Pueblo Walleye Tournament Recap

CWA Pueblo Recap

On behalf of the CWA, a big thank you goes out to Canon Marine, who was the premier sponsor for the Pueblo tournament! The Colorado Walleye Association held the walleye tournament in conjunction with the Cabela’s MWC tournament at Pueblo Reservoir. The tournament started Friday, May 17th, with a total of 38 teams aimed to bring that big bag of fish in, along with that big fish to help them out! Since there was 38 teams in this event, the payout was up to the top 8 teams, with first place EACH day bringing in $684!

Day 1 was HOT and had very little wind or cloud cover to help the anglers out. Pretty much everyone was catching fish, but getting them 18 inches or bigger proved to be a monumental hill to get over, and for some luck and skill were on their side as they limited out. Launch and boat inspections started at 5 AM, and take off was at 6 AM sharp! Anglers were due back at 3:00 and 3:15 each day. Day 1 also provided some awesome weights, with the top weight being just over 13 lbs, and 8th place was still over 10 lbs! Big fish honors went to Brad Petersen and Geff Werning, with a nice 4 pound 9 ounce walleye! Below are your top 8 teams for day 1!

6 Petersen/Werning 19 4.56 11.25
7 Hix/Jones 35 11.19
8 Ianiro/Stebbins Jr. 25 10.69

 

After weigh in the CWA held a Pizza Party at the pavilion to give out day 1 awards, door prizes and a chance for anglers to relax and unwind, while talking about new strategies and what happened on the water. We would like to give a big THANK YOU to our sponsors who provided raffle giveaways and prizes at the Friday night dinner: Reef Runner, Yellow Bird Products, Reel Bait, Smoking Jigs, Johnson Outdoors/Hummingbird, and Cabelas. Here are some pictures to kind of recap day 1.

Day 2 started out just the same as Day 1, with the exception of cooler temps, and a stiffer breeze with some cloud cover. Once again anglers brought in some nice fish, and nice limits for weigh in! Big fish for day two was a solid 7 lbs 9 ounces! Day 2 winners were Chad Kiefer and Mark Schoning, who also got big fish, with a whopping 18 pound 12 ounce bag! Coming in at 2nd was Mike Williams and Justin Crump with a weight of 13 pounds 2 ounces. Placing 3rd was Bill Ianiro and Rich Stebbbins Jr. with 12 pounds 6 ounces. There was a 2 way tie for 5th, which both places payouts are added together and split. There was a 3 way tie for 8th place, and the 3 teams decided to draw from a hat to decide the 8th place winner, instead of splitting it 3 ways. Eric Ewing, and Chris Augustyn won the pick! Below the picture grid are the top 8 for day 2!
