Cabela’s Masters Walleye Circuit angler Bryan Gaikowski of Watertown, South Dakota, awoke to find himself the victim of a classic practical joke Sept. 16 during prefishing for the MWC’s Western Division season finale in Webster, South Dakota.

Sometime during the previous night, another angler-who wishes to remain anonymous-filled Gaikowski’s 620 Ranger with foam packing peanuts. Reportedly, it was retribution for a prank Gaikowski pulled several years ago by unhooking the angler’s trailer from his truck-a trick that wasn’t discovered until the unwitting angler reached the boat landing without his boat.

Though the payback was genius, it didn’t stop Gaikowski for long. After an hour or more of serious peanut-picking, he was out fishing on Waubay Lake. The tournament, which runs Sept. 18-19 and is presented by Fishouflage, offers more than $45,000 in payouts, team of the year awards, sponsor contingencies and big-fish prizes.
