Mumm, Voigts Take Clear Lake Title

By Steve Weisman GNWC Publicity Director


Battling the effects of a strong cold front, the team of Randy Mumm from Clear Lake, IA and Jason Voigts from Hanlontown, IA, used a 4.97-pound kicker fish to outdistance the other 54 teams on the Grand National Walleye Cup's (GNWC) Iowa Region held at Clear Lake, Sunday, April 24. Mumm and Voigts, who brought a five-fish limit weight of 13.15 pounds to the scales, pocketed $2000 for first place. The win was especially emotional for Mumm as his 2004 partner Jim Juhlin, who had been sidelined earlier in the year with a heart attack, watched from the crowd. Second place and a check for $1000 went to the team of Jesse Roush from Clive, IA and Cory Batterson from Pleasant Hill, IA with a five-fish limit weight of 12.84 pounds. They also brought home the Cabela's Big Fish Award and a $200 Cabela's shopping spree for their 7.64-pound walleye. They also pocketed $420 in cash for winning the optional Big Fish pot. Kevin Kuiper from Dayton, IA and Steve Hansen from Ft. Dodge, IA also weighed a five-fish limit tipping the scales at 10.69 pounds, giving them third place and a check of $610. Jack Davis and Rob Funk from Mason City, IA matched their 4th place finish at the first tournament on the Mississippi River two weeks ago with another 4th place finish at Clear Lake. Their 5-fish weight of 9.96 pounds was worth $460 and earned them the lead in the race for the "Yamaha Team of the Year Award", which goes to the team in each of the seven regions that finishes with the fewest points after completing all four qualifiers. A similar strategy emerged as the top three teams talked of their day on the water. Instead of fishing the big lake, the top teams stayed on the little lake and trolled crankbaits. For the Iowa teams, the recently passed "no cull" rule has changed the traditional strategy of upgrading. Now, once a walleye is in the livewell, it stays in the livewell. For Mum and Voigts that meant their day was over by noon! Using orange colored stick baits, they varied their speed from 2.2 to 2.5 mph. Their two big fish, one a 4.97 pounder came using boards to help get the plugs away from the boat. "We found a pod of fish straight off the dock in front of the weigh-in," Mumm noted. "We found quality fish during pre-fishing, and they were still there today." Roush and Batterson also worked cranks but, according to Batterson, with a slightly different twist. "We didn't mess with boards. Instead, we used 12' rods for the outside lines." They found firetiger jointed Rapalas to be their key bait. With a laugh, Roush added that even though they finished in second place, "We stubbed our toe today, because we lost a 20-inch walleye at the boat. We had it right at the boat and fumbled around and lost it." Kuiper and Hansen also pulled firetiger crankbaits in the same area but caught three of their fish toward the end of the day. The Yo So Close Award, provided by AMFYOYO, manufacturer of the innovative stowable folding landing net, went to the three teams just finishing out of the money. They include Ron Mason and Arnold Zerke from Estherville, IA in 14th place; Bryan Paul from Buffalo Center, IA and Kevan Paul from Clear Lake, IA in 15th place; and Roger Murray and Paula Griggs from Milo, IA in 16th place. GNWC Executive Director Bernie Barringer felt the teams did well considering the cold front and wind conditions. "The weather definitely made things tougher. However, we still had 16 teams weigh limits. Clear Lake proved again that it is a quality fishery. Things will really get exciting now as we head into the second half of the season with the third tournament at Lake Rathbun." The Lake Rathbun tournament is scheduled for Sunday, May 22. For those interested in entering this or any of the remaining qualifiers, call 1-800-890-FISH (3474), or email the GNWC at info@walleyecup.com. "Now that the tournaments are underway, I encourage people to check out our website at www.walleyecup.com. I think they will find it extremely interesting to see how the teams do in each of the seven regions," added Barringer. Major national sponsors for the GNWC include Skeeter Boats, Yamaha Outboards, Lowrance Electronics, YoNet Folding Nets by AMFYOYO, Aqua-VU, Aqua Innovations, Cabela's and UpNorthOutdoors.com. National championship sponsors are Towtector Shield and the VIB"E" Lure Company, while Iowa Region sponsors include Carlson-Sanderson Real Estate, Motor Inn, Inc., and Triggs Bay Resort.
