  • The Search for $250,000 Walleyes 
    Starts in Sault Ste. Marie July 18

        Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan....From the famous Soo Locks 
    downstream, the top  anglers in the world will be searching for the 
    $250,000 prize walleyes.  They will fish a maze of St. Mary's River 
    channels, islands and bays in the Mercury/Trilene Northeast Pro-Am, 
    July 18-20.

        This will be the second year in a row for the In-Fisherman 
    Professional Walleye Trail (PWT) tournament in Sault Ste. Marie. 
    Last year's winner Mike Gofron walleye fishing pro from Antioch Illinois Mike Gofron, Antioch, IL, said, "I'm looking 
    forward to coming back.  The crowds were enthusiastic and everywhere 
    I went, people were friendly and interested in fishing.  It's a nice 
    place to take the family."

        When Gofron, a PWT Championship qualifier every year he's 
    fished the tour, speaks, walleye anglers listen.  He has more top 10 
    place finishes, 23, than any other pro.  He has won Angler of the 
    Year titles and Remington Top Gun honors.  He said, "I expect a 
    consistent bite, with the deeper river patterns probably most 
    productive."  Gofron, known as a master jig fisherman, will probe the 
    river's many rock humps.

        All activities take place at river front Aune Osborn Park 
    about a mile east of the Locks.  Weigh-in begins at 3 p.m. daily, 
    Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, which is a great opportunity to meet 
    and greet pro anglers.  Following Friday's weigh-in, nearly $250,000 
    will be awarded, including $50,000 to the pro winner and a $12,500 
    Lund/Mercury boat package to the winning amateur.

        The PWT is a Pro-Am format, with the pros providing all gear 
    and tackle.  Each amateur joins a different pro daily for the world's 
    best educational fishing seminar.  Together the pro and amateur try 
    to catch six walleyes large enough to win any of the top 30 prizes, 
    plus the $5,000 daily Bass Pro Shops big fish awards.

        This is the fifth PWT tour stop of 2001, with the final 
    destination, Lake Erie at Dunkirk, NY, in August.  A few amateur 
    openings exist in both tournaments, and interested anglers should 
    contact PWT Headquarters at 218-829-0620, or check these web sites, 
    www.in-fisherman.com or www.professionalwalleyetrail.com for details.

        Leading the In-Fisherman Angler of the Year race is Chief Kim Papineau walleye pro of Escanaba Michigan Kim 
    Papineau, Escanaba, MI, one of several Upper Peninsula Michigan 
    anglers attempting to keep the Northeast Pro-Am title in the UP. 
    Other area anglers with intentions on the top prize include Mike 
    McMaken, Cedarville, Rick Erickson and John Hohense, Iron River, and 
    Dee Ransom, Sault Ste. Marie.  McMaken, a rookie pro this year, 
    considers the tournament as "home waters."

        He said, "I'd like to the the one with the big catch, and 
    feel it will take a 4 1/2 pound average to win.  So many spots can 
    produce, and if I stay focused on a limit each day and fish my best, 
    maybe this will be my chance."

        The PWT is part of PRIMEDIA, Inc., America's leading producer of targeted media headquartered in New York City. PWT sponsors include:  Sault Convention & Visitors Bureau:  800-647-2858
