New York Mills, Minn. – Lund® Boats, legendary manufacturer of aluminum and fiberglass fishing boats, today announced that Lund professional anglers won the top three spots in the recent Leech Lake Walleye Tournament. Held from Saturday, June 4 through Sunday, June 5, the tournament took place in Walker, Minn.
Teams of Chuck Hasse and Randy Topper took first place, Dylan Maki and Joe Bricko took second, and Sean Colter and Dave Hernesman came in third. Additionally, five other Lund teams landed in the top twenty. Hasse and Topper’s team finished the event with a total bag of walleyes measuring just over 48 inches to take home the $15,400 prize.
The tournament was a two-day event that included 155 boats and 310 anglers. Anglers had to fish in teams of two, take photos of the fish and film a video showing the live release of the fish. Walleye tournaments have been a tradition on Leech Lake for over 25 years. The entire Leech Lake community has strongly supported the tournaments over the years with dozens of volunteers working to make it a success.
“We are thrilled to see so many of our professional team members successfully participating in this exciting event,” said Ryan Sproule, pro-staff and special events coordinator, Lund Boats. “We have always supported professional and amateur anglers and this tournament is a fun way for them to show off their skills. We want to congratulate Chuck and Randy and all of our top anglers.
