FENWICK PROS DOMINATE PWT EVENT
Fenwick anglers overshadowed the field of 50 at this past weekend’s PWT event on Saginaw Bay. The Fenwick team dominated the Saginaw Bay event, placing nine anglers in the top ten. The top three positions of the Professional Walleye Trail event included Fenwick pros: Mark Courts 1st place, Tommy Skarlis 2nd place and Bill Ortiz 3rd place.
Courts brought in a four-fish limit both days to earn the title with 39-pounds, 8-ounces of fish for the tournament. The win on Saginaw Bay in Bay City, Mich. earned the Fenwick pro a prize package worth over $100,000.
“The rod is a crucial element to a walleye pro's success,” said Mark Courts. “I had a great tournament and my success can be attributed to the Fenwick rods in my boat. They are well balanced and provide the sensitivity needed to detect the subtlest of bites.”
Courts was not the only Fenwick pro enjoying a big tournament. Tommy Skarlis finished second and Bill Ortiz finished third, giving Fenwick a 1,2,3 finish to begin the season.
