                              Pelican Spring Classic Tournaments
                                                    By Lisa Gibson

As the sun started to peek over the trees, the first fishing team entered the west access of Pelican Lake to start off
the Spring Classic. It was a cool morning with a light breeze on land, but on the water was very chilling. The
teams darned themselves with wind resistance bibs & jackets, sweatshirts and caps. The day would prove to be
challenging as the wind would continue to increase, and changing weather patterns would move into the lake
area affecting the fishing over the tournament’s duration.

This year’s Pelican Spring Classic Tournament was record setting. The combination of average size fish and the
total number of fish caught resulted in 1405 lbs of fish crossing the scales, surpassing previous tournaments
dating back to 1995. The average sized fish was 1.91 pounds which is the 5th overall in terms of the size of each
fish. With 737 fish caught, it seemed this year's tournament would be one for the record books.

On top of the leader board for the first day were teams; Ken Weiss/Brad Weiss 17.95 lbs, Dale Gnoinsky/Scott
Rieber 17.28, Dave Tufte/Tony Stetz 17.01, Ron Wagner/Wayne Johnson 14.88, and Jamie Kinslow/Kim
Kinslow 14.80.

Day two proved to be a bit more challenging in finding the fish, however, the winning team of Dave Tufte and
Tony Stetz prevailed with a 29.47 lbs combined weight, which is the 5th highest weight in tournament history.
This win would earn the team a $2,200 pay check. Closely following the team of Tufte/Stetz were Jamie
Kinslow/Kim Kinslow, 28.91lbs. and $1,400; Ron Wagner/Wayne Johnson 28.04 lbs and $1015; Fred
Sanchez/Chris Roehl 27.77 lbs and $925; and Ken Weiss/Brad Weiss 27.04 lbs. and $825. Big fish awards went
to teams; Ken Wiess/Brad Weiss with an 8.78 lb fish; Rod Ambuehl/Matt Morrisey with a 7.10 lb fish; & Jon
Wiser/Rob Bahr with a 6.34 pound fish. Team 103 Jake Nelson/Josh Jensen started the tournament with sponsor
J&K Marine replacing the water pump delaying their start by two hours. They brought in the second biggest
basket on day two to finish in the money at 13th place. Thank you Tim Sweeney for being on site to keep the
competitors equipment up to the task!

One of the team partners, Ron Wagner said, “I have been participating in this tournament for 4 to 5 years now,
and it’s a well run tournament. I am looking forward to the Fall Classic in September on Big Cormorant Lake.”
We hope to see you all out the YMCA camp this fall for what we hope will be another record breaking
tournament. Following the Fall Classic FM Walleyes will award the season points champion a boat-motor-trailer
combination.
