OPTIMA Angler, Steve Paulsen Hits The Jackpot!
Some might call it an unfair advantage, that Steve Paulsen won the National Guard FLW Walleye Tour event in Green Bay. After all, that is where he regularly drops lines in the water with his Walleye Madness Guide Service. However, up until last week, Steve had never fished a National Guard FLW Walleye Tour event.
Fast forward one week later and Steve is holding a $55,000 check, after his three-day total of 92 pounds, five ounces dominated the field, outpacing second place by nearly 12 pounds! Steve wasn't giving away the exact location of his secret spot, but did mention that it was wind-driven and that the fish wouldn't start biting until there was one to two feet of chop. It takes a lot of power to stay on a spot in such windy conditions and OPTIMA is proud to be the battery that kept Steve on top of the fish all weekend long. Congratulations Steve!
