The monkey is finally off my back and i've gotten back into the winner's circle! I just won the FLW Walleye Tour event on the Mississippi River out of Red Wing, MN this past weekend. Even though it hasn't fully sunken in yet, it is a feeling that money cannot buy. To beat so many good anglers is truly gratifying.
I can only credit having a good game plan (trolling leadcore for good saugers and rigging for big walleyes), precise boat control (I've cashed a check in every tournament that I've had my new Lund fiberglass boat), and being a versatile angler (trolling and rigging) to the success.
I found some nice saugers while trolling Wally Divers and Shad Raps with Leadcore line along 20 foot edges near points in Lake Pepin. I also caught several of my bigger fish right on the tips of the points with bottom bouncers and Lindy Rigs with a half crawler in 30 feet of water.
Very exciting! I appreciate everyone putting up with my forgetfulness while preparing for this tournament. I'm pumped!
