    Walleyes Thrill PWT Contestants

    Chamberlain, South Dakota....Fishing under "summer" skies, the In-Fisherman Professional Walleye Trail (PWT) anglers enjoyed South Dakota weather today.  The boats departed this morning to a brilliant sunrise, and the day just got better, with light breezes and 80-degree temperatures.

    For some anglers, the fishing was better; others scratched 
    out their 6-fish limits in the PowerBait / MinnKota trolling motors Midwest Pro-Am. The final day of the tournament will see $250,000 in cash and merchandise awarded to pros and amateurs, with $50,000 to the winning 
    pro.  The top amateur earns a Lund boat, Mercury outboard and Eagle trailer valued at $12,500.  Leading the amateur division after two days is John Weiss, Union Grove, WI.

    Gary Parsons walleye fishing pro Shenwood Wisconsin Two-time PWT Angler of the Year winner Gary Parsons, Glidden, WI, with  24.57 pounds is in third, and pro Paul Meleen, Onamia, MN, holds fourth with 23.96 pounds.
    A total of 48 anglers are within five pounds of the lead.   Limits were the rule with 126 limits today, compared to 123 on day one.  More than 95 percent were 
    released alive once again. Prevailing patterns included jigging the shallows, running 
    bottom bouncers with single hooks and minnows and some crankbait trolling.  Many male walleyes were hanging shallow, some tight against the rocks in a foot of water.  The Missouri River was rising, and has come up about a foot during the past two days, primarily due to snow melt.  Over the weekend a foot of snow covered the area, and in four days, the landscape switched from winter to summer.

    Bass Pro Shops big fish awards went to pro Mark Broderick, East Bethel, MN, with a 5.13 pound walleye.  The top spot pays $2,000 daily.  In second was amateur Paul Wright, West Point, IN with a 4.98-pounder.  He won $1,200.  Third and $1,025 went to Parsons who had a 4.96-pounder, while a 4 1/2 pound walleye was worth $950 for amateur John Flaherty, Thornton, CO.

    The third and final day weigh-in takes place Friday at Cedar Shore Resort on the shores of the Missouri in Chamberlain at 3 p.m. The festivities conclude with distribution of a quarter million dollars.  Pros share their tactics and "hotspots" following the weigh-in, and the public is invited to the free spectacle.
