghton, Michigan......Veteran pro Dan Plautz, with two In-Fisherman
    Professional Walleye Trail (PWT) wins to his credit, jumped into the lead on
    day two.  The Muskego, Wis. 2-time PWT winner was competing against the
    world¹s best walleye anglers in the 2003 Mercury Championship, set to
    conclude Sunday, Sept. 14.

        Fishing the Keweenaw Waterway and Portage and Torch Lakes, Plautz landed
    a Championship limit of four walleyes weighing 19.77 pounds on day two.  His
    total of 36.59 pounds is five better than Keith Kavajecz, Kaukauna, Wis.
    Rookie of the Year Kevin Schweder, Janesville, Wis., jumped into third
    place, 25.91 pounds.  Day one leader Perry Good, Brainerd, Minn., is in
    fourth place, a few ounces behind Schweder.

        Kavajecz landed the largest walleye at 8.21 pounds on day two.  It could
    be worth $3,000.  The Quantum $1,000,000 bonus for the angler breaking the
    Michigan state record (17 pounds, 3 ounces), is still up for grabs.

        The top five anglers were trolling Portage Lake, with an emphasis on
    matching the precise depth.  Spinners with nightcrawlers trolled from up
    high all the way to 40-plus foot depths produced walleyes, and so did
    crankbaits for some.  A couple of the ³jiggers² moved into the top 10, also,
    indicating that the system holds huge numbers of walleyes.

        During the practice time, Kavajecz said, ³With my underwater camera, I
    saw more walleyes in this system than anywhere I¹ve been.²  Plautz echoed
    that sentiment, ³My fish bit early, and I know they were only a few of
    hundreds down there, but I couldn¹t get any others to go.²

        PWT Angler of the Year Bill Ortiz, Dodgeville, Wis., made a big comeback
    and moved from 43rd to ninth, and with a monster catch on the final day,
    could win the Championship and the Mercury $250,000 bonus.  The special
    Mercury incentive goes to the Angler of the Year if he also wins the

        A large crowd numbering 3,500 walleye fans, cheered and welcomed the 51
    contestants into the Michigan Tech Ice Arena.  Youngsters quickly grabbed
    the 250 complimentary Plano tackle boxes, and all said they¹d return on day
    three for one of the 1,000 Shakespeare rod and reel combos.  The boat and
    sport show running in conjunction with the walleye Championship has drawn
    huge crowds to the first-ever sport show in Houghton.

        The Sport Show will open at 10 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 14, with the final
    stage show and festival set for 4 p.m. with special music.  The first pro
    will weigh walleyes at 4:30 p.m.  The winner will receive $108,000,
    including a Lund 20-foot walleye boat and Mercury 200-horsepower outboard.
    A special $3,000 winner¹s ring, crafted by Richardson¹s Jewelers, Escanaba,
    Mich., goes to the Champion.  All pros win a minimum of $2,000, in the
    prestigious event, which does not require an entry fee.

        The PWT is an integral element of the In-Fisherman Communications
    Network headquartered in Brainerd, Minnesota, and PRIMEDIA, America's
    leading producer of targeted media. PWT sponsors include: Mercury Marine,
