2020 Fresno Challenge – Canceled
2020 Rock Creek
Jay Erickson and Garrett Long both from Wolf Point won the 2020 Rock Creek Walleye Tournament with a total weight of 36.96 pounds. Extreme southeast winds caused the cancellation of the first day of the tourney so Sunday became a one-day shoot-out. Erickson and Long found an effective crankbait bite and bested the Runner-Up Team of Joe Baird from Gillette, WY, and Will Schilt of Riverton, WY by over seven pounds. Baird and Schilt put together a very respectful 29.68 pounds on the scoreboard. Baird caught his first 30” walleye pre-fishing and Schilt got his first 30” on that day. Not many places besides Peck do you and your partner get in the 30” club in a few days of fishing…
Jesse Reuter from Sidney and Jordan Dasinger from Glendive wasn’t too far behind with 27.56 pounds and captured third place. The Mixed/Couple award went to Todd Dooley and Becky Lange both from Sidney and they ended up in 8th place overall. The Adult/Child winning team was Gage Gordon from Belgrade and Owen Wilcox from Laurel, who finished up 9th overall.
The Largest Walleye Caught and Released was a 32 ¼ inch/13.69 pound beast caught by Jason Eggebrecht of Ft. Peck and Ross Lien of Glendive who finished in 5th place in the event. The largest Northern Pike brought in was a 38” gator wrestled in by Don Pyrah of Lewistown and Pat Slater from Lovell, WY. The Wolf Point Wild West Chapter Wee Walleye Award was a 5.5” monster that was battled in after a very lengthy scuffle by John Swenson of Miles City and JR Lund from Winnett. Rumor has it that these two cowboys were nearly ready to toss in the towel before they got him into the minnow net.
