  • Scholl and Hulsing Take GNWC's Iowa State Walleye Championship

    By Steve Weisman
    GNWC Publicity Director
        "One big one will make the difference!" Those were the recurring words
    made by Grand National Walleye Cup (GNWC) teams at the Iowa State Walleye
    Championships held on Clear Lake last weekend.
        With no patterns established during several days of pre-fishing and
    several weather changes, the 30 teams vying for the State Championship title
    knew one fish would make all the difference.
        For the team of Chris Scholl from Manley and Kevin Hulsing from Cedar
    Rapids, a 4.17 pound walleye taken at midday on Saturday made all the
    difference as they captured the 2003 GNWC Iowa State Walleye Championships
    and cashed a winning check of $6000.
        Along with their one big fish, Scholl and Hulsing managed to scratch out
    one more keeper for a total weight of 6.10 pounds. The winners also won the
    Big Fish Pot of $600 and two ABU Garcia 6500 Linecounter reels for the ABU
    Garcia Big Fish Award for Day I.
        Second place and a check for $2000 went to Jeff Thomas from Allburnett
    and Craig Kerslake from Marion with two fish weighing 5.63 pounds.
        Meanwhile, Randy Mumm and Jim Juhlin from Clear Lake took the $1000
    third place check with three walleyes weighing 5.43 pounds. They also took
    the ABU Garcia Big Fish Award on Sunday for their 3.08 pound walleye.
        The Berkley Family Angler Award of over $200 in Berkley product for the
    top placing family team went to Terry and Bruce Sparks from Des Moines with
    a two-day weight of 2.44 pounds.
        "Talk about tough!" said GNWC Executive Director Bernie Barringer. "I've
    never seen a mid-September bite on Clear Lake this tough. One reason has to
    do with the tremendous year class of yellow bass. All these walleyes have to
    do is open their mouth and the food is there! There was simply no pattern to
    these fish! Even so, we were still able to shoot some good footage for our
    television series Walleye Wisdom that will be aired on the Sportsman Channel
    later this fall. "
        Barringer added, "The weather changes made things tough, too. We had a
    major weather change from Friday to Sunday, and I know that made things
    doubly tough for the teams."
        Since there was no pattern to the bite, the teams either stuck with a
    pre-determined game plan or spent their time running from spot to spot and
    trying everything in their tackle box!
        Scholl and Hulsing stuck with their game plan of trolling Firetiger
    jointed Shad Raps along the north half of the lake. They caught their big
    fish going over a small hump toward the middle of the lake.
        Thomas and Kerslake went deeper and also trolled crankbaits, but chose
    to use blue RS Shad Raps instead.
        Mumm and Juhlin went a different route and anchored off of Gilmore's
    Reef casting jigs tipped with either a minnow or nightcrawler.
        "I'm really proud of the efforts these teams gave. Even when things are
    really tough, they just keep battling and searching for that one thing that
    can make a difference," said Barringer. "It was still a great weekend. We
    had a tremendous banquet sponsored by Con-Agra Foods on Friday night, good
    crowds at the weigh-in and the sponsors for the Iowa State Walleye
    Championship really rolled out the red carpet for us. We certainly thank
    them for all that they did for us."
        With the state championships now completed, only the Grand National
    Walleye Championship remains. This will be held at the Okoboji Chain of
    Lakes October 9-11.
