As the days of January continue to decline and the hours of daylight continue to increase (slowly), the 2020 Champions Tour is getting closer and closer!
With this, there is a continued influx of new anglers that are looking to test their skills against some of the best angling talent in the Midwest via a competitive, engaging and though provoking format.
We have some additional new anglers that we want to welcome to the 2020 Champions Tour…
Richard Kargel –
Following twenty years of service in the United States Army, Kargel a Minnesota native was able to dive into his passion of fishing. Richard started Kargel Fishing in 2019 and guided part time on Mille Lacs and as of May 1st this coming year, he’ll be retiring from his job as operations manager for a pool restoration company and focusing full-time on fishing.
“You don’t get better unless you challenge yourself and there is no better way to challenge yourself than to compete against the best,” said Richard about the upcoming Champions Tour season.
Bob Schill –
Schill who began tournament bass fishing around twenty years ago has fished team events and individual events via the American Bass Anglers (ABA) Association. Over these years, he has multiple wins and qualified for Nationals every season. During the 2017 season, Schill set a District 44 ABA record by weighing a 6.93 lb bass on Lake Waconia, this over took a 27-year record.
“I’m looking forward to the Champions Tour format and hopefully a fun season on Tour with these anglers, as I have fished with many of them over the last 25 years or so.”
Clayton Stoering –
Clayton Stoering has done the bulk of his fishing in the southern Minnesota Lakes and has fished Lake Minnetonka a fair amount with a 2018 Denny’s Super 30 Minnetonka Team of the Year award and a 2017 DH Custom Rods-Excelsior Brewing Open win on his resume.
“I am excited to compete under the Champions Tour format, which will be new to me and on new lakes against the best anglers in our region. “
