When Curt Plzak reeled in a 41.5-inch pike during his Ontario vacation in July, he quickly noticed it was the biggest fish he had ever caught. Little did he know it would generate even more excitement in September.

On Sept. 17, Crestliner Boats president Ben Cast selected Plzak's name in the grand-prize drawing of the Trumped Online Fishing tournament — its second annual contest, the company announced.

Plzak, of Loretto, Minn., secured his spot in the drawing when his pike earned second place on the leaderboard in August and stayed there through the end of the tournament.

Plzak's name was selected from a pool of 40 names, comprised of the top five anglers on each leaderboard for walleye, pike, bass and crappie, taken from both halves of the the 123-day competition. The random drawing was performed by pulling one lure from 40 that were placed in the filled live well of a 1650 Fish Hawk. Each lure had a number that corresponded with one of the 40 finalists.

Plzak chose a new Crestliner 16 Kodiak Side Console with a Mercury 25EL 4-Stroke and a ShoreLand'r CRV15AL Black Bunk Trailer — not a typical vacation souvenir, but he's not complaining.
