Top Finish: Big Fish Champ 2012, 2016, 2017
Walleye was one of the few anglers from the beginning that really knew how to bait a hook, he could even almost lift his tackle box clean over his head! We were all completly bewildered at Walleye’s early success, he is currently SANJAYA’s only multi year Big Fish Champ. I speak for everyone when I say we were all astounded at
how far he could cast his pole for a guy that doesn't swing his arms when he walks!?..... it's BREATHTAKING!
Clearly one of Walleye’s biggest advantages in the early competition was he actually owned a real fishing pole! And a tackle box! With real lures! He had hooks and other assorted angling gear in there we could only dream of, it was all just BREATHTAKING!
Walleye, affectionately known as Powder because of his aversion to the sun (wink, wink), always comes to the tournaments prepared. One of the few OA’s, Original Anglers, that enjoys the off season; so he can spend endless hours polishing his lures, practicing his knot tying, rearranging his tackle box and treating his fishing pole like an amusement park.
Walleye’s rock solid success comes from his confidence in his angling ability. When asked about it he stated “I’m stable! I’m like a rock! I take these glasses off and you can’t tell the difference between me and a rock! I put these glasses on a rock! You know what jumps into most people’s minds? That’s right, three times Big Fish Champ, Walleye!”
No doubt Champ! Fellow Angler Smelt said of Walleye’s angling techniques “I’ve seen Walleye on the boat, he is so focused on the fish that he can block out everything going on around him on the water, just like when he dunks his donuts at Dinky Donuts!”
Can you spot the
Creepy Camouflage Squatch?
Word on the docks is several CNN News Sources have reported there are at least five different online fishing networks that have BANNNED Walleye from their sites! Yes as of now he is BANNED! They no longer want his opinions or contentions. The buzz going around is that Walleye is bragging that this has to be some kind of a record. According to CNN sources Walleye is going to stage a walk out if he does not get a "BANNED" trophy!
Folks I guarantee that’s not fake news!
Featuring several returning Big Fish Champs, some crafty veteran Anglers and a rookie Angler from (JABS) Jersey Anglers Bass Series, this year's Invitational is shaping up to be the fish wrangling brouhaha that could go down in SANJAYA history as the greatest show on water! I’m sure Walleye has a план to raise the bar on his angling game to take it to the next level.
No doubt he wants to be the one holding the SANJAYA “BIG FISH CHAMP” Cup, when the bell tolls for thee on Saturday!
Good Luck товарищ Walleye!
