Area anglers team up to win walleye tournament in Devils Lake

DEVILS LAKE, N.D. – Troy Morris of Fargo and Corey Heiser of West Fargo teamed up to win last weekend's Cabela's Masters Walleye Circuit regular-season qualifier on Devils Lake.

Fishing with artificial bait since 2014, Morris and Heiser had a two-day total weight of 57 pounds, 1 ounce to win the 76-team tournament.

"This is our second season of spreading the word on fishing with artificial bait," Heiser said. "And winning a major event like this is really a pinnacle in proving to people that you don't need live bait to catch walleyes and be competitive."

The win was worth $18,780 including $10,600 in cash. The Masters Walleye Circuit is held in nine states and includes 11 regular-season qualifiers and the 2015 World Walleye Championship.
