Olson wins FLW Walleye Tour event on Lake Oahe

PIERRE, S.D. - Pro Eric Olson of Red Wing, Minn., and co-angler David Hosek of White Bear Lake, Minn., caught 5 walleyes weighing 15 pounds, 8 ounces to win the FLW Walleye Tour Western Division tournament on Oahe Lake. Olson had a three-day catch of 15 walleyes weighing 45-7. He won by nearly 2-pounds over his closest competitor and took home $36,157* for his efforts.

"This is just incredible and a long time coming, what a nice confidence booster," said Olson, who got his first FLW Walleye Tour win. "I am as high on cloud nine as I can be that is still considered legal without a license from the FAA!

"I started out today on the same spot I fished all week expecting the wind to be about the same as on day one; when we got there it was completely opposite. I knew the fish were there and I didn't want to give-up so we stayed there until about 10, without a fish. I finally moved to my second spot and the fish were gone from there too. I came up on my third spot about 11 and at 12:07 we were finished!

"The wind reversed itself causing a current along the bluff which created a river like situation; I knew then that this was going to be our spot. We did lose two fish, but hey, I won't complain because I got what I needed and that's good enough for me.

"I have had such great partners this week, what a treat, especially the local guys - they really know this fishery and it is one of the best!"

Olson added that he was using night crawlers again today however; he added a bead to help make a difference in getting the fish to start biting.

Rounding out the top-10 pros are:

2nd: Gerrick McComsey, Fort Pierre, S.D., 14 walleyes, 43-10, $4,838*

"It was just a privilege to be able to fish with Eric today," said Hosek. "I tell you my heart was pumping at about 11 when we didn't have any fish, but Eric kept moving and we finally hooked one and then it was over, it really was a great day."

2nd: Todd Dankert, Anoka, Minn., 15 walleyes, 45-2, $1,658*
