  • Father-son Team Take Gander Mountain Grand National Walleye Cup Opener at Winneconne

    By Steve Weisman
    Gander Mountain GNWC Publicity Director
        The father-son team of Russell and Steve Wagner from Pewaukee, WI took
    home both the $1200 first place check and the Berkley Trilene Big Fish Award
    at the Gander Mountain Grand National Walleye Cup's opening tournament of
    the Wisconsin Region held on Winneconne's Lake Winnebago chain and the Wolf
    River on Sunday, April 18.
         The Wagners, with a winning weight of 10.94 pounds, were the only ones
    to bring a six-fish limit to the scales. They found success by drifting the
    rocky areas of the Wolf River, vertically jigging leadheads. Russ noted, "We
    lost a lot of jigs in the rocks, so we're definitely going to need to
    restock." They both agreed, however, that losing a few jigs was a small
    price to pay for taking the Winneconne title and the Berkley Trilene Big
    Fish Award of $400 in Berkley products. Their big fish weighed 4.41 pounds.
        Taking second place and cashing a check for $600 was the team of Dale
    Helgeson from Elkhorn, WI and Michael Sigl from Black Creek, WI with four
    fish weighing 6.25 pounds. They found that the strong south winds hampered
    them as they trolled baby Thundersticks to catch their four walleyes.
        Third place and a check for $500 went to Doug Sasse from Winneconne, WI
    and Jeff Graves from Oshkosh, WI with four fish weighing 5.72 pounds. They
    caught their fish working Wolf River rigs and minnows upstream against the
        The "Yo So Close" award of a Yo Net folding net valued at $80 went to
    the three teams that placed just out of the money. They include Brad Davis
    from Jackson, WI and Joe Palmer from Manitowoc, WI in 8th place; Robert
    Blosser from Lodi, WI and Gary Tomlinson from Poynette, WI in 9th place; Dan
    Gosenheimer from Wild Rose, WI and Adam Hackbarth from Oshkosh, WI in 10th
            Erik Potter from Fort Atkinson, WI and George Meris from Beloit, WI
    were the winners of the Gander Mountain "Need More Stuff" drawing of $200
    for a Gander Mountain Shopping Spree.
        According to Gander Mountain GNWC Tournament Director Dean Higgins, the
    bite was tough. "The wind really hampered the teams, so it was quite an
    achievement for the Wagners to put together a six-fish limit the way they
    did. In spite of the wind, this is a great fishery, and the teams showed
    good sportsmanship throughout the tournament." Higgins went on to say, "The
    volunteer help was outstanding. Doug and his crew of volunteers really
    helped make everything go smoothly."
        The Wisconsin teams are back in action on Sunday, May 16 at Petenwell.
