World Walleye Association (WWA) held its third Illinois qualifying tournament Sunday June 23rd. The team of NPAA member# 470, James McDonald (Grayslake, IL) and Ross Hosking (Hainsville, IL) took top honors with a five fish basket of 16.76 lbs that included a big fish of 6.18 lbs. While the trolling bite seemed to produce lots of fish for most of the teams, McDonald and Hosking fished live bait under slip bobbers in shallow water and stayed busy culling fish most of the tournament day.
