  • PWT Pro Scott Glorvigen Takes Mercury Championship Lead

        Houghton, Michigan.....Day one of the Mercury Championship proved that
    cold fronts affect even the world¹s best walleye anglers.  The In-Fisherman
    Professional Walleye Trail (PWT) Championship contestants fished the
    Keweenaw Waterway in Michigan¹s Upper Peninsula Friday, Sept. 17.

        They fished a day after a cold front pushed 55 mph winds through the
    region and dropped temperatures 20 degrees.  Knowing the challenge, most pro
    anglers slowed down and rigged and jigged nightcrawlers as slow as they
    could.  Leading the way, with an ultra-slow presentation was Grand Rapids,
    Minnesota pro Scott Glorvigen.  His PWT limit of four walleyes weighed 14.09

        He leads second place pro Brad Davis, Jackson, Wisconsin by nearly three
    pounds.  Montana pro Jim Muzynoski is in third with 10.93 pounds, while
    Minnesota pro Mark Courts is in fourth with 10.67 pounds.  Green Bay,
    Wisconsin pro Carl Grunwaldt holds fifth place with 10.08 pounds.  They are
    the only pros in double-digits.
    Half the field had two or fewer fish.

        The 51 pro contestants qualified by their success on tour this season.
    They were joined by the Mercury Top Amateur, Rick Willett-Johnson, Omaha,
    Nebraska, who blanked on day one.  Eighteen pro anglers limited on Portage
    and Torch Lakes and connecting bays and canals.  Keweenaw and Huron Bays
    were also open.

        Glorvigen said, ³With stable weather, I expect the fish will get back on
    their feeding patterns.  I feel comfortable in this system; it¹s a lot like
    northern Minnesota.²  Second place Davis said, ³My goal is four bites, and
    get Ćem in the boat.²

        The Mercury Championship includes a Saturday and Sunday Boat & Sport
    Show presented by Moyle Construction.  This will be inside the Gates Tennis
    Center starting at 10 a.m. each day.  The daily weigh-in ceremonies take
    place at the Michigan Tech MacInnes Ice Arena starting at 4 p.m. All events
    are free to the public.
    One youngster was heard to say, ³This was like a rock concert, only with
    fish, and I like fish.²

        On Saturday, the first 250 youngsters receive free Plano tackle boxes,
    and Sunday, the first 1,000 kids receive free Shakespeare spinning and rods
    and reels.

        The PWT is an integral element of the In-Fisherman Communications
    Network headquartered in Brainerd, Minnesota, and PRIMEDIA, America's
    leading producer of targeted media. PWT sponsors include: Mercury Marine,
