2016 Pewaukee Classic Recap

The 32nd annual Pewaukee Classic was held on Saturday, May 14th. We had over 95 anglers fishing in extremely tough cold-front conditions. Multiple times throughout the day, the anglers in this tourney got to fish while it was sleeting. Nonetheless, a total of 5 fish were registered from 30 – 39 inches with over 65 fish seen (follows). 1st place was Rich Vono with a 39 incher, 2nd place was Steve Berg with a 36-1/2 incher and 3rd place went to Mark Hartwig with a 35-1/2 incher. Raffle tables were as follows: musky rod was won by Mike Czaplewski, Just Encase box with baits was won by Scott Schuit and our grand prize winner Michael Gapiepy won the Minn Kota Terrova trolling motor. Thanks goes out to our many donors and sponsors for the wonderful gifts and another successful tournament. The sponsor list this year includes: Minn Kota, Pheasants Forever – Dale Burhardt, Cabela’s, Smokey’s Musky shop, Just-EnCase, Threadsetters, Sussex Bowl, Craig Ader, Eric Croatt (Baits), Jim Dembiec (Baits), Marty Forman (musky rod), George Kasch (Baits), Sig Kaminski (wood fish carvings), Geoff Verges (signed Packer football), and Rob Rehbein (musky baits and books). A special thanks also goes out to Bryan Blanke (chair of the event), as well as everybody else who helped out or participated. This event serves as a major fundraiser for our chapter, and was a great success this year–having one of its most successful results as of recent.
