About Us


If you’re looking for world-class walleye fishing and the chance to win thousands of dollars in cash and prizes, plus great competition—all in a professionally-run tournament atmosphere—look no further than the Cabela’s Masters Walleye Circuit.

Since 1984, the Cabela’s MWC has set the standard for team walleye tournament fishing. Each season, we visit the finest walleye fisheries at peak fishing times to give our MWC teams the best possible experience during pre-fishing and competition.

Plus, MWC events are more than two- or three-day tournaments. Many teams arrive early for pre-fishing and experience a week or more of great walleye action while fine-tuning their patterns and exploring the wonderful host communities. And because camaraderie is an MWC hallmark, you’ll also enjoy getting to know other MWC teams. This is not just a Circuit, it’s a family. Even though the competition is intense and the stakes are high, our teams share a common bond in their passion for walleye fishing, and many of our anglers form friendships that last a lifetime.

Another great benefit is the MWC’s proven team format—which lets you share all the fun (and expenses) with your favorite fishing partner as you compete for nearly a $1 million in cash and prizes and well over 100% payback in cash and prizes each season, with great contingency cash and prizes from our valued sponsors and a no-entry-fee, World Walleye Championship for the season’s top finishers, the MWC offers excellent odds of cashing some serious checks.

MWC Making A Difference

Fisheries conservation and teaching kids to fish are cornerstones of the Cabela’s Masters Walleye Circuit foundation. And each season, our MWC Conservation Fund and Youth and Family Fishing Clinics help make the walleye world a better place.

Since 1984, the MWC Conservation Fund has generated more than $350,000 for fisheries conservation projects in states where our tournaments are held. Monies are derived from a $15-per-boat contribution from the MWC and the anglers, and distributed to state fisheries agencies, walleye clubs, and other community organizations.

To encourage the next generation of anglers, the Cabela’s MWC holds a Youth and Family Fishing Clinic at each tournament. MWC anglers and representatives of the NPAA volunteer their time to teach kids and their parents about fishing. The MWC and our sponsors also donate products—including rods, reels and tackle—to help get these budding anglers’ fishing careers off to a great start.

By fishing the Cabela’s MWC, you’ll help both of these wonderful programs make a difference in the future of walleye fishing!
