35 Years To Get To The Top In Mercury Marine National Walleye Tournament


Tim and Dave Theder of Watertown won the Mercury Marine National Walleye Tournament in Fond du Lac this weekend catching nearly 41 (40.96) pounds of fish between them during the two days of the tournament. For Tim Theder it was a long wait to take the top spot in the tournament, 35 years. Dave Theder says they had some challenges on the windy day. He says the seat he used broke and their windshield cracked, but they still made it to where they wanted to go. They won the first place prize of $13,000. It was a windy day, which held down the fishing success, but Mercury President John Pfeifer says anglers always have some challenges to overcome in a tournament. Matt Jacobson of Fremont and Jim Hughes of Oshkosh took second place with a total of just under 37 pounds (36.98) of fish. Altogether 285 teams participated in the tournament Saturday and Sunday.  

Walleyes for Tomorrow got a nice check from Mercury Marine for $4,500.
