Second Cabela’s MWC central division tournament competition
in Oshkosh, WI presented by Mercury Marine. Minnetonka, MN –
Cabela’s Masters Walleye Circuit is back in Oshkosh, WI for
2005 as it rolls into Lake Winnebago landing a full field of
440 resolute anglers. The MWC’s second Central Division tournament
will bring anglers from all over North America together in pursuit
of this year’s $107,000 purse. Beautiful Menominee Park will
serve as the backdrop for the launch and weigh in activities
for the June 25-26 competition. 220 teams will vie for the first
place prize of $28,512. The anglers will be greeted by the Oshkosh
Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Lighthouse Anglers Club.
Lake Winnebago, the largest lake within the state of Wisconsin
boarders, known for it scenic beauty, and incredible walleye
action has experienced unseasonably warm weather over the last
few weeks. Favorable conditions are expected during the tournament
which should translate into heavier weights. Trolling techniques
this year may need to be adjusted a bit due to the presence
of Zebra Muscles’ affect on water clarity. Good news for our
anglers is that Mercury’s four-stroke 9.9 Pro Kicker motor -
designed by fishermen for fishermen – could be a big asset here.
The Pro Kicker allows for running custom prop configurations,
“and with optional aftermarket accessories, even more control
can be achieved by dialing in your optimal speed” according
to Gary Gray, pro angler with Mercury Marine. Eighty to 90 percent
of the guys will be trolling the mud pulling spinners or cranks.
“The fact that the Pro Kicker has achieved the slowest trolling
speeds in its class is another reason why I like the Mercury
BigFoot Gear Case design”. For more information on tournament
