On day two at the 2015 St. Mary’s River Walleye Cup held in Sault Ste Marie, Michigan, the Lesyshen brothers, Nick and Andy started the day in 19th position out of 30 boats when they headed out on the water on Sunday morning, July 26th.
After day one with 5.97 lbs and not finding fish in their go to spots, Nick and Andy finished the 2015 event in seventh place with a total of 27.2 lbs. With a seventh place finish, the Lesyshen’s had the highest placing for fishing in Canadian waters, second biggest fish of the day and the fourth biggest fish of the tournament.
The wind played a role on Sunday and eventually helped us bring in some 7 lbs walleye, said Andy. Sunday morning, the Lesyshen brothers finished all morning where they only caught a few smaller fish but decided to hunt for some size and it paid off around noon where Nick and Andy caught three fish totaling 15 lbs.
Andy told Saultsports that “it is always a fun time when I fish with my brother.”
Next up for the Lesyshen’s will be the Sagamok Fall Walleye Classic over two days fishing for over $35,000 in cash and prizes. The tournament is hosted by Sagamok Anishnawbek in conjunction with the Northern Ontario Walleye Walleye Trail from September 26th – 27th in Massey, Ontario on Spanish River.
