Wendlandt Extends Lead, Martin Clinches Angler Of The Year Title At Walmart FLW Tour On Potomac River Presented By Ranger Boats

Pro angler Clark Wendlandt is chasing his first win on the Walmart FLW Tour since 2001.

Pro angler Clark Wendlandt of Leander, Texas, brought a five-bass limit to the scale Saturday weighing 14 pounds, 8 ounces, to extend his lead on day three of the Walmart FLW Tour at the Potomac River, presented by Ranger Boats. The tournament now heads into the fourth and final day of competition and the field is cut to the final 10 in the four-day event, hosted by the Charles County Board of Commissioners, that featured 142 of the best bass-fishing anglers in the world, casting for the top cash award of up to $ 125,000.

Wendlandt?s three-day cumulative weight of 47-2 extended his lead to 3 pounds, 12 ounces over second-place angler Adrian Avena of Vineland, New Jersey, who has a three-day weight of 15 bass totaling 43-6.

?Today, I focused on two key areas that I?ve been hitting all week,? said Wendlandt, who is seeking his first win on the Walmart FLW Tour since 2001. ?I?m keeping things fairly simple and just trying to grind it out as much as I can.

?I arrived at my first area and caught three keepers before 10 a.m.,? continued Wendlandt. ?That?s when I began to experience engine trouble. It wasn?t long before I was stuck out there.?

Wendlandt planned to use his trolling motor to scrape together whatever he could for the day and get an early tow in back to the marina. However, fellow competitor Shinichi Fukae, who was fishing at a nearby location, in a tremendous showing of sportsmanship, offered to let Wendlandt use his boat for the remainder of the day ? a decision that would guarantee Fukae a zero for the day and a 20th-place finish.

?It?s probably one of the greatest acts of sportsmanship I?ve seen in my time bass fishing,? Wendlandt said. ?We?re all out here competing for a lot of money, so for him to do that really shows his true character.

?After switching boats, I was able to move around in my areas more freely and ended up catching four more bass,? said Wendlandt.

Wendlandt said he caught eight keepers in less than two feet of water over the course of the day using two primary baits.

?I?m really not sure how I?m going to fish tomorrow,? said Wendlandt. ?It?s going to be interesting because of the amount of rain we?re getting. All I know is that I?ll be returning to my main areas.?

The top 10 pros advancing to the final day of competition on the Potomac River are:

1st: Clark Wendlandt, Leander, Texas, 15 bass, 47-2

2nd: Adrian Avena, Vineland, N.J., 15 bass, 43-6

3rd: Bryan Schmitt, Deale, Md., 15 bass, 42-1

4th: Livingston Lures pro Andy Morgan, Dayton, Tenn., 15 bass, 42-0

5th: Scott Martin, Clewiston, Fla., 15 bass, 40-14

6th: Darrel Robertson, Jay, Okla., 15 bass, 40-8

7th: John Voyles, Petersburg, Ind., 15 bass, 39-7

8th: Larry Nixon, Bee Branch, Ark., 15 bass, 39-6

9th: Randy Haynes, Counce, Tenn., 15 bass, 39-3

10th: Jim Moynagh, Carver, Minn., 15 bass, 39-2

Finishing in 11th through 20th are:

11th: Keystone Light pro Jeff Sprague, Point, Texas, 15 bass, 38-2, $ 11,269

12th: Scott Wiley, Bay Minette, Ala., 15 bass, 37-11, $ 11,269

13th: Rusty Trancygier, Hahira, Ga., 14 bass, 37-5, $ 11,269

14th: Ishama Monroe, Hughson, Calif., 15 bass, 36-12, $ 11,269

15th: Barry Wilson, Birmingham, Ala., 15 bass, 35-9, $ 11,269

16th: Quaker State pro Scott Canterbury, Springville, Ala., 14 bass, 34-9, $ 11,269

17th: Blake Nick, Adger, Ala., 13 bass, 34-2, $ 11,269

18th: Jason Lambert, Pickwick Dam, Tenn., 13 bass, 32-14, $ 11,269

19th: Michael Wooley, Collierville, Tenn., 13 bass, 31-1, $ 11,269

20th: Shinichi Fukae, Palestine, Texas, 10 bass, 26-1, $ 11,269

A complete list of results can be found at FLWFishing.com.

Overall, there were 87 bass weighing 212 pounds, 12 ounces caught by pros Saturday. Fourteen of the final 20 pros weighed in five-bass limits.

Anglers were also vying for the prestigious 2015 Walmart FLW Tour Angler of the Year title that is determined by the most points accumulated over the six Tour events in 2015.

For the first time in his storied career, pro Scott Martin of Clewiston, Florida, wrapped up the Angler of the Year title on Saturday. He narrowly edged out pro John Cox of DeBary, Florida, in a tightly contested race that thrilled fishing fans throughout the season. Martin, who clinched the first Angler of the Year title of his career as well as a check for $ 100,000, also will receive an automatic berth into the 2016 Forrest Wood Cup.

Pro Zack Birge of Blanchard, Oklahoma, clinched the 2015 Walmart FLW Tour Rookie of the Year award Friday, which is awarded to the rookie pro angler who finishes the season with the highest point total.

Jim Jones of Big Bend, Wisconsin, won the co-angler division and $ 25,000 Friday with a two-day total of 10 bass weighing 25 pounds, 2 ounces, followed by Kyle Prskalo of Hobart, Indiana, who finished in second place with eight bass weighing 23 pounds, 15 ounces, worth $ 7,081.

