  • South Dakota Angler Mike Kulm Wins $64,000 at Missouri River PWT Tournament

        Chamberlain, SD......Claiming his first In-Fisherman Professional
    Walleye Trail (PWT) victory and $64,000, was pro Mike Kulm, Rapid City, SD.
    He did it over the course of three days, May 12-14, with 30.40 pounds.
    Those 15 walleyes paid about $4,300 each at the Trilene/PowerBait Pro-Am
    Artificial Challenge.  Competition took place on the Missouri River at
    Chamberlain, SD. 

        The top placing amateur was Paul Kampfe, Sidney, Neb., who towed home a
    $17,000 Lund boat and Mercury outboard on an Eagle trailer.   He also split
    the big fish $3,000 cash honors with pro Leon Houle, Lino Lakes, Minn.  They
    caught a 9.40 pounder on day one.  And, Kampfe and Houle won the Gander
    Mountain Heavyweight Award of $300 and $500 gift cards.

        Kulm, fishing his sixth PWT season, has placed third in 2001, and 10th
    in 2000, on two Missouri River systems.  He currently leads the MotorGuide
    Western Division.  The top 10 divisional anglers at the end of the season
    qualify for the Mercury Championship.  Kulm fished the first two days near
    the dam, about 20 miles upstream from Chamberlain.  He ran three ounce
    bottom bouncers with crankbaits in the heavy current.  On day three this
    pattern did not work for him, and he jigged the bluffs about three miles
    south of the dam with Northland FireBall jigs and minnows.

        Taking second was pro Jim Randash, also from Rapid City, and a close
    friend and fishing buddy of Kulm¹s.  He employed similar tactics for his
    $20,000 paycheck.  Randash is a past Mercury Championship winner.  The third
    place pro, Dave Andersen, Amery, Wis., won $13,000.  Gerrick McComsey,
    Pierre, SD, placed fourth for $11,000, and Mike Gofron, Antioch, Ill, placed
    fifth, to extend his PWT record with the most top 10 place finishes, 26, of
    any PWT pro.  He won $10,000.

        Johnnie Candle won the Coleman Cool Under Pressure $1,000 award for
    advancing 62 places.  He also placed 34th for $2,000.  Rookie pro Dan
    Swanson, Fort Collins, Col., finished 13th and won $4,000, and leads the
    Stowmaster Rookie of the Year race.  Tommy Skarlis, with a $5,000 10th place
    finish following a win in Wisconsin last month, leads the PWT Angler of the
    year race.  

        The PWT Key Award was bestowed on Jessica Schoenhard, Chamberlain/Oacoma
    Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, for the great treatment shown the
    anglers and their volunteer efforts.  ³Chamberlain is one of our favorite
    sites, with Cedar Shore Resort and marina the perfect location for a
    tournament.  The fishery is the best it¹s been, and I want to come back,²
    said winner Kulm.  His sentiments were echoed by most pros as they crossed
    the stage.

        The tour next stops at Cass Lake, Minn., June 2-4, with headquarters at
    Stony Point Resort.  A total of $280,000 in cash and merchandise is paid out
    at each stop.  For photos, schedules, details and more, check the PWT web
    site at www.professionalwalleyetrail.com.  Pros fish with amateur partners
    every day of the three day tournaments, and a handful of amateur spots
    remain at Bull Shoals, Ark., June 23-25.
