The Kapuskasing River Walleye Tournament held August 8-9 proved to be another year of challenges and successes for participating anglers!
The weekend provided 2 great days of tournament fishing with anglers blasting down the Kapuskasing River to reach the hotspots – both the popular and the secret ones. A tour down the river showed groups of anglers in areas that have historically produced quality fish.
After the first day of fishing, only 4 anglers managed to break the 10-pound weight. Leading the pack were the teams of:
1.Marc Lebreton / Steve Hooper with 15.83 lbs
2.Jeremy Kancir / Jacques Bernard with 14.64 lbs
3.Paul Godin / Genevieve Godin with 12.73 lbs
Day 2 brought on another chance for anglers to move up the rankings into the money and maybe even the win. But consistency in netting quality fish paid off for 2 of the first day’s top 3 anglers, and for another team, Day 2’s heaviest bag of fish allowed them to jump to 3rd place!
In the end, it was the team that managed to put together 2 consistent days of fishing to take the win by just over 2 pounds – congratulations to the father-daughter team of Paul and Genevieve Godin of Moonbeam on bringing home the trophy and the first place prize of $10,000! Their winning weight was 26.09 pounds.
Rounding out the top 3 are:
◾Jeremy Kancir / Jacques Bernard (23.9 lbs)
◾Cody Lincez / Mike Wendell (23.07 lbs)
Congratulations to the KRWT committee on another successful event!
