Deerfield, OH—May 8, 2016—The team of Marion Erb and Colin Murphy get the right bite to win Walleye Madness Tournaments second event of the year. The one day team tournament featured some of the top inland walleye anglers battling for thousands in cash and prizes. On what was a very tough bite for most anglers, Erb and Murphy bagged a limit of 5 fish for 16.75lbs.
“We keyed in on main lake willows in 3-5 feet of water” said Murphy. Erb added “We stuck to our game plan the whole day and kept working the same areas.”
The winners used a combo of 1/8th jig heads tipped with night crawlers and Berkley Gulp. Looking for willows that were green seem to hold baitfish the walleye were feeding on.
The duo cashes in with a total of $2150, with a $1750 first place plus top Lund Boat honors good for $300. They also tied for on Buckeye Sports Center Big Fish of the day for $100.
The father and son team of Adam and Carl Momirov finished second with 12.90lbs. Adam and Carl worked willows with jig and worm combos also. Gold and pink jigheads seemed to work the best in Berlins stained water. The Momirov’s collected $850 plus $200 Mercury Marine bonus for the highest finishing boat equipped with a Mercury outboard. Jim Gwynn and Matt Whitacre took 3rd with 7.45lbs. Jim and Matt worked the north end of the lake using jig and worm. Sam Cappelli and Ted Jackson claimed 4th place with 6.45lbs. Chris Bradway and Trevor Eash round out the top 5 using jig and minnow combo.
