  • Ohio Teams Head to Mosquito Creek Lake for Ohio State Championship of
    Walleye Fishing

    By Steve Weisman
    Gander Mountain GNWC Publicity Director
        It's showdown time for the top teams on the Ohio Region of the Gander
    Mountain Grand National Walleye Cup (GNWC).
        The Ohio State Championship of Walleye Fishing will be held at Mosquito
    Creek Lake on July 10-11. Activities for teams actually begin on Friday with
    the Ohio Championship Banquet at the Comfort Inn with the meal sponsored by
    the Trumbull County Tourism Association.
        Saturday the Championship gets underway at the Causeway boat ramp with
    opening ceremonies and takeoff at 7 a.m. Leading the way will be the Ohio
    Region Team of the Year, Todd Kunk from St. Henry, OH and Adam Harlamert
    from Cold Water, OH. A mere three points separated the top three teams
    during the regular season.
        "These teams have worked very hard to make it to the Championships,"
    noted Barringer. "Mosquito Creek Lake is a quality walleye fishery." It is
    also the second largest inland lake in Ohio and has a maximum depth of about
    44 feet with an average depth of around 11 feet.
        Weigh-in begins at 3 p.m., and Barringer encourages the public to
    attend. "The Championship weigh-ins are always exciting to attend. The first
    day sets the stage for the final day's competition on Sunday," noted
        Saturday's events continue with the "Gander Get-together" at the Gander
    Mountain store in Warren at 6:30 p.m.  Gander Mountain, the title sponsor of
    the GNWC circuit, will be hosting a fishing seminar by Bernie Barringer,
    professional outdoorsman and host of the Walleye Wisdom TV show. Barringer
    will cover walleye trolling tactics. This special event is free, open to the
    public and will also be a great opportunity for the public to meet the
    anglers and sponsors.
        Sunday's action follows the same format as the first day with take-off
    at 7 a.m. and weigh-in at 3 p.m. at the Causeway boat ramp. "The second
    day's weigh-in promises a lot of action. At stake will be $2,500 for first
    place and the title of champions of the Ohio State Championship of Walleye
    Fishing. With the second day over, the teams will be asked to divulge their
    secrets - what worked for them. It is a great opportunity for people to
    learn more about fishing Mosquito Creek Lake. We will also have special
    interviews with the media for the top teams."
        In addition, the Walleye Wisdom television crew will be filming footage
    of all eight Championships, including the Ohio Championship, for its popular
    13-week television program Walleye Wisdom on the Sportsman Channel and
    several regional outlets. "Our goal is to showcase the successes of our
    walleye teams, share the techniques that the GNWC teams used to catch their
    fish and to finally give fishing hints that will help our viewers become
    better walleye anglers themselves," said Barringer.
        Special awards will be given out at the Championships including the
    Berkley Big Fish Award of $400 in Berkley product for the team that catches
    the largest walleye during the two-day competition. In addition, an optional
    Big Fish Pot will go to the team catching the overall big fish during the
        A Loyalty Bonus Award of $500 will go to the highest placing team that
    fished all four regular season tournaments on the Ohio Region.
         Next, will be the $200 Gander Mountain Shopping Spree. A drawing will
    be held of teams who do not weigh a fish, and the winner will be able to
    spend the $200 on gear of their choice at any Gander Mountain Store. If all
    teams weigh fish, all will be entered in the drawing.
        YoNet Folding Nets by AMFYOYO will offer the Yo So Close Award of an $80
    folding net to the three teams finishing just out of the money.
        The VIB"E" Lure Company will sponsor the VIB"E" Lure award of two
    six-piece lure sets valued at $40 to the two teams who finish behind the Yo
    So Close award. Lure sets will also be given away as door prizes at the
    Championship banquet.
        TowTector, maker of the premium boat protector from gravel and debris,
    will offer the Towtector Comeback Award of a Towtector valued at $250 for
    the team advancing the most places from day one to day two.
        Skeeter Boats is offering any owner of a Skeeter boat who wins the Ohio
    State Championship of Walleye Fishing while fishing in the Skeeter an
    additional $1000 above their GNWC winnings.
        Aqua Innovations will give an additional $250 to any team who wins the
    Ohio Championship if their boat's livewell is equipped with the Aqua
    Innovations oxygen enhancement system. Plus they will be awarding systems to
    the anglers as door prizes at the Championship banquet.
