The Full Throttle Walleye Championship took place on the Mississippi River pools 3 and 4 on Oct. 8th, 2011. Two time Full Throttle Champions Brett King and Jeff Holz won the event again this year as well as last. Brett said the key was to hit a lot of spots and credited his Mercury Pro XS for running about 40 miles in the event. The team brought 3 really nice walleyes to the scale, which weighed 15.86lbs and included the big walleye at 7.81lbs.
Tommy Skarlis and Jeff Loer who hold the all time weight record for Full Throttle tournaments came in 2nd place with 14.51lbs. Be sure to check out Tommy Skarlis planking on the front of his Ranger Boat during blast off at www.FTfishing.com . Too funny!!!
Our Friday night dinner meeting included a spaghetti dinner, salad, and homemade dessert homemade by the ladies at New River Assembly of God Church. Our speakers at the Championship were Tom Brunz, Dan Christensen, and Tommy Skarlis.
