Team to watch for

Following a 1st place finish at Rock Creek
that first weekend of June, Glasgow’s Ken
Schmidt (at right) and Mark Jones of Billings
followed it up with a second place finish at the
Canyon Ferry Festival this past Saturday and
Sunday with 28.08 pounds on just four fish
(one on Saturday, three on Sunday) behind
winners Cory Novak and Kyle Belo who had
34.88 pounds on five fish (four on Saturday,
one on Sunday). The majority of the 200-team
field caught way more walleye — some teams
carded five both days — but didn’t even get a
paycheck. That’s the way this tournament has
been going, you have to know how to find big
fish. You absolutely gotta go hunting for the
big ones. In fact, Glasgow’s Kris Keller and
Whit Rush placed 7th on just two fish! This
included a 12.38 pounder. 1st place received
$10,000 plus $400 day money. Schmidt and
Jones had a $5,400 payday. So if anyone’s
got momentum going into the Montana
Governor’s Cup Walleye Tournament July 11-
13, this is a team to watch. Ken — or shall we
call him HOt Shtick Schmidt — has already
been in on two Guv Cup titles as well as a
North Dakota Governor’s Cup title.
