Duluth Father and Son Team Win

Kolar Toyota Tourney

For Second Time

For Immediate release June 2, 2007

Hermantown, MN—Duluthians Eldin and Gary Hage took advantage of today’s rainy weather to win the Kolar Toyota ALS Walleye tournament for the second time. Their total weight of 12.61 pounds bested the runner-up team of Troy Skorich and John Swanstrom.

Today’s weather was similar to the last time the father and son combination won the tournament in 2005.

“It was very similar,” said Gary Hage, who has fished all 12 Kolar Toyota tournaments with his father Eldin. “I guess we do our best fishing when it’s raining.”

Skorich and Swanstrom, both of Superior, finished in second place in the tournament once before, in 1998. Four teams weight more than ten pounds of walleyes today on Island Lake, the first time in tournament history some many teams have boated more than ten pounds of fish.

“The weather wasn’t great,” said tournament director David Kolquist. “But the fishing sure was. And we raised a lot of money to fight ALS, whicc is the most important thing.”

Professional athletes Kent Hrbek, Jim Johnson, and Darby Hendrickson, hosted the one-day event.

Also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) is a fatal disease that affects more than 30,000 people in the United States and 300 in Minnesota. Thirteen new cases are diagnosed each day. Patients eventually become paralyzed, but their minds remain unaffected. Although there is currently no cure or treatment, research in recent years has made startling in-roads toward those ends. Dollars raised will not only go toward furthering this research, but also toward helping ALS patients here in the Northland.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
