(Riverton, WY) – Riverton resident Clint Acres and Casper resident Chuck McAuley won first place at the Glendo Mega fishing tournament last weekend with a total tournament weight of 59.42.
Clint shared that they had never fished the Western Nebraska Walleye Series before. The two walked away with the $10,600 total prize, plus the added money for a total of $12,750.
The Glendo Mega was capped at 40 teams, a much smaller tournament than he normally enters.
“We fished them for a long time, and it’s just a good way to spend time with your friends and family,” Clint said about fishing tournaments.
He encourages folks with boats to take a kid or someone who normally doesn’t go fishing out on the water.
“It’s a hobby to get into, especially for kids, and it’s just so much fun.”
