Warrior Boats Lake Minnewaska Fall Walleye Classic Sept. 6-7

1 post in this topic

Glenwood, MN---75 two-man teams will take to the water this Saturday-Sunday (Sept. 6-7) at Lake Minnewaska, for the 2008 Warrior Boats Lake Minnewaska Fall Walleye Classic. Who will win this year's Fall Walleye Classic is anyone's guess, but one team will go home on Sunday with the $6,000 guaranteed first place payout. For 11 of the 75 teams in this year's tournament, the first place payout could climb to as high as $13,500 and for 2 of those 11 teams, as high as $21,000 (with an additional $15,000 in Warrior Boats manufacturer / dealer contingency cash on the line).

"It's going to be really interesting to see how this year's tournament unfolds," said Fall Walleye Classic tournament director, Corey Bohn. "The field is stacked with a lot of good teams and it's going to be extremely competitive."

Kenny Neumann from Glenwood, MN, and Jack Greengo, from Alexandria, MN, (Team Depot Express) return as the defending 2007 champions, and according to Bohn, are considered to be a real threat to repeat in 2008. "In the past four years Kenny and Jack have finished fourth, second and first, so they're definitely a team that you would expect to be in the thick of things heading into Day 2," said Bohn. "When you look at the roster of teams, there are numerous teams who have won various titles throughout the region and in the Dakota's, so it's going to be extremely competitive."

"With three of the four past champions and 13 of the top 15 teams from last year in this year's field, it makes for a strong contingency of teams," Bohn continued. "Throw in the two-time MWT champions in Darrin Herd and Bryan Winterfeldt and a 2008 FLW Tour championship qualifier in Tony Renner, and it's about as competitive as it gets."

Tony and Charlie Renner (4th overall in 2007) return as the two-time defending Father/Son Division winners, as do last year's Husband/Wife Division winners, Jim and Dodi Huston (9th overall in 2007).

As stated by Bohn, 11 of the teams in this year's Fall Walleye Classic are eligible to win an additional $7,500 ($13,500 total) in manufacturer contingency cash as the original owners of a 2007 or newer Warrior Boat, and two of those 11 teams are eligible for another $7,500 in Warrior dealer contingency cash ($21,000 total) since the boat was purchased at Minnewaska Marine in Starbuck, MN (official contingency cash dealer) for the tournament.

Teams will begin fishing at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday, with the weigh-ins to begin at 3:30 p.m. at the Glenwood City Beach. The public is encouraged to attend the weigh-ins. As recently announced to the teams, the Fall Walleye Classic will be expanded in 2009 to include a Spring Walleye Classic on June 6-7 on the Alexandria, MN Chain of lakes. The 2009 Lake Minnewaska Fall Walleye Classic will be held on Sept. 12-13, 2009. Entry fee for each tournament is $350.

    • The name of the lake is long. It's between hawick and new London off hwy 23. East of Willmar. It's pretty clear water so your best bet  with eyes is early or late. Actually catch more eyes by accident fishin panfish.
    •   Not sure how the wife will like it, but it's kind of fun roughing it.  I know the area is pretty good for Bear's and Wolves!  And we do get a few Deer once in a while. The nice thing about being so far in, is the bait piles you can make! 
    •   With the 40 acres? Both hopefully. We still grouse hunt and deer hunt up there occasionally. There is a small cabin there but there is not a well or electricity. It is very primitive, but that's kind of what I like about it.
    • There are some pretty gnarly long roads and trails up in that area. I use to do some of them alone on 4 wheeler but not anymore. It's always nice to have a buddy with a wince along!  What are you guys thinking on doing with it hunting-camping?
    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
