FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
For Immediate Release –
Oshkosh, Wisc.—June 14, 2014—Wisconsin’s Matt and Eric Wilterdink sacked an impressive 17-pound, 1-ounce, five-fish limit to win the Cabela’s North American Bass Circuit’s North Region Lake Winnebago qualifier out of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, June 14.
“It feels really good,” said Eric, of Sherwood. “My brother Matt and I have been fishing tournaments together for a long time and this is our first big win in a major regional event.” It wasn’t their first solid showing in a Cabela’s NABC qualifier, however. They finished in ninth place both previous times the Circuit stopped at Lake Winnebago, in 2012 and 2011.
The third time was definitely the charm, and Eric credited the 2014 event’s the post-spawn time frame for their better finish this season. “We saw more of a summer pattern, with the bass feeding again,” he said, explaining that they pitched tubes and jig-and-craw presentations into emerging weedbeds in three feet of water along Winnebago’s west shore for the win.
“Our day didn’t start out well,” noted Matt Wilterdink, of Neenah. “We tried for smallmouths at first. But when we only caught one 14-incher during the first hour and half of the tournament, we decided that our smallie program wasn’t working and switched gears.” The brothers claimed $7,000 in winnings for their first-place finish, including $6,400 in cash plus a pair of $300 Cabela’s gift cards. They also pocketed $1,050 from the Big Bass Pot for catching big fish of the tournament, a 4-pound, 11-ounce largemouth.
