The Milwaukee Expo in cooperation with OutdoorsFirst Media is pleased to announce the addition of the First Annual Hand Crafted Musky Lure Building World Championship to the 2012 show. 

The competition will highlight hand-built, hand painted original lures made by talented lure artisans from all over the world.  There has been growing interest regarding custom lures in angling circles as well as internet forums, especially the unbelievable paint jobs which are worthy of being placed in art studios

The idea for the competition originated from viewing various forums and posts on the internet added by lure crafters showing off their creations.  Duck hunting has decoy carving contests, woodcarving has countless carving contests, so why not promote the increased interest in the sport of musky fishing by having a custom lure competition. 

These lures are created by the most talented craftsmen in the world, and not only do they have to craft a lure with enticing action they have to paint them to attract a musky, but appeal to the discriminating eye of today’s musky fisherman.

The lures will be displayed at the OutdoorsFirst Media Booth at the show where visitors can look at the lures up close and vote for their favorite one.  The competition will consist of 3 categories including:  topwater, crankbait, and glide/jerkbait.  The competition will also consist of 3 divisions within each catagory including manufacturers, professional/basement, and amateur for a total of nine winners.  Patrons entering the show will be given a judging form in which they can vote for their favorite lure.  After the results of the competition have been tallied, the winners will be announced and the one-of-a-kind lures will be auctioned off to the highest bidder.  All proceeds from the entries and auction will be donated to a charity that will benefit musky fishing.  Entrants interested in being part of the competition can obtain an entry form from the Milwaukee Expo website.
