Masters Walleye Circuit


Minnesotans Take Overall Honors

FRANKLIN, WIS. – The Red Wing, Minn. team of Bob Bodin and Scott Mann have won the prestigious 1999 Masters Walleye Circuit (MWC) Team of the Year title.  The award is one of the most coveted in the realm of professional walleye angling.
The title is awarded the team which totals the most points during the circuit season.  The first place team at each tournament receives 110 points, down to 11 points.  The remaining teams receive ten points.
Competing against 1,025 teams (2,050 anglers) in five 1999 MWC events, Bodin and Mann placed 3rd, 2nd, 19th, 5th and 33rd, totaling 493 points out of a possible 550 points.  The circuit veterans received $6,000 from the MWC sponsors for their achievement.  Additionally, the pair will become members of the North American Fishing Cub Walleye Advisory Council for 2000, joining the top walleye pros who are featured in a question and answer column in the North American Fisherman magazine, the official publication of the MWC, having over 600,000 subscribers.
Bodin/Mann easily agreed that capturing the MWC Team of the Year crown was the highlight of their fishing career.  They stated that the title was a dream come true and their next goal is winning next year’s MWC World Walleye Championship®.  In addition to the $6,000 the team collected for the team title, they also pocketed $16,250 in circuit winnings, for a total of $22,250.
Mark and Tom Keenan Brothers, Mark and Tom Keenan of Wisconsin, the 1998 MWC Team of the Year, finished second in this year’s team race with 458 points.  Pat Neu and Mike Schaefer, also from Wisconsin, were third with 424 points.
The top 50 point accumulating teams will be invited to compete at the MWC World Walleye Championship® May 3-6, 2000, on the Mississippi River (Pool 3) above Lake City, Minn., featuring indoor weigh-ins and a first place cash prize of $20,000.

MWC Father/Son Team of the Year
Winning their first MWC Father/Son Team of the Year honors were Wisconsinites Ken (Marshfield) and Dave Bjorkman (Green Bay), who tallied 315 points.  Two-time titleholders, Jim (Randolph, Wis.) and Tim Minnema (Markesan, Wis.) took second with 203 points. 

Kaz Cup
Dick and Irene Schiefelbein of Sheboygan, Wis., seven time winners of the MWC Husband/Wife Team of the Year title, were recipients of the first annual Kaz Cup, presented by Wildlife Forever, who will be succeeding Bob “Kaz” Kaczkowski, MWC’s Executive Director, and his wife Beverly, MWC Secretary, who are retiring.  The Cup is  awarded the circuit angler or anglers who display professionalism on and off the water, in a manner exemplifying the standards of the MWC; specifically, sportsmanship, family values, fishery conservation and good fellowship towards tournament and non-tournament anglers, tournament officials, volunteers, spectators and sponsors. 

The MWC is a nonprofit corporation which conducts a series of professionally run fishing tournaments at which family participation and conservation of fishery resources are stressed.

They were also presented with framed prints of "Double or Nothing Walleyes," by the Wild Wings Art Gallery of Lake City.According to Seipel, "We fished the Wisconsin Channel, using yellow-colored ¼ oz. jigs tipped with crawlers. "Maxstadt added, "We also used some chartreuse-colored #7 and #9 Rapala the lures of choice Shad Raps.  The fish really turned on for us today [Sun.]; we couldn’t be happier."First day leaders with 22.12 lbs., were Rick Nascak and Joe Wilson of Winona, Minn., who won a Goldeneye Products makes of the fine Panther lifts for outboard motors Panther Auxiliary Motor Lift Big Basket Award valued at $500.  They finished second with 28.63 lbs., worth $7,500.  The pair fished down river in the Wilcox area using 1/8 to 3/8 oz. chartreuse- or orange-colored jigs and crawlers.Third place finishers were Wisconsinites Mike Krinke (Manchester) and Joe Minnema (Markesan) with 24.15 lbs., earning $5,000.  Most of their fish came from the Dead Slew Lake area of the river with 3/8 oz. pink jigs and half a crawler.Big fish honors, a $1,000 Mercury Marine Outboard motors rebate certificate, and $900 from the Big Fish Pot, went to Randy Stevens (Rochester, Minn.) for his 7.78 lb. walleye.  He and son, Rob, also of Rochester, placed sixth, collecting $1,500. A full 200 team field was challenged by unstable weather and low water conditions.  Still, 926 walleyes, weighing 1,758.29 lbs., were caught in the MWC catch and release format.The MWC Conservation Fund, the only fund of its kind in professional angling, donated $2,000 to the Lake City area DNR fisheries office.  The grant will be used for an ongoing walleye enhancement program on pool 4 of the Mississippi River.  To date, the MWC Conservation Fund has donated over $203,000 to fishery related projects in states where MWC tournaments are held.The tournament was also the finale for MWC Executive Director, Bob "Kaz" Kaczkowski and his wife Beverly, MWC Secretary, who guided the circuit from its beginning 15 years ago.  The couple was honored with awards, gifts and festivities by MWC anglers, sponsors and the community throughout the tournament weekend.The 2000 MWC brochure, containing entry forms for next season’s tournaments, will be mailed to current MWC members this fall.  Brochures will also be available from Wildlife Forever (who is taking over the operation of the MWC from the Kaczkowskis), at 10365 W. 70th St., Eden Prairie, MN 55344-9403, tel., 612-833-1522.The MWC is a nonprofit corporation which conducts a series of professionally operated fishing tournaments at which family participation and conservation of fishery resources are stressed.
