  • Survey Results Reveal Walleye 'Who's Who' List

        Brainerd, Minnesota......When asked their opinions, In-Fisherman
    Professional Walleye Trail (PWT) anglers voted.  Recently, walleye
    competitors named those "best at" trolling, jigging, boat control, and many
    other categories.

        Versatility is one of the necessities for success on tour.  PWT pro
    anglers must be ready to troll, jig, rig, slip-bobber, bottom-bounce and
    know when to switch.  The top 10 pro anglers judged to be the best
    all-around anglers under all conditions and all waters follow:

        1.  Mike Gofron, Antioch, IL            6.  Tommy Skarlis,
    Walker, MN
        2.  Gary Parsons, Glidden, WI            7.  John Kolinski,
    Greenville, WI
        3.  Pete Harsh, Sauk Centre, MN        8.  Mark Martin, Twin Lake, MI
        4.  Keith Kavajecz, Kaukauna, WI        9.  Rick Olson, Mina Lake,
        5.  Gary Gray, Oshkosh, WI            10. Mark Brumbaugh, Arcanum,
                                10. Ron Seelhoff,
    Burlington, CO 

        Walleye fishing is often done under adverse situations (and
    occasionally calm waters), but usually the boat is a major factor in
    lure/bait presentations.  Maintaining position over exact spots or
    controlling speed can mean the difference between a paycheck and finishing
    out of the money.  The Top 10 most successful anglers at boat control,

        1.  Pete Harsh, Sauk Centre, MN        6.  Mark Brumbaugh, Arcanum,
        2.  Mike Gofron, Antioch, IL            6.  Mark Martin, Twin Lake,
        3.  Gary Parsons, Glidden, WI            8.  Daryl Christensen,
    Montello, WI
        4.  Bruce Samson, Minnetrista, MN        8.  Rick Olson, Mina Lake,
        5.  Keith Kavajecz, Kaukauna, WI        10. Tommy Skarlis, Walker,
                                10. Ron Seelhoff,
    Burlington, CO

        It should come as no surprise that the anglers listed in these two
    surveys are also on the Top 10 list of those who best represent the pro
    angler image.  In addition to the anglers above, PWT pros also named Scott
    and Marty Glorvigen, Grand Rapids, MN, and Ted Takasaki, East Gull Lake, MN,
    to those who uphold the pro "image."  Parsons and Kavajecz were numbers one
    and two on this list.

        The walleye fishing ranks include rookies to 20-year veterans.  The
    Top 10 list of walleye pro anglers who have had the most influence on the
    pros who fish for a living includes most anglers listed in the two surveys
    above.  The Top two were Parsons (1st) and Gofron (2nd).  

        Amazing as it seems, Parsons and Gofron traded similar positions for
    most lists.  Gofron received the most votes as the pro they would most enjoy
    fishing with.  Harsh was second, Parsons third.   The best trollers were
    Seelhoff (1st) and Parsons (2nd).  Gofron was first at jigging, with
    Christensen second.  And, Gofron was just behind Harsh in the live bait
    rigger's Top 10 list.  

        These anglers represent the best of the best among the pro anglers
    who fish the PWT tour.  Each season, hundreds of amateur partners fish with
    these fishermen and the other pros to learn all they can.  Some fish the
    Great Lakes to learn tactics for catching open water, suspended walleyes.
    Others elect to fish rivers to find out about vertical jigging, or jump into
    a western reservoir tournament to discover key spots that  hold walleyes.  

        Gofron said, "I really like working with my amateur partners and
    teaching them.  Once in awhile, my partners have told me they just want to
    watch.  After a couple fish, they start asking questions, and the seminar
    begins."  Parsons echoed those sentiments, "Fishing every day with a new
    person is challenging, but forces me to communicate exactly what we're doing
    and why.  From the hook set to the net, I coach my new partners every step
    of the way.  They probably would rather I keep quiet, but each bite is
    critical to winning Angler of the Year or making it to the Championship.
    With so much riding on the special awards and incentives from my sponsors, I
    want to catch everything that bites."

        The PWT schedule is posted along with many other details about
    competitive walleye fishing and the top 10 lists at
    www.professionalwalleyetrail.com.  Opportunities exist for amateurs to ride
    along and fish as partners (boat-weight format) in one or as many as six
    qualifying tournaments in 2004.
