  • Roush, Heller Take Illinois Team of the Year Honors

    By Steve Weisman
    Gander Mountain GNWC Publicity Director
        Using a fifth place finish on the Mississippi River at Albany on Sunday,
    the team of Rob Roush from Des Moines, IA and Mike Heller from West Des
    Moines, IA captured the Illinois Team of the Year honors on the Gander
    Mountain Grand National Walleye Cup (GNWC) circuit.
        Roush and Heller brought a six-walleye limit weighing 11.32 pounds to
    the scale that sealed the Team of the Year honors. First place, however,
    went to another Iowa team, Cory Batterson from Pleasant Hill, IA and Mark
    Mussman from Comanche, IA. Their six-fish weight of 15.52 pounds earned them
    the winner's check of $1000.
        Rick Holmes and Randy Reuter from Platteville, WI followed them in
    second place with a six-fish limit weight of 13.62 pounds and a check for
        Steve Lotz from Lena, IL and David Daughenbaugh from McConnell, IL
    cashed the third place check of $270 with a six-fish limit weight of 13.02
        Ron Mason from Estherville, IA and Jim Wahl from Eldridge, IA took home
    the $400 Berkley Big Fish Award in Berkley products for their 3.61-pound
        "We hit the Mississippi at the right time," said Gander Mountain GNWC
    Tournament Director Dean Higgins. "We had several six-fish limits, and the
    walleyes were in good shape."
        Mussman echoed those sentiments and added, "Thanks to the DNR for the
    slot limit."
        Fishing presentations varied. Batterson and Mussman spent the day
    running and gunning from wing dam to wing dam, throwing shad colored Bombers
    off the face of the wing dams.
        Holmes and Ruter also fished the ends of and the face of wing dams, but
    went with 3-way rigs and leeches and crawlers for bait. Holmes noted that
    they had their limit by 8:30 in the morning. "It was tough fishing. We had
    an early bite, and then things got really tough."
         Special awards include the following. The "Yo So Close" award of a Yo
    Net folding net valued at $80 was awarded to the three teams that placed out
    of the money. Those teams include Dale Kruger and Art Lehrman in 4th place;
    Rousch and Heller in 5th place; and Terry Sparks and Chris Theis in 6th
        Mason and Wahl won the Gander Mountain "Need More Stuff" drawing of $200
    for a Gander Mountain Shopping Spree.
        Next up will be the Illinois State Championship of Walleye Fishing on
    the Mississippi River at the Quad Cities on August 7-8.
