    Antioch, Illinois  --   Mike Gofron walleye fishing pro from Antioch Illinois Mike Gofron, Professional Walleye Angler, received his best birthday present ever on Saturday, September 15.
    He won the In-Fisherman Professional Walleye Trail Championship with an incredible 27.49 pounds of Missouri River walleye. Gofron edged out Ron Seelhoff, two-time Championship winner by a little over a pound.  It couldn¹t go to a better or tougher competitor,² Seelhoff said.

    Gofron won the prestigious Championship using Northlands  Buckshot
    Rattle Jig in 17-22 feet of water. Jigging is Gofron¹s signautre technique, using his Lowrance electronics and MotorGuide to hold at the key depth.

    Jigging is Gofron's signautre technique, using his Lowrance electronics and MotorGuide to hold at the key depth. 
    He fished south of Cannonball by 22 miles for all three days and led the touranment each day. Gofron¹s previous win was last year at the PWT Sault Ste. Marie tournament. He has now set another record by achieving all titles offered by the PWT, except for Rookie of the Year. He also has 24 top-10 finishes, more than any other PWT angler.. This season was perhaps Gofron's toughest year, overcoming his
    Father-in-Law's death this fall. 
    In fact, he did not actually earn a Championship berth until the last day of the last qualifying tournament. A family member remarked that this was Gofron¹s year to win.  I am dedicating this win to my Father-in-Law. He was a great man and this is a great victory. 
    Gofron won $100,000 plus a Lund boat and a Dodge truck. Tearfully, Tami, his wife, said,  We will be donating a portion to disaster relief in NewYork.  Gofron reminded people that we live in a great country.  Thanks to the city of Bismarck and all the fans. It makes winning the Championship even better.
    The Championship crowd filled the Bismarck Civic Center on Saturday afternoon. Temperatures hovered between 50 and 60 degrees with 15 to 25 mph winds each day.
