Erie Produces Big for FLW Walleye Pros

Everyone suspected that the FLW Walleye Tour Event at Lake Erie would be a toadfest. True to expectations, the giant lake produced and abundance of giant walleyes.

Minnesota pro Keven McQuoid topped the field, weighing in 118 pounds, 4 ounces of walleyes in three days. That is an average of very close to 8 pounds per fish! For comparison, his three-day total was more than 45 pounds heavier than what it took to win the first tour event of this season at the Mississippi River. Fish in Tommy Skarlis' winning sack on the Mississippi averaged a little less than 5 pounds.

It wasn't just McQuoid's winning pattern or spot, either (although he did win the event by a significant 5-pound margin). The top nine anglers at Erie had three-day totals of more than 100 pounds. Digging deeper in the results, a two-day total of 60 pounds (6-pound average) landed an angler just shy of 50th place.

Congratulations to Kevin McQuoid on his third FLW win.
