Cominsky, Wagner Take Walleye Madness Mosquito

Cortland, OH-May 21st 2017-Walleye Madness held its second event of the year on Mosquito Lake. Teams from Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania set out on a cool Sunday morning trying to find 5 fish to bring to the scales. Mosquito Lake is one of Ohio’s top inland lakes for catching walleyes.

Chase Cominsky and Charles Wagner captured first place with a weight of 11.80#. “All the hard work paid off for us today” Cominsky said. The team put many hours on the water pre-fishing to find the right bite which cashed them a total check of $1800 including finishing as the top Mercury Motors equipped boat. They focused on submerged weed beds, casting No. 7 Flickers shads in perch and silver.

 

Gary Gaca and Anthony Marcello brought in a bag of 11.53# for a 2nd place finish. Alan Ammon and Tim Bailey with a nice bag of 10.76# finished 3rd. Both teams were casting cranks near weeds. Adam Momirov and Ryan Cecil threw Northland Slurp jigheads tipped with Gulp minnows in the weeds for 4th place finish and rounding out the top 5 was Ian Cerpani and Rodney Dziak. Top Lund Boat honors went to Bob Mclucky and Brad Basinger good for $300. Rico Mixon and Marina Leydiker brought in the Buckeye Sports Center Big Fish with a monster 4.76# walleye for $200.

Fishing is Fun! in Nebraska 2017 Tournament Results

Fishing is Fun! in Nebraska 2017 tournament results

The Nebraska Walleye Association Kids Fishing Clinics Charity, Inc. sponsored four tournaments in 2017.  The first two were held at Calamus Reservoir near Burwell, NE. on June 24th & 25th. The last were held at Lewis & Clark Reservoir near Crofton, NE. on July 15th & 16th.

Two totally different types of fisheries and a change from late spring to summer patterns presented challenges for the tournament teams. On all days the winning teams used different presentations to overcome that.  However the team of Mike Woerth & Jim Paul were the combined two day winners for both events.

The overall top three team finishers after this four tournament format are: Mike Woerth & Jim Paul , Roger Sheckler & Ken Gewecke , and Ken Seffron & Ray Clayton.  Congratulations to these teams and they will be offered the opportunity to fish in the 2018 NTC on the Mississsippi River near Moline, Illinois!

This organization is a 501 (c) (3) public charity that promotes fishing education and conservation in Nebraska to over 2000 youth annually.  Fishing is Fun! is the catch phrase used to conduct 15-20 kids fishing clinics across the state.  Each participant receives hands on fishing instruction from state certified volunteers and is given a free rod/reel/tackle box combination to take fishing.  The only entry required to fish in these tournaments is to volunteer at the kids fishing clinic held at the tournament site.  At the Calamus Reservoir Clinic, 55 kids learned how to fish.  At the Lewis & Clark Reservoir Clinic, 35 kids learned how to fish. 

A big thanks to all who make: Fishing is Fun! in Nebraska.
