    By Chuck Harmston

    Pre-fishing was an interesting time with the weather conditions ranging from a blizzard on Sunday to  sunny and 70 degrees on Tuesday. The walleyes were also in middle of spawning. The top presentation for pre-fishing in our boat was to pitch yellow or orange and yellow Lindy fuzzy grubs tipped with fat head minnows into the rip rap shore lines or the many shale points and high banks. Vertical jigging in the  10 to 28 foot ranges also proved to be productive. These presentations also were key during  tournament time for most contestants. With the slot size of four fish 15 to 18 inches and two fish over18 inches per boat this would prove to be a tournament separated by ounces for many of the anglers.  When tournament time rolled around high pressure had set in bringing three beautiful days to be on the water. After the final weigh ins on day three Mark Martin pulled out the win over Sam Anderson by a little less than two pounds with a 37.26 lbs. to 35.48 lbs. respectively. The top amateur was John  Galaska with 36.69 lbs. Pro Dave Truett out of Lowell IN. caught the largest walleye of the tournament weighing in at 7.45 lbs. I would also like to commend In-Fisherman for a well-organized and  professionally run tournament. A tremendous amount of behind the scenes work and effort are put into the tournaments and they executed it perfectly. Great job!

    About Chamberlain / Oacoma South Dakota Area: Lake Francis Case is a incredible fishery with   many boats reporting catches between 20 to 40 fish per day with the occasional fish 22 to 24 inches  long. Boat launches were numerous and appeared to be brand new with lots of parking. And if you don't
    have a boat, there was a lot of shore fisherman having great success. There are many hotels in the area that accommodates anglers with boats and trailers. If you would prefer to stay on the water Cedar Shores Resort has excellent facilities with boat slips. As far as eating goes (one of my favorite past times) Al's Oasis in downtown Oacoma would be hard to beat. The people of Chamberlain / Oacoma have a lot to be proud of. From the beautiful scenery of the rolling hills, to the wildlife that seemed to  be everywhere and also having some of the most friendly people you could ever meet, makes this a  location that I would highly recommend for a fishing trip. I know that I'll be going back for another visit.
