The wind did indeed blow today out of the South West as forecast, and Green Bay kicked up accordingly. 4 of the top 5 were fishing the deeper water off the Shark Fin, using drift bags and more to keep the speed down.
Robert Blosser fished the east shore on a rock structure that features a ‘spot on the spot’, which produced his day three weight of 44.80, enough for the win by over 5 pounds at 139.46, collecting a check for $30,000.00. Jim Carroll took second with today’s weight of 37.96 and a total weight of 134 pounds.
The Bay kicked out some very big fish this year, in stark contrast to last year’s bite that was damaged by a strong North wind blowing cold water into the area. This week, the weather was prefect to set up the bite; warm and sunny with winds from the South. John Schneider had a very rough time keeping his fish pinned up, but managed to CRR 128.24 for third place. Perennial Top Ten finisher Mike Gofron weighed in 127.87 for fourth, and Jim Petersen took fifth with 127.02. This one truly was a game of ounces!
Keith Kavajecz took sixth, Todd Riley seventh, Pat Neu eighth, Rick Olsen ninth, Perry Good tenth, Ted Takasaki eleventh, Ryan Jirik twelfth, and Mark Martin rounded out the pros in the money at thirteenth.
Big walleyes ruled the event, coming from deep, shallow, and in between. Spinners and crawlers and trolling cranks were the winning techniques; make sure you watch the AIM Top Ten Rewind at http://www.aimfishing.com to learn the where, what, when, and how the top ten caught their winning walleyes.
