LEAGUE SUPER TOURNAMENT ON SAGINAW BAY
LINWOOD, Mich. (Aug. 2, 2004) Boater Thomas Vanderweide of Jenison
caught a two-day total of 10 walleyes weighing 61 pounds, 5 ounces to claim
victory at the Wal-Mart RCL Walleye League Super Tournament presented by
Evinrude held Saturday and Sunday on Saginaw Bay near Linwood. Vanderweide
earned $2,905 plus a $750 bonus for the win in the final Michigan Division
event of the season.
Vanderweide fished in 25 feet of water near Hoyles
Marina and caught his walleyes with a spinner and crawler harness. The
event was even more meaningful for Vanderweide because his son, Joshua,
finished eighth in the Co-angler Division.
