Green Bay Team Wins Lowrance Electronics MWC Tournament 
Held On Bay of Green Bay While Other Teams Are Pulled From The Water.

2001 MWC Oconto tournament Winners Oconto, WI - A persistent bite on Saturday and Sunday helped Carl Grunwaldt
(Green Bay, WI) and Don Ertman (Green Bay, WI) win the Lowrance Electronics
- Masters Walleye Circuit Tournament and take home a check for $ 10, 000.00. The catch and release tournament was held on The Bay of Green Bay. 
Grunwaldt and Ertman  (pictured above) were in third place on Saturday weighing 21.24 pounds of walleyes (including a 0.4 pound penalty for unreleaseable fish). With less than 2 pounds separating them from the first place team the Green Bay team wanted to able to weigh a full basket of four fish on the second day.
Grunwaldt and Ertman were able to weight four more fish on Sunday to win the
tournament. They were helped in part by the weather.
When the boats left to start their fishing for Sunday, the Bay was very calm
with no wind. But around noon, things changed. The wind came up producing
better than 6-foot rollers. Meanwhile, many teams were savoring the calm
conditions well south of Oconto. But when it came time to return they discovered the difficult conditions in getting back to Oconto. As a result,
there were a record number of late boats. Some teams lost half their weight
for the day while others lost the full day of fishing.

Those same conditions caused several teams to lose their small kicker engines, one team to lose their big primary engine requiring Coast Guard assistance and another boat to swamp when their main engine died.

Dale Jessogne and Tom Schlief, both of Wisconsin, were trying to get back
through the swells when they heard a mayday call on their marine band radio
(A new requirement this year in the MWC). It was Team 20, Jeff Zawicki and
Tom Sowinski also of Wisconsin. They were in the water several miles out
from shore. Their engine had died. The waves had swamped their boat. While
Zawicki and Sowinski hung on through the pounding waves, Jessogne and
Schlief reversed course. Plowing through the 6-foot waves at high speed they
were able to find the two water-logged anglers and return them safely to the
weigh in site.

Jessogne and Schlief placed 14th with no penalty assessed for being late.

Coming in second was the team of Ed Shoenecker (Slinger, WI) and Steve
Balliu (Antioch, IL) with 43.20 pounds of walleyes and received $ 5,500.00
in winnings.
The third place team of Richard Nascak and Brad Kaczorowski, both of Winona
Minnesota weighed 41.04 pounds of fish. They received a check for $3,000.00.

The Oconto Sportsmen's Club also received a check for $ 1,220 from Wildlife
Forever. The money will be used to reinforce shoreline along the Oconto
River and prevent erosion.