John Hunter of Shelbyville, Kentucky, clinched the Walmart FLW Tour Co-Angler of the Year title Friday and won a new Ranger Z518C with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard.

Avena Leads Day One Of Walmart FLW Tour On Potomac River Presented By Ranger Boats

Adrian Avena of Vineland, New Jersey, leads day one of the 2015 Walmart FLW Tour at the Potomac River presented by Ranger Boats.

Pro angler Adrian Avena of Vineland, New Jersey, brought a five-bass limit to the scale Thursday weighing 16 pounds, 12 ounces to take the lead after day one of the Walmart FLW Tour at the Potomac River presented by Ranger Boats. Avena will start the second day of competition with a 1-pound, 6-ounce lead in the nationally televised four-day tournament, hosted by the Charles County Board of Commissioners, that features 142 of the top bass-fishing anglers in the world competing for a top cash award of up to $ 125,000.

Right behind Avena in second place is pro Troy Morrow of Eastanollee, Georgia, who weighed in five bass totaling 15 pounds, 6 ounces.

Prior to the start of the tournament many anglers were lamenting the tough conditions and wondering if they were going to be able to catch a fish, let alone a five-bass limit. However when the final fish was weighed Thursday, 114 of the 142 pros competing were able to fill their limits and the entire field caught at least one fish.

?I?ve been looking forward to this event all season long,? said Avena, who has two prior top-10 finishes in FLW Tour competition, including a ninth-place finish earlier this season at Lake Eufaula. ?This is the closest tournament to home, and I grew up saltwater fishing and I love tidal waters. That?s what I did today ? run the tide. I probably hit 25 different places today and caught 15 keepers.

?Some of the places are one-fish spots and others are multiple-fish places,? Avena continued. ?I?m fishing a combination of grass, current and rock ? textbook tidal-river junk fishing. I have like 20 rods on my deck, and I caught my keepers today on seven different baits. Basic stuff ? a ChatterBait, swimjig, frog, small crankbait and a weightless worm. ?

Avena said that he culled out a solid 12-pound limit throughout the day and left a few areas where fish were still biting.

?I was catching 2- and 2

Dallas-based Park Cities Pet Sitter Launching Use of iPads for Staff Beginning June 2015

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) May 13, 2015

Using technology to stay in touch with field staff is not a brand new phenomenon for many industries. It is quite common to see internet and cable providers, and other companies that manage large workforces in the field– with tablets and other devices that help their workers stay in contact with their office, and adjust their daily schedules at a moment?s notice. Until recently, this management tool had not yet reached another industry with field staff, the pet sitting industry.

Park Cities Pet Sitter is the largest pet sitting company in the Dallas market, and next month will be joining the ranks of companies using smart devices to help their business run smoothly. Beginning in June, all full-time Park Cities Pet Sitter field staff will be given Apple iPad Airs to assist them in their job responsibilities, all in conjunction with a switch to new scheduling software. The iPad Airs will allow Park Cities Pet Sitter?s staff to check in and out remotely as they do their scheduled visits, as well as allow staff to see the most up-to-date customer and pet information available for their visits. It will also allow staff to immediately see any last minute revisions to their schedule, without requiring a phone call to communicate such changes.

Park Cities Pet Sitter President,Joette White, can hardly wait for the conversion to the new software and rollout of iPads to her staff. ?Managing the activities of 25 field employees is one of the biggest challenges my company faces. Making sure each staff member has all the information they need to do the best job possible is critical. Communicating this information, up until now, has meant calling staff cell phones, leaving them voice mails, sending them emails and sitters having to log into their home computers to view our scheduling system and update client information. There can be a delay in the sitter getting information if they are in the middle of a visit or are not in a place they have access to a computer. With our new scheduling software and iPads for staff, our office will have more information about their progress through their daily visits, and the sitters will be able to access their schedule and customer information online while in the field. We believe these tools will take our high customer satisfaction ratings to an even higher level.?

From Ms. White?s perspective, there are a number of staff management benefits that will come from her staff using iPads in the field: the check in and check out feature will allow management to track staff?s progression through their daily schedule; the acknowledgment feature will allow staff members to confirm their acceptance of new visits while in the fields versus waiting until they are in front of their computers at home, making the scheduling process faster; and updates of customer or pet data that staff learn about during a visit can be made in the client?s online profile in real time. ?All of these new tools will make our business run faster and more smoothly, which will solidify our place as customer service leaders in this market,? said Ms. White.

Ms. White believes the benefit of her staff?s use of iPads extends to their clients as well. ?Previously our staff would carry paper profiles with client and pet data. They will no longer need to do so, since this data will now be available at the push of a button from a password-secured tablet. That increases customer peace of mind and security. Real time updating of client information in the field by our staff means that if a backup staff member needs to step in and care for a client?s pets, that they have the most up-to-date information to do so–without needing to go to a computer to print off data that potentially could be out-of-date. Frankly, the list of client benefits with this conversion to iPads for our pet sitters is really quite long, and we cannot wait to roll this out next month. This is the future for the pet sitting industry.?

Park Cities Pet Sitter, Inc. has served the Dallas area 7 days a week, 365 days a year since 1992. Pet sitting, daily dog walks, pet taxis, overnight sitting, pet supply shopping, litter box cleaning and dog training are all part of the services PCPSI offers. Park Cities Pet Sitter is bonded and insured, and all sitters are employees–not independent contractors. A manager is on-call 24 hours a day to handle any emergencies. Additional information about Park Cities Pet Sitter can be found on their website at http://www.pcpsi.com.
