August 30, 2010 Minnetonka, MN-Great fishing and a shot at thousands of dollars in cash await anglers when the Cabela’s Masters Walleye Circuit visits Waubay Lake, South Dakota, September 18-19.
“I think we’ll see teams catching a lot of fish, with most in the 14- to 16½-inch range but some big ones as well,” said local guide and MWC veteran Jason Coester, of Webster. Both Coester and MWC Tournament Director Dan Palmer predict a variety of presentations to produce walleye gold on this amazing prairie fishery. “It’s such a versatile body of water,” said Palmer. “You can catch walleyes on just about any technique from rigging to trolling and jigging.”
Based on a 50-team field, the top 10 teams share a $26,000 cash purse, with the victors claiming a $10,000 first-place check. Sponsor bonuses including Cabela’s Angler Cash, Berkley Premier Team, Ranger Cup, Lowrance HDS, and U2 the Oxygenator add another $3,700 to the table. Plus, anglers have the option of entering the Big Fish Pot, which pays cash awards for the top three walleyes each tournament day. At the Lake Winnebago, Wisconsin, circuit stop earlier this season, the Big Fish Pot paid a total of $3,400.
Two-person teams still have time to sign up before registration closes September 13. For details, visit: www.masterswalleyecircuit.com; email: [email protected]; or call: (877) 893-7947.
Teams will launch out of Kanago Access Boat Ramp at 7 a.m. and return at 3 p.m., with weigh-ins held at the Izaak Walton Clubhouse. The MWC and National Professional Anglers Association will present a Youth & Family Fishing Clinic immediately after the first day’s weigh-in. Youths receive rods and reels donated by Cabela’s and Berkley, and tackle packages courtesy of Northland Fishing Tackle.
This is the final stop on the MWC West Division’s 2010 season. The circuit visited Mobridge, South Dakota, May 8-9 and Devils Lake, North Dakota August 21-22.
