Congratulations and THANKS to all 104 teams that fished the MWS Upper Winnebago tournament.
The winds were light this year nothing like last years brutal all day winds. The sun was out all day with comfortable temperatures throughout the day. The fish cooperated with many teams boating as many as fifty fish however to get the larger walleye proved to be a challenge. Success varied from early to all day. Eighty five teams weighed a five fish limit. There was a total of 452 fish caught weighing a total of 1037.9#. Only three teams did not weigh fish and one had fish.
The team of Louie Apitz and Scott Hausauer took first place with five fish weighing 17.92# winning them $5,100. Second place went to the team of Jeremy Thull and Matt Bongert with five fish totaling 17.50# for $2,700.
