KRWT 2016 Champions – Jason and Andrea Robichaud.

KRWT 2016 Champions – Jason and Andrea Robichaud.

The Town of Kapuskasing hosted 107 focused teams for the 2015 Kapuskasing River Walleye Tournament.  The Sports Palace greeted all anglers with food, drink and fish-talk as registration packages were picked up and tournament rules reviewed.

Friendships were put on hold once the starting horn sounded Saturday morning.  Boaters raced through the river hoping to hit the hotsports before the others.  Day 1 put targets on the backs of the top finishers, but everyone knows – tournaments aren’t won on the first day!

With a weight of 7.41 lbs, the tournament winners barely made the top 40, and eyes were on the top team of the day – Dany and Roger Vienneau with their weight of 13.70 lbs.  Only about 3 lbs separated the leaders from the top 10.

On day 2, the team of Jason and Andrea Robichaud of Kapuskasing weighed in a whopping 16.16 lbs of golden fish giving them the day’s heaviest bag, propelling them to the top of the leaderboard for the day and the weekend (23.57 lbs)!

The weekend’s top 10:

  1. Jason Robichaud/Andrea Robichaud
  2. Gaetan Dorval/Steve Dorval
  3. Dany Vienneau/Roger Vienneau
  4. Derick Brooks/Guy Laberge
