    It took 11 years, but Mark  Martin, Twin Lake, MI, won his second In-Fisherman Professional Walleye Trail tournament.  He captured the first PWT Championship in 1990, but claimed the $50,000 first prize at the PowerBait/MinnKota

    He kept his boat in 10 feet of water and pitched 1/16th ounce Fireball jigs and minnows to a foot of water. Sometimes the fish preferred the lightweight jig to rest on the bottom for five seconds or more.  Strikes were easily detected with 6/2 non-stretch FireLine

    The top amateur, who fished with three different pros was  John Galaska, Omaha, NE.   He won a Lund Walleye boats boat and Mercury Outboard Motors The Water Calls outboard valued at $12,500.  The pro-am format allows amateurs a chance to fish and learn throughout each fishing day.
