Buechel Goes Wire to Wire
Jesse Buechel went wire to wire throughout the Akaska South Dakota Walleye Classic to take his first Major tournament win with a CRR total of 95.56 pounds. Jesse cashed a check for $30,000.00.
Jesse was working an area not too far from the launch trolling cranks, and said onstage the key was moving as slow as possible; in fact, even stalling his boards out to a near stop to trigger the larger ‘eyes to take his crankbait. He also rode the Bull at the Festival rodeo here in Akaska last night for the second year in a row, taking somewhat of a calculated risk at injury despite leading the event going into the final day.
Chase Parsons put three solid days together to CRR a total of 79.83 to take second and a check for $10,333.00. He was working higher in the water column than many of his competitors, and was ‘contour trolling’, a technique requiring extreme boat control as the lures are trolled precisely along the contour lines holding the targeted walleyes.
Jarrad Fluekiger improved his position in the very close JJ Keller Fishing team Angler of the Year race by CRRing 79.61 pounds for third, just ounces behind Chase Parsons. Fourth went to Bruce ‘Doc’ Samson, who proclaimed this morning, ” I won’t be in fifth when I come in today!”
Fifth went to Robert Blosser, who won the green Bay event recently, and is also a contender in the Angler of the year race. Joe Okada, one of the hottest young Pros on the Circuit, took sixth. Seventh went to Jason Przekurat, eighth to Michael Mcmaken, ninth to South Dakota Pro Rick Olson, and rounding out the top ten was local Guide and South Dakota Pro Chad Schilling.
