Mobridge Ice Tourney Results
Mobridge, SD…Cold, cold, cold proved to be the toughest elements the 296 anglers had to face during the 6th Annual Mobridge Ice Fishing Tournament. Below zero temps and a little wind to add, made fishing outside and staying mobile a challenge.
Anglers fought the battle and won. Around 450 walleyes weighing over 750lbs were brought to the scales. Last year an abundant shad population that staged in the area, made catching walleyes a little tough. This year the shad made their way to a different location on Lake Oahe, which made the fishing fantastic as it has been during the hard water season.
Anglers had 40 miles of shoreline to fish, which made finding a place quite easy. The only difficult task was finding active walleyes. Anglers were allowed to weigh in 6 fish with two of those being 20 inches or over. The rest had to be under 20 inches. Finding slot fish was a difficult task for most of the field.
When it was all said and done, Vern and Shannon Grismer took the title weighing 6 fish at 21.13lbs. In second was the team of Nick Fosnes and Greg Gohring with 16.78 lbs. Third was Leonard Glines and Amber Olson with 16.04 and in 4th were the local boys of Levi Duncun and Quinton Schlomer with 15.56 lbs.
Hats off to the Mobridge Chamber of Commerce Tourism Committee and all the anlgers who helped to make this years tourney another success.
