F-M Walleyes Unlimited, Inc.
FM Walleyes Unlimited, Inc. incorporated in 1977 to promote conservation, sportsmanship and education of walleye fishing in the greater Fargo - Moorhead area.
Kyle Anderson and Dave Longtine put together what could be considered one of the most convincing wins in recent Pelican Spring Classic Tournament history, besting the second place team by nearly 3 lbs. To defend their title the requirement at the Cormorant Fall Classic is clear - They need to win, period.
Under the revised FM Walleye Classic Cup Season Points Championship, 3 tournaments are now eligible for points to be awarded in the season points competition. 2 of the 3 best finishes in the Pelican Spring Classic, Cormorant Fall Classic, and newly added Scott’s Bait Tournament on Ottertail Lake now factor in to the Classic Cup Season Points Championship. Fred Sanchez and his partners Chris and Jamie Roehl made a strong case for their team finishing second at the Pelican Spring Classic, and posting a win at Scott’s Bait Tournament on Ottertail. Going into the Cormorant Fall Classic, there are only 3 potential winners possible with the bar that Fred Sanchez has set. Kyle Anderson can win outright with a Fall Classic win, or we could have 1 of 3 different teams force the title to a tie breaker decision. Tie breakers are determined by the largest weight, on the second day of the Cormorant Fall Classic – so Kyle Anderson, Fred Sanchez, and second-place finisher in the Ottertail Tournament, Chad Friederichs, all have a chance to take the title.
Second through 5th Place teams will share the $2000 cash prizes. The Lund Boat/Shoreland’r trailer package will be awarded to the Champion. Mike Kerzman, who posted 3rd-place finishes at both the Pelican Spring Classic and Scott’s Bait Tournament is complimenting the caliber of anglers he competes against each year in the Classic Cup Tournament. At 2/3rds of the way through the season with 2 third-place finishes, there is virtually no way he can win the 2013 Classic Cup Champion’s title. Mike has vowed these anglers will get his best competition in the Cormorant Fall Classic, along with the other teams, to assure the champion will have to bring their best game to earn a champion’s title.
In addition to competing for the Season Points title, anglers are faced with their final opportunity to qualify for the first FM Walleyes Champions Challenge Mystery Lake Tournament scheduled to take place in the 2015 summer season. To qualify for the Champions Challenge Tournament, anglers must first cash a check in one of 2014’s Classic Cup tournaments. The Fall Classic is the last chance to qualify for the new and exciting mystery lake format tournament that will test the angler’s ability to figure out an unknown body of water during competition hours where the top finishing 10% will each be awarded a $4,500 payout.
