                        Walleye Anglers & Fans Prepare
                        For Championship in Bismarck, ND

    Brainerd, Minnesota.....Following a record-setting season, the In-Fisherman 
Professional Walleye Trail anglers head to the Mercury Championship Sept. 
12-14.  Only the top qualifiers after the April to August competitive tour 
have been invited to the Bismarck, North Dakota.

    Leading the elite 51-person field is Wisconsin’s John Kolinski, the 
Miller/In-Fisherman Angler of the Year.  That honor paid $25,000, and with 
it the coveted Number One ranking.  He finished with a pair of third place 
finishes, a record Angler of the Year weight, 361 pounds, and won $53,900 in 
2002.  Kolinski, who lives on the shores on Lake Winnebago in Menasha, has 
qualified for four Mercury Championships in six seasons.

    Wearing Number Two is Lindy Little Joe president Ted Takasaki, a former 
Championship winner in 1998.  Perry Good, Eagan, Minn., ranks third.  He is 
a 3-time PWT winner, including the 1994 Championship.  Keith Kavajecz, 
Kaukauna, Wis., is fourth, and a tournament winner.  Qualifying fifth is 
Bill St. Peter, Bay City, Mich., who won the final event of this season, and 
has made every Championship in the four years he fished, establishing a 
record as the only 3-time qualifier from the Dee Zee Divisions.

    A total of 35 past winners will be in Bismarck, along with 18 first-time 
pros (six of them are Rookie pros).  Mike Gwizdala, Kawkawlin, Mich., won 
the Raymarine Rookie of the Year honors and three entries for the 2003 PWT 
tour.  He placed 18th, 22nd and 24th, winning $11,725, and a $5,200 Yamaha 
ATV as the Dee Zee East Division winner.  Pros representing 14 states (a 
record) and Canada will compete.  For the first time, Montana, Kansas and 
Pennsylvania will send pros to the Championship.

    The PWT Pro-Am tour features amateurs fishing three day tournaments with a 
different pro daily.  Amateurs fish in the pro’s boat, use the pro’s tackle 
and gear, and learn fishing tactics, boat control and how to use 
electronics.  The fish they catch together count for both partners.  The 
Mercury Top Amateur, Tom Gonya, Toledo, Ohio, will represent all amateurs at 
the Championship, competing against the top 50 pro anglers.  He finished 
first on Saginaw Bay and added a fourth and a ninth for a record division 
score by any amateur in PWT history.

    Championship fishing takes place on the Missouri River below Bismarck.  
Contestants trailer their fish to the Civic Center and weigh them to the 
cheers of thousands of walleye fans.  The winner nets a $100,000 first 
prize.  Last year’s winner Mike Gofron, Antioch, Ill will be competing.  A 
Sport and Boat show takes place in the adjacent Exhibit Hall.  Plenty of 
youth activities are scheduled, including special handouts to the kids, 
including 1,000 Pinnacle/Silstar rod and reel combinations on Saturday, 
Sept. 14.

    More information about the contestants, along with photos, can be found on 
the PWT web site, www.professionalwalleyetrail.com.  The 2003 schedule with 
dates and sites is also posted.

    The PWT is part of The In-Fisherman Communications Network and PRIMEDIA,
