VALLEY CITY, ND, April 10, 2008: The National Professional Anglers Association (NPAA), a non-profit organization focused on growing the sport of fishing and increasing the professionalism of its members, is proud to congratulate NPAA member Danny Plautz #315 and his mother, Barb Plautz on their 1st place finish at this year’s inaugural MWC tournament at Spring Valley.
New NPAA member Danny of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the son of veteran pro angler Dan Plautz , partnered with his mom Barb Plautz used a winning combination of NPAA supporting member Fin Tech’s Knuckle Ball Jigs tipped with NPAA supporting member Berkley’s 3″ power grubs and a live minnow while slipping the current in 14-16 feet.
Danny has been a member of the Pure Fishing Pro Staff since 2002 so needless to say, Pure Fishing products paid a key role in Danny and his mom’s success. Key to the win were 6′ Berkley Lighting rods with the new Cardinal 801 spinning reels, 8/3 Fireline Crystal with 15-18″ Vanish fluorocarbon leaders.
Having acquired his first major tournament win and having done it with his mom makes the win extra special. Danny feels that artificial baits will be playing a much larger role in all of his fishing presentations. His favorite “go-to” artificial baits are Power Bait grubs, Gulp Nightcrawlers, and Gulp Alive. For additional information on Danny and Barb’s winning combination go to www.masterswalleycircuit.com.
Congratulations again to Danny and Barb! The NPAA will be watching you closely when you participate in the first PWT Can-Am artificial’s only tournament as a member of Team USA.
