Mike Woodard and Jack Dretsch of Frazee won second place of $1,500. third place went to Shawn Woodard and Neil Woodard of Frazee. Fourth place went to Chad Sonneberg and Scott Perala, also from Frazee. Marv Ruchti and Joe Wambach from Detroit Lakes took fifth.

Jack Dretsch caught the tournament's largest walleye weighing 6.29 lbs.

Congratulation's to all involved!

Gotta love the home town guys pulling out their first victory of fishing in it many years.

We weren't in the tournament but tried fishing Sunday afternoon after the tourney was over. Got a few eyes on red tails in 5-8ft of water. Didn't try out deep.

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.
