Bungard nets title on Wolf River Chain of Lakes

Bungard nets title on Wolf River Chain of Lakes
Bob Bungard of Holmen, Wis., won the June 16 Great Lakes Division event on the Wolf River Chain with a total weight of 17 pounds, 12 ounces. He was awarded over $4,500 for his efforts.

WINNECONE, Wis. - Bob Bungard of Holmen, Wis., weighed a five-bass limit totaling 17 pounds, 12 ounces Saturday to win the Walmart Bass Fishing League Great Lakes Division event on the Wolf River Chain of Lakes. For his victory, Bungard earned $4,575.

"I was boat number 124 to check-in," said Bungard. "And I was very happy with that because I wanted the extra time to fish. I made the long run to Lake Winnebago and it took me around 30 minutes to get there. I was thrilled when I saw no boats in an area where I had great success in practice, but it was short-lived because I found a ton of carp in there and they had it all tore up. I moved down the bank to a new area and was able to find some fish still on the beds. I was able to pick off a nice 4 pound, 14 ounce fish off of a bed and I just fished shallow, targeting any grass, ditches and rocks I could find. I had the most success using tubes.

"I ended up hitting around 20 spots, and found 15 keepers on the day," Bungard went on to say. "The key for me today was my knowledge of the water. After finding the carp in what had been my best area, it forced me to change it up. I also had a very good co-angler. He definitely knew what he was doing. He wasn't cutting me off, or throwing across the boat. I knew a spot where we could get a solid limit, and I wanted to stop there near the end of the day so he could get a limit as well. He ended up cashing a check as well and that made me very happy."

Rounding out the top 10 pros:

2nd: Jeff Benson, Holmen, Wis., five bass, 16-6, $2,288
3rd: Tom Farchione, Waterford, Wis., five bass, 15-14, $1,525

The next BFL Great Lakes Division tournament is scheduled for July 14 on the Mississippi River in Alma, Wis. After the fifth Great Lakes Division tournament is complete, the top 40 boaters and 40 co-anglers based on point standings will qualify for the Oct. 11-13 Regional Championship on Lake Barkley in Kuttawa, Ky. Boaters will compete for a top award of a Ranger Z518 with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard and a Chevy Silverado, while co-anglers will fish for a new Ranger Z518 with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard.

The BFL is a 24-division circuit devoted to weekend anglers, with 120 tournaments throughout the season, five in each division. The top 40 boaters and co-anglers from each division qualify for a regional tournament and compete to finish in the top six, which then qualifies them for one of the longest-running championships in all of competitive bass fishing - the Walmart BFL All-American presented by Chevy. Top winners in the BFL can move up to the EverStart Series or even the Walmart FLW Tour.
