Korpela & Adkins Win PMTT Musky Hunter Fall Meltdown.
Tournament Director,
Tim Widlacki

Bad weather and poor fishing conditions seems to be the theme this year at each of the qualifying tournaments this year and the PMTT Musky Hunter Magazine Fall Melt Down event on the Detroit River this past weekend was no exception. Heavy down pours of rain all night long before and all the way through day one of the tournament made for some very tough fishing, followed by high skies and mostly sunny conditions with high winds made day two of the tournament even tougher yet. After it was all done 8 teams caught 10 fish with two teams doubling.

The team of Ross Korpela and John Adkins both from MN. came up with a game plan because of a bad hand. Because of a work related injury to Adkins hand that almost kept him out of the tournament, they decided he would work a bondy bait, a large jigging type bait off the weed breaklines on the shipping channel. While Adkins worked the bottom in the fourteen to twenty two foot depths, Korpela cast bucktails up on the weedflats.

While bumping the black bondy bait off the bottom they caught a mix bag of walleye, bass and muskies. They boated a 40.25 & 44 muskies to give them big fish award for day one along with the first place check and hardware to take home.

Greg Thomas and Dave Grochowski, one of the top producing teams throughout the years on the PMTT, after getting blanked on day one of the tournament, decided to troll perch colored legend crankbaits in the shipping channels one hundred and fifty feet back and twenty two feet down to make contact and bounce the bottom. It paid off big as they boated a 37.25 & 44.50 which was also big fish for day two. Their decision to change areas and to troll paid off as they took home the second place hardware.

Third place goes to another top producer over the years on the trail in Kevin Selders and Mike Money, who were trolling shallow weeds with bulldawgs and boated a 40.75 fish. The were also the winners of the Ranger Cup award. Fourth place honors go to the team of Mark & David Filas who caught a 39.50 musky on a bucktail casting shallow weedbeds. Filling out the top five was Kevin Hopfensperger and Pam Leopold who caught a 39 fish from shallow weeds casting crane twitch baits.
