ISLE, Minn. (June 28, 2004) – Boater Tom Weihrauch of St. Cloud and

weighing 11 pounds. Steve Bradt of Hudson, Wis. ($960 plus $300 bonus)
and Jeff Sather of Montevideo ($480 plus $150 bonus) caught four walleyes
weighing 9 pounds, 3 ounces to finish in third place. Steve Bissett of
Garrison ($832 plus $250 bonus) and Nicole Bassing of Braham ($416) claimed
fourth place with one walleye that weighed 8 pounds, 9 ounces. Finishing
fifth were Troy Robinson of Becker ($576 plus $200 bonus) and Michael Von
Lorenz of Shakopee ($288 plus $100 bonus) thanks to a four-walleye catch
that weighed 8 pounds, 5 ounces.
The Minnesota Division’s next stop will be the final
