Chad Schilling literally ‘powdered’ the Oahe walleyes again on day
three jigging up another AMM CRR weight of more than 35 pounds, to take the win
on his home waters with more than 111 total pounds. He was confident going
into the event he could hold his own against the rest of the AIM field
with a strategy of staying local. His wish was to fish a longer day
avoiding the long runs many of the rest of the field were making. He
traveled less than twenty miles fishing an area bridge, and had the
entire spot to himself.

Chad had only looked at the pillars he was fishing briefly leading up
to the event, hoping to avoid pointing his spot out to any of the rest
of the field. The strategy paid off with his first Professional Angling
Championship winning a Lund 2075 powered by a Mercury 300 Verado and
fitted with a Mercury Pro Kicker, custom Lund trailer and travel cover.
The rig is valued at over $60,000.00.

He won today wearing his wife’s pink lip gloss.

No, that wasn’t part of the plan, or some sort of superstition Pro
fishermen live…it was actually a complete accident. Chad grabbed the
wrong lip balm tube this morning after a completely sleepless night, and
much to his Co Angler’s delight, continued to apply the bright pink
gloss all day, oblivious to the fact he was…well…sort of glowing, and
completely missing the correct application of the gloss for the effect
it was intended to offer.

Brett King was leading the JJ Keller Angler of the Year race coming
in to the Championship, and had a tough and very personally
disappointing day yesterday, placing him well back of Ross Grothe and
Robert Blosser until he came to the stage today. Robert and Ross both
had respectable days, but Brett King crushed the ‘Eyes today CRRing
30.61, enough to regain yesterday’s lost points and take home the AIM JJ
Keller Angler of the Year trophy and a check for $10,000.00.

Texan Kevin Audrain took second qualifying for the Championship
through the AIM Sanctioned Series. He spoke of the lack of water in his
home state due to severe drought, and how fishing here in South Dakota
was a treat; especially with all the walleyes he boated every day. Kevin
was using a gaudy spoon he said he’d usually not have used, but the
walleyes were all over it here so he kept that as his top presentation.

The top ten at the AIM International Championship:
Chad Schilling
Kevin Audrain
Robert Blosser
