Brookville Lake – August 9, 2020 – Crossroads Walleye Trail (www.crossroadswalleye.com) embarked on their first ever Brookville Lake walleye tournament this past Sunday.

However, it was Connorsville, IN father and son team Luke & Mark Isaacs that were crowned the champions of the August 9th event. Luke and Mark weighed in 3 of 5 walleye for 12.38lbs! They also won the “big fish” prize with a 5.51 Brookville Lake walleye! Luke & Mark made a clean sweep of the event and also earned a sidepot bid at the Bass Pro Shops / Cabela’s National Team Championship in 2021. Second place went to Rushville, IN brother team Mike & Bobby Chandler who brought in 6.88lbs. Third place was captured by Brookville, IN team Leroy Arvin & Matt Brennan. See the full results below.
Founded in 2019, Crossroads Walleye Trail, LLC (CWT) is a sanctioned club member of national organization The Walleye Federation. Wanting to build something fresh with a focus on its club members and state level walleye biology, CWT’s founding members set out to create a club that offers a new option to anglers throughout Indiana and the Midwest region. “We are dedicated to professionalism, great camaraderie, and exceptional competition,” says PR Director, Joey Buttram.
