Fishermen battle weather for big money
SPRING VALLEY — The fish weren’t cooperating with anglers Saturday as Spring Valley hosted the first tournament of the 2013 Cabela’s Masters Walleye Circuit. Luckily for winners Clayton Freiberger and Mike Bisdorf of Iowa, Sunday was more in line with the fish’s schedule as they took home a $16,000 grand prize, a $1,375 prize for having the biggest fish and $2,000 in additional awards.
The winning catch included 18.15 pounds of walleye with the big fish weighing in at 3.5 pounds.
Ladd’s Ryan Vecchia and Bill Elliot of Spring Valley finished a close second with a haul of 18.01 pounds. The rest of the top five included father and son team of Mark Hoster and Doug Hoster in third (16.02), Dave Kleszyk and Dave Zurawski placed fourth (14.03), and another father and son team, Thomas Giachetto and Tom Giachetto Jr. of Ladd placed fifth (13.02).
