  • GNWC Teams Display Versatility at Prairie du Chien Tournament

    By Steve Weisman
    Gander Mountain GNWC Publicity Director
        Although fog delayed the start of the Iowa Region's final tournament on
    the Mississippi River at Prairie du Chien for an hour, that didn't stop the
    52 competing teams at the Gander Mountain Grand National Walleye Cup (GNWC)
    qualifier from putting on quite a show.
        Leading the way and taking the first place check of $1800 was the team
    of Terry Green from Mason City, IA and Steve Templeton from Clear Lake, IA
    with a four walleye limit weight of 14.09 pounds.
        Dave Smithburg from Libertyville, IA and Joel Shaw from Fairfield, IA,
    last year's Iowa Region Team of the Year, cashed the $900 second place check
    with a weight of 13.59 pounds. They also took the Berkley Trilene Big Fish
    Award of $400 in Berkley products for their 6.18 pounder.
        Third place and a check for $600 went to Dale Kruger and Art Lehrman
    with 13.51 pounds.
        According to Gander Mountain GNWC Tournament Director Dean Higgins, the
    teams displayed great versatility. "The river dropped a foot on Friday, and
    that really destroyed a lot of pre-fishing game plans. However, the top
    teams adjusted and showed the versatility that we have come to expect on the
    GNWC circuit."
        The key for the top three teams was using Bombers with the firetiger
    color working the best. Green and Templeton stayed in Pool 10 and went from
    wing dam to wing dam casting Bombers to catch their fish. Smithburg and Shaw
    also worked wing dams in the same area. Smithburg and Shaw had a slight
    scare at the weigh-in, however, when Jamie Wallingford and Don Poole from
    Farmington, IA weighed a 6.17-pound walleye, only .01 smaller than the one
    Smithburg and Shaw caught for the Berkley Trilene Big Fish Award.
         The team of Randy Mumm and Jim Juhlin from Clear Lake used a 9th place
    finish at Prairie du Chien to lock up the Iowa Team of the Year. "These two
    guys were tough all year. They started the year off at Clear Lake with a win
    and never relinquished the lead," noted Higgins.
        Other awards were also presented. 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 went to Bob Henderson from Worthington, MN and Matt Johannes
    from Harris, IA in 14th place; Steve Johnson from Britt, IA and Chad Miller
    from Allison, IA in 15th place; and Brian Kemp from Des Moines, IA and
    George Schaefers from Wadena, IA in 16th place.
        Darrelle and Mary Hinderaker from Lake Mills, IA were the winners of the
    Gander Mountain "Need More Stuff" drawing of $200 for a Gander Mountain
    Shopping Spree. 
        For complete results of the Prairie du Chien tournament, check out the
    Gander Mountain GNWC website at www.walleyecup.com.
         Next up on the Iowa Region will be the Iowa State Championship of
    Walleye Fishing at Big Spirit Lake on September 11-12. "If the action we
    have seen on the Iowa circuit this year is any indication, I know that the
    Championships will be quite a show," added Higgins.
         Anglers interested in wanting more information on the GNWC circuit can
    call 1-800-890-FISH (3474), or they can email the GNWC at
