Donovan & Riebe Win PMTT Late Summer Bash on Chippewa Flowage!
PMTT Press Release Editor,
third event of the 2010 Professional Musky Tournament Trail took place on the
historical Chippewa Flowage this past weekend with 150 anglers competing in the
tournament. Weather conditions the weeks leading up to the tournament were very
rainy to say the least. The rainfall produced some of the highest water levels
in the flowages history.
Saturday was relatively nice with 80 degree air temperature with a cold front
approaching for Saturday night into Sunday. You could anticipate that someone
was going to get into them and get into them they did. There were a total of 28
muskies caught, 14 muskies caught on Saturday and 14 muskies caught on Sunday.
team of Scott Donovan and Chris Riebe both from Illinois found a small bay with
a cold water inlet pouring into it. This must have helped draw baitfish into the
bay which helped draw the muskies into the bay also. The two anglers caught 5
muskies that were 36, 39.25, 43.25, 43.50, and 45 inches. Their presentation was
Llungin Lures buck tails. The most incredible thing about their catch is that
the two did not catch a fish on Saturday. The two gentlemen caught all 5 fish in
one day on Sunday which was a first for any team to catch that many fish on day
2 in a PMTT event!
team that pulled through with the win is no stranger to winning tournaments. The
two anglers were the prestigious top team (top Gun) on the PMTT in 2009. The two
savvy anglers took home the first place trophy and also a check for $10,880.
went out to Scott Kieper and Guy Mittlestadt of Stone Lake, WI... Their
presentation consisted of throwing heavy Bulldogs over deep water structure with
baitfish. Kieper said that the anglers had to make their lures stick out from
the baitfish. In turn this means working the bait very violently to get the
fishes attention. This paid off for the two anglers who also caught the
big fish of the day award with a 43.25” caught on Saturday.
went out to Tom Olsen of Northern Illinois and Tanner Wildes local musky fishing
guide of Hayward, Wisconsin. Their muskies were 34 and 45.25 inches in length.
The two anglers used a presentation of cowgirl buck tails in weeds in flame
went out to Jeff and Joe Anderson from Baxter and St. Cloud, Minnesota
respectfully. A 40 and 37.75 inch muskies fell to this teams bait presentation.
They chose casting depth raider crank baits to the deep edge of the weeds where
it changed to rock making sure they were contacting the bottom with their lure
as they retrieved it.
Fifth Place was
taken by Del Colvin of Essex, IL and Jeff Kozlowski of Lemont, IL. The two
anglers caught and released a 47.25 inch flowage beauty caught on a mafia
spinner. The fish also made them the big Fish of the day winner for Sunday.
