Rhode and Hauf top field at BILLY BOLANDER Memorial Tournament
May 4, 2017

By Rich Winter

Really great event Sunday over at Roosevel Lake near Colome as bass-fisherman galore gathered for the Billy Bolander Memorial Tournament. 


In visiting with Mel Williams over at DB's Bait & Tackle in Winner, Williams explained that Bolander passed away about four years ago at the age of 43.


"Billy was a great friend to a lot of people and just loved fishing," Williams said. 


And so, despite some chilly temperatures with fisherman bundled up, the tournament went down. 


Billy Bolander Memorial Fishing Tournament results:

1. Mark Rohde and Bryce Hauf

2. Eric Storms and Shane Stiehl

3. Harlan (Minnesota Vikings) Folkers and Jimmy Walker


Congratulations to the winners and stop on over at DB's Bait & Tackle to gear up for a summer of memories made on the local lakes and waters of South Dakota. 


Like to get involved a little more in the outdoors scene this summer. Will he holding a big-bass fishing contest this summer....Need a picture and an official weight...Don't have all the details ironed out yet, but final contest details will be released on June 1. 


Until then, if you have a fishing picture or news and notes from any tournaments, I'd love to hear about them!!
