Wind snags second day of fishing tourney

Though Friday conditions cut the Sturgeon Bay Walleye tournament short by a day, one angler got to take home a $93,000 prize. The tournament’s second day was canceled and award presentations started early after high winds called for a small craft advisory. Thursday also brought nasty conditions, but Gary Nault, a fishing guide who also helps put on the tournament, said it didn’t hold up the walleye catching because they like the rough weather. He did say that the weather had an effect on the ride. 



On the one day of the tournament, a past champion reclaimed their crown. Danny Woodke of Green Bay won the tournament with a weigh-in of 39.44 lbs. His co-angler this year was Trevor Parsons of Stockbridge. Woodke took home a purse totaling $93,022. The tournament is part of the National Walleye Tour.  Full results can be found here.
