New York Mills, Minn. – Lund® Boats, legendary manufacturer of aluminum and fiberglass fishing boats, announced today that Lund professional anglers have swept the top three spots in the recent Leech Lake Walleye Tournament. Held Saturday, June 4 through Sunday, June 5, the tournament took place in Walker, Minn.
The teams of Chuck Hasse and Randy Topper took first place, Dylan Maki and Joe Bricko took second and Sean Colter and Dave Hernesman came in third. In addition, five other Lund teams landed in the top twenty. The team of Hasse and Topper finished the event with a total bag of walleye measuring just over 48-inches to take home the $15,400 prize.
The tournament was a two-day event that included 155 boats and 310 anglers. Anglers were required to fish in teams of two, take pictures of the fish and take a video showing the live release of the fish. Walleye tournaments have been a tradition on Leech Lake for over 25 years. The entire Leech Lake community has strongly supported tournaments over the years with dozens of volunteers working to make them a success.
“We are so pleased to see so many of our pro team successfully competing in this exciting event,” says Ryan Sproule, Pro-Staff and Special Events Coordinator, Lund Boats. “We have always supported professional and amateur anglers alike and this tournament is a fun way for them to show off their skills. We’d like to congratulate Chuck and Randy and all of our top-class anglers.”
