    Fargo Pro Tom Backer Takes PWT
                        Tournament Lead in South Dakota

        Chamberlain, South Dakota....With the Gander Mountain heavyweight catch of  the Lund/Miller Western Pro-Am, Tom Backer, Fargo, North Dakota, moved into  the lead with 25.81 pounds.  His second day catch weighed 13.86 pounds.  The  3-day In-Fisherman Professional Walleye Trail (PWT) format means the full  field of 155 pros and amateurs compete for the $250,000 purse one more day,  Friday, May 10.

        Backer only had six bites, but converted each one to the net despite strong 
    winds of 15 to 35 mph.  Waves built to five feet high in areas, with most 
    anglers seeking calmer seas in their “secondary” spots.  Patience was the 
    key for the top anglers, including Kim “Chief” Papineau, Escanaba, Michigan, 
    with 23.7 pounds; Gil Mollet, Jefferson, South Dakota, with 23.24 pounds; 
    Rich Mealey, Westerville, Ohio, 23.19 pounds; and Gary “Mr. Walleye” Roach, 
    Merrifield, Minnesota, with 21.42 pounds.  Day one leader, Scott Handel, 
    Chamberlain, looked at the wind and opted to fish an alternate spot, but 
    with four fish, dropped to 29th place.

        Amateurs fish three days; each day with a different pro, for a combined 
    boat-weight.  Amateurs fish for a first-prize of a $15,000 Lund/Mercury boat 
    package. The winning pro earns $50,000.  The top 45 amateurs and pros win 
    cash and/or merchandise.  The leading amateur is Steve Anderson, Lincoln, 
    Nebraska.  He drew Backer today.  They also landed the Miller High Life Big 
    Fish of the day, a 5.54-pounder, worth at least $1,000.  The largest of the 
    tournament was caught yesterday by Mitch Howe, Billings, Montana.  It 
    weighed 5.82 pounds.

        One-third of the contestants caught limits both days.  The PWT limit of six 
    walleyes or saugers, in conformance with state regs, means all fish must be 
    from 15 to 18 inches, with two over 18 inches.  A total of 1,377 fish came 
    to the scales through the first two days, and 87 percent were successfully 

        The final weigh-in occurs at Cedar Shore Marina starting about 3 p.m. 
    Friday, and walleye fans are invited to this scenic Chamberlain and Oacoma 
    setting.  On the final day, pros reveal their favorite tactics, boat control 
    methods, hotspots and secrets.
