Napanee, Ontario, Canada May 16th, 2010â€“ As the walleye tournament season moved in to full swing on the world renowned walleye capital of the world; Bay of Quinte, NPAA members Grant McAllister #517, Gary Hodge #518 and Jamie Stothart #541 made a splash by sealing the deal in their professional debut at the Quinte Walleye Open! The team weighed a 3 fish limit of 18.47lbs, beating out their nearest competitors by a mere 1lb!
The G2 team also managed to take the Big Fish prize with a post spawn beauty that weighed 7.89lbs! â€œGoing in to this, we spent countless hours developing a game plan. We stuck to it and didnâ€™t waiver! We knew the big fish were still in the recoup mode and it would be a tough bite but we â€œthrough â€˜em the curveâ€ and came out on top! Reef Runner Little Rippers in tandem with Offshore snap weights were the ticket to our success today; says McAllister. With the use of our top notch electronics from our friends at Radioworld, we knew that getting those baits down in to the strike zone was key, as our 2 big fish came from running that pattern. The kicker fish and undoubtedly, the most important fish, came off a Northland Mr. Walleye Crawler Hauler. We were running the 3 Rippers on Offshore boards when we spotted some big hooks on bottom. We brought in one of the cranks, dropped down the Hauler and bouncer and within 30 seconds; FISH ON; a 4.7lber! All of this took place with 30 minutes left in the tournament!!
Thatâ€™s the fish that won us our first tournament; said an elated Gary Hodge. â€œWeâ€™ll remember this for the rest of our lives!â€
