The All Eyes on Fishing "Go Get Em" series had 14 participants who battled for the biggest Walleye, Bass and the biggest 5 fish stringer of Walleye. The participants battled from boat, kayak and shore for the honor of having the biggest fish (cumulative inches). A night bite is huge at Pueblo Reservoir this time of year and Lindsey Smith took advantage of some night shore fishing to add to her wining numbers of fish. A total of 75 Walleyes were submitted with the following results for the first "Go Get Em" digital tournament at Pueblo Reservoir.

The "Go Get Em" tournament at Cherry Creek State Park boasted the most Walleyes with the biggest average fish. Many posted 5 fish limits with several fish over 20 inches. Unlike Pueblo Reservoir the Cherry Creek participants caught over 190 Walleye from boats and mostly trolling. This tournament was a battle all the way to the end with several lead changes over the week. Not only did Ryan win the biggest Walleye but he also was the first place winner!

North Sterling Reservoir came down to a battle between Guy Thompson and Brett Rye. These two friends watched each other on the live leader board post one fish after another and the lead would change hands several times. North Sterling boasted a healthy 35 fish verified between 4 participants.

Congratulations to Cody Lawhorn for his 1st place finish and this big Eye! Cody rocked it again and swept the money.
John Falk was one of two participants in our first Go Get Em in Northern Colorado and he clenched the win with two fish and he also got big fish. John is a new Colorado resident and is jumping into the Walleye fishing with both feet. Good job John.
Jumbo lived up to it's name when it came to the big fish submitted. Guy Thompson put in some time and walked away with the win and this 30 inch monster! Jumbo is also the location of the next CWT tournament. Boe Kampbell competed in his first Go Get Em and found 2nd place to his liking. Great job guys.
This was a great set of days filled with many great fish submitted by a group of kids swinging for the fences. It was awesome to see the next generation of anglers catching big Bass and competing. Great job by Andrew Plutt who won 1st place and submitted this 18+ inch Smallie for the big fish win.
Cherry Creek did not disappoint yielding many good fish and a 28 inch pig caught by our returning champion and still undefeated Go Get Em Cherry Creek champ Ryan Buck. Donald Broeren may know Cherry Creek as well anyone and made a run at the champ but fell a little short and came in second.
Brian Nowak out fished everyone with his three Walleye totaling 48.25 inches and earning him $114 for his catch. Michael Herrera took 2nd with 23 inches and earning him $57 for his efforts. November provided some above average temps and the opportunity to compete. Great job by all who participated.
