 Season Opener

Downriver Classic
The Detroit River hosted the Michigan Walleye Tour April 18-19 in what would turn out to be the largest tournament thus far in the tour's four year existence.  I I 8 teams competed for approximately $13,500,00 in cash, prizes and bragging rights.  Mother nature was much more cooperative although a lot of the huge females the Detroit river is known for had spawned out.Saturday brought sun, 60 degrees and flat water, Leaders after day one were the team of Petrucco and Rahn with 35.25 pounds, Second place after day one was Jobnson/Sowards with 34,80.  Lots of fish were taken to the scales but few 9-10 pounders.  Big fish on Saturday was a 10.5 hawg wrestled in by the team Petrucco/Rahn winning $100,00 contributed by sponsor Trenton Lighthouse Bait & Tackle of Trenton NMSunday brought clouds and a north east chop which of course speeds up the current and changes  some tactics.  When the scales were packed up Sunday afternoon the winners didn't have to worry about where the fishing poles were stored, Local team Joe Gorris and Mike Zielinski Jr, took top honors handling mostly Canadian waters.  Their total of 62,90 pounds beat second place team of Jones/Marple by seven pounds and a final weight of 55.70, Jones/Marple were jigging and running in both Canadian and American sides of the river.  Big fish of the tournament t was a 10,85 monster caught by the team Kanoza/Kolb winning a $100.00 contributed by local sponsor Mr. Minnow Bait and Tackle of Rockwood, MI. and another $100.00 gift certificate from Tournament totals include 803 fish weighing 3,050 pounds, A 3.79 pound average, There were plenty on six and seven pounders brought in, This is expected in a year with an early spawn and water temps nearing the mid 50's.  One ofthe more interesting things to note was how the economy has affected the tournament scene this year.  Lots of brand new walleye rigs showed up in every design and of course fully rigged.  If one really wants to see a boat show, come to a weigh in, It makes every boat show in the state seem small in comparison and there are no sales pitches to deal withl Another aspect related to a bootwng econo y is the number of sponsors.  Major tournament sponsor like  boatsand major sponsors like , Dodge, Gander Mountain,  and Autohelm Apelco to associate sponsors like Aero Communications, Tite Lok, and Boaters World are important to the tour.  There are many more but space limits us.  They will get mentions throughout this year.  This of course does not include the individual sponsorships teams have acquired.  It looks like the best season yet and there is always plenty of room for teams.  The next MWT will take place on Houghton Lake May 30-3 1.
