Thanks for a great Walleye Smackdown 2009.  What a great turnout and of course a fantastic fishery yielded limit catches for most participants.  Even the salmon guys were able to put fish in the cooler. 

Tournament day turned out to be great on the water, the weather cooperated to produced a low stress flat water afternoon for those that still needed some time to fill out their limits.

Big Fish honors were taken by Team Green Machine and his crew with a really nice 5.69 pounder.  Captain Terry Green and his crew made the long trip again from Wisconsin to put a smackdown on their contest winning fatty. See the full results here:

Big Fish Results

The 2009 Smackdown champion (5 fish excluding Big Fish entry) goes to Team Cantgetenough sneaking by Team Skunk Ape by .25 # with a total 5 fish weight of 21.25 #.  Steve was on good fish during pre-fishing and continued to deliver on Saturday.  See the full results here:

Tournament Results

The post tournament festivities were first class all the way with Double Easy and Lady Bridge frying up walleye, fries, and onion rings.  Big thanks go out to both for all the hard work and equipment with Double Easy's professional deep fryer and Lady Bridge's awesome fry wagon.  The food didn't stop there as tons of awesome sides, salads, and desserts were brought by all the participants, we had three tables full of food all of which were great!  
BFG, Little Dandy, and Roamer get props for organizing and making the 2009 Walleye Smackdown happen.  It's definitely very much appreciated that these guys spend their off time coordinating everything that goes on to do the event.  There is more than you think that goes into making an event like this happen and it wouldn't happen without the volunteers.

We'd also like to thank all the sponsors who donated prizes making for some very nice giveaways for the outing:

Dreamweaver Lures: Thanks to Shane, Roger, and Mark for donating all the WDs that were given away to the anglers as well as the lure packages that were awarded during the raffle.  Next time your looking to purchase some new walleye spoons give the WDs a ride.

Toledo Beach Marina:  For supporting our group again, for the great facilities, and making us feel at home for the third time.  If your planning on spending a weekend in the water please give TBM your business as they have treated all of us very well and let them know Educated Angler sent ya.

Uncle Roy's Tackle Box: Thanks to Salmonroy for the great raffle prize with an awesome box full of his special spinners and a couple of gift certificates.  A special shout out for allowing the community to participate in naming some of his new gear and rewarding those with gift packages.

Ridgeback Rattler:  Thanks to Chip for the gift certificates and the continued support of the event.  Make use of the those certificates and try a Ridegback Rattler.

L.A. Katidid:  Thanks to Keith for donating a pair of his new trolling bags cant wait to hear how they work.

Green Machine:  Thanks to Terry for the downrigger and inline weights and to Lucky Sherm for the donation of a couple of jars of his awesome homemade honey.

Lady Bridge:  For all of the Wendy's coupons going right after the hearts and minds of a hungry angler.

Most importantly thanks to all of the anglers, friends, and family that made this the biggest Walleye Smackdown yet.  Community means more then just chatting on the Internet and this is a great way for everyone to participate in real life and have a great time together.
