  • Wisconsin Regional Championships Slated for Green Lake, August 28-29

    By Steve Weisman
    Gander Mountain GNWC Publicity Director
        After a season of four qualifying tournaments on the Wisconsin circuit
    of the Gander Mountain Grand National Walleye Cup (GNWC), those teams who
    made the cut are now preparing for the Wisconsin State Championship of
    Walleye Fishing, which will be held at Green Lake on August 28-29. They will
    be competing for the first place prize of $4000 in cash plus trophies, and
    the possibility of another $500 in special bonus incentives.
        Leading the way will be the Wisconsin Region Team of the Year, Robert
    Blosser from Lodi, WI and Gary Tomlinson from Poynette, WI, who edged Craig
    Swatek from Wisconsin Rapids, WI and Scott Swatek from Lone Rock, WI by 1
    point to take the coveted Team of the Year title. "That was quite a finish
    for the Team of the Year. The Wisconsin Region was very competitive, and I
    see the Championships to be more of the same," said Gander Mountain Grand
    National Walleye Cup (GNWC) Executive Director Bernie Barringer.
        Barringer expressed excitement about holding the Wisconsin State
    championship of Walleye Fishing at Green Lake. "We welcome the opportunity
    to feature Green Lake for our state championship. It's a great opportunity
    to come to a community and highlight the work that has been done to help
    restore this great fishery, and to show anglers and communities everywhere
    that great fishing can be the result of working together for the good of the
         Green Lake, which is the deepest inland lake in Wisconsin, presents the
    competing teams with many challenges. According to Dennis Walker, who has
    Dennis Walker's Pontoon Guide Service, it's going to take lots of
    pre-fishing strategy because of the lake's incredible depth and variety of
    structure. "It's a fun lake to fish, but it will also be a heck of a
    challenge. I'll be interested to see how these teams will do."
        Walker added, "Green Lake is a good walleye lake-but a tough walleye
    lake. I am sure a lot of teams will pull boards, but that can be difficult
    because of the floating weeds from all the boat activity. Flat calm days are
    the worst for that."
        Barringer concurred. "These are the things that the teams are going to
    have to work through during pre-fishing. I do know one thing. The GNWC has a
    great respect for this fishery, and we are pleased to be invited to this
        For the GNWC teams, the activities actually start on Friday evening with
    the Wisconsin Championship Banquet sponsored by the Green Lake Convention
    and Visitors Bureau. "The Green Lake Convention and Visitors Bureau has done
    a fantastic job in preparing for the Championship. They have been great to
    work with, and I know that we will have a great time," said Barringer.
        The tournament opens Saturday morning with a 7 a.m. take-off, and
    weigh-in will take place at 3 p.m. Take-off and weigh-ins will be held at
    Sunset Park on County Road A, at the east end of the lake. "We certainly
    invite the public out to witness each day's weigh-ins. Each day will present
    a different sort of drama. Saturday's weigh-in will show the anglers and the
    crowd just where everybody stands going into Sunday's action. Then comes
    Sunday's weigh-in where the crowd will get a chance to see how the teams
    adjusted from the first day's fishing. It will also be a time to learn what
    these teams did to unlock the secrets of Green Lake," said Barringer.
        In addition, the Walleye Wisdom television crew will be filming footage
    of all eight Championships, including the Wisconsin State Championship, for
    its popular 13-week television program Walleye Wisdom, which is aired on the
    Sportsman Channel, Fox Sports 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
        Special awards will be give 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 Championships. In addition, an
    optional Big Fish Pot will go to the big fish taken during the
         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 for towing vehicles, will
    offer the Towtector Comeback Award of a Towtector Shield valued at $250 for
    the 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
    Wisconsin State Championship 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
    Wisconsin State 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.
