Steve and I were caught off guard a little in the first tourney, and decided to spend more time on the water for our next event, the Midwest Walleye Series. Steve and I both fished separately on Friday and Saturday prior to the tournament, and had great success both days catching some nice post-spawn female Walleyes.
We chimed in with the other boats and continued to watch the boats land big fish after big fish while we couldn't seem to buy a bite! This became quite frustrating quickly, but we ground it out and caught one here. This bite seemed to die for everyone, so we decided to try one other spot with only 40 minutes left to fish. This turned out to be the best move we made all day, as we landed 4 fish in 40 minutes and had to head to the weigh-in.
We ended up taking 4th place with a weight of 14.72 pounds. We were both amazed at our finish, considering how tough of a day we had, and how we were able to salvage a top 5 finish in the last 40 minutes! Walleyes continue to amaze me, just when I think I have them figured out, they throw me a curveball again!
