“Walleye guys” made their presence known at the Sturgeon Bay Open bass tourney
last weekend on Lake Michigan’s Sturgeon Bay in Door County, WI. A pile of ’em finished high in the standing against a stacked 125-boat field.
How? Gary Parsons summed it up nicely:
> “You put a green largemouth in front of us, we all get scared…but smallies are almost walleyes.”
Lol touche man!
Korey Sprengel and Adam Neu were leading after day 1 with a 29.15-lb [!] sack of bronze. Caught throwing the same bait he used to win the Winnebago NWT — a “chameleon pearl” Berkley Cutter 90 Shallow:
Walleye-nuts Robert Blosser and Joe Okada finished 2nd overall with a 2-day bag of 51.47 lbs…dang near a 5.15-lb average on 10 fish!
Chase and Gary Parsons were slingin’ tubes, piling up 51.42-lbs of smalljaw for 3rd:
Mark Courts and Scott Walsh were in 2nd after day 1 and finished 11th overall with a 2-day bag of 48.56 lbs:
Willing to bet you wouldn’t see those same kinda results if the situation was reversed…would almost feel bad throwing a handful of bassin’ pros into a 125-boat walleye derby….
