  • Sam Anderson Takes Lead with
    Goal to Win His First PWT Event

    Chamberlain, South Dakota....The Missouri River slowly 
    becomes Lake Francis Case in Chamberlain, a place walleyes call home. 
    The fish were very cooperative for the In-Fisherman Professional Walleye Trail anglers and are a week post-spawn.

    The pros and their amateur partners were in the southeastern 
    corner of South Dakota fishing for $250,000 in the PowerBait/MinnKota trolling motors Midwest Pro-Am.  The 3-day tournament runs April 25 - 27, and after the first day, Wednesday
    Sam Anderson Walleye fishing pro Eagan Minnesota Sam Anderson, Eagan, Minnesota, leads with  13.29 pounds.  This is the fourth time he has led a PWT tournament, and said, "I'm ready to lead after the third day."His amateur partner, Jesse Fletcher, Pleasant Prairie, WI  also received the same weight, and leads that field. 
    Ron Seelhoff 1999 PWT Champion Holding second are 5-time PWT pro winner  Ron Seelhoff, Lewellen, NE, and amateur  Doug Lovro, Sioux Falls, SD, with 12.78   pounds
    Tommy Skarlis In third are pro Tommy Skarlis, Walker, MN who won the first PWT tournament three weeks ago and amateur Ronnie Snyder, Rushville, NE, who brought 
    11.80 pounds to the scales.
    Big fish Day 1
    The big fish of the day weighted 5.67 lbs 
    and brought $2000 for amateur 
    Dave Timper of Sioux Falls S.D and 
    pro partner Mitch Howe Billings Mt
    Despite a tough search for the bigger females who become scarce immediately following their spawning activities, some nice  walleyes came to the scales.  The top fish, 5.67 pounds, was worth  $2,000 for amateur Dave Timpe, Sioux Falls, SD.   Other Bass Pro  Shops big fish paid $1,200 to amateur Bob Allen, Gillette, WY, for a  5.54-pounder.  Third and $1,025 went to pro Steve Haynes, Duluth, MN,  for a 4.37  pound walleye.  And, fourth place paid $950 to Anderson.  His walleye weighed 3.89 pounds.

    Of the 151 pro-am partnerships, 123 came in with 6-fish PWT  limits.  With the Missouri River "slot limit," each boat was entitled  to bring two over 18 inches and four from 15 to 18 inches to the  scales.  The entire system seemed to be filled with walleyes of all  year-classes, indicating a good fishery for many, many years.
    Bob Probst Recieves award from Jim Kalkofen
    Bob Propst Sr. of Pierre S.D
    PWT executive Director Jim Kalkofen recognized Bob Propst, Sr., Pierre, SD, with the first-ever PWT Honorary Lifetime Service Award.  The special plaque read in part, "A guide to many; a fishing  pioneer; a friend to all anglers."  Propst introduced many popular  walleye tactics including deep-water fishing, bottom-bouncers and spinners, and was a terror on the tournament trail in the 1970's, 
    1980's and early 1990's.  His peers and many who learned from thousands of his seminars gave Propst a standing ovation for his accomplishments.
    Day two and day three weigh-in activities take place at Cedar Shore Resort in Chamberlain, beginning at 3 p.m.  The Friday  festivities culminate with a big payday when the pros tell where and  how they caught their fish.  Walleye fans enjoy the frank and honest  opinions, knowing they can capitalize on the lessons and tactics next  weekend and all season long.
