Walleye fishing

  • The Cedar Falls team of Doug Bonwell and Doug Newhoff pulled off back-to-back wins last weekend during a pair of Cedar Valley Walleye Club tournaments on Pool 4 of the Mississippi River.

Saturday, Bonwell and Newhoff put together a five-fish limit weighing 24.39 pounds anchored by a 29.25-inch, 9.25-pound walleye to edge Ben Baker and Nick Baker’s 23.94 pounds that included an 8.49-pounder. Aaron Petersen and Brandon Carpenter took third at 19.04 pounds and Kenda Nelson and Eric Nelson were fourth at 15.02.

On Sunday, a change in wind direction and a cold front slowed the bite, but Bonwell and Newhoff scratched out a 19.78-pound limit for the win. Taylor Steffens and Rick Steffens were second at 18.23 pounds, Petersen and Carpenter repeated their third-place finish from Saturday with 16.71 pounds and Nate Cadwell and Nate Cadwell Jr. were fourth at 16.10 pounds with a 7.32-pounder that was big fish of the day.
