Presented by Lowrance

Ponca City, Okla. — June 7, 2021 — Contestants signed up for the Bass Pro Shops and Masters Walleye Circuit Lake Oahe event out of Mobridge, SD will not only have a chance at a personal best fish, but at one of the most hard-to-find items in the fishing world today. Presented by Lowrance, the June 25-26 tournament will feature a random draw prize for all who signed up, A 60” Lowrance GHOST trolling motor, a $3,469.99 value!

The Mobridge Area Chamber of Commerce welcomes all who want to experience the “Oasis on Oahe” and the incredible fishing it has to offer. Last year’s winners, Josh and Monte Olson, weighed over 41lbs. of fish in two days and the rumor is that could easily be trumped this time. With lots of fish being caught right out in front of the city of Mobridge, anglers will enjoy a short drive from the host hotel, Wrangler Inn, to the launch and out to fish.

The “Team of the Year” and “World Walleye Championship” points race is another important aspect at this event. With a close race in both categories, teams will have the chance to separate themselves with a great finish in Mobridge.

Meyer, Seelow win at Lake Winnebago Presented by Lowe Equipment Attachments

Oshkosh, Wisc. — May 24, 2021 — With the 2021 Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Masters Walleye Circuit heading into its fourth event of the season, many of the 140 anglers at Lake Winnebago had much to fish for; points for Team of the Year, positions for the World Walleye Championship and over $60,000 in cash and prizes. Larsen, Wisconsin residents Corey Meyer and Hunter Seelow both agreed, that what they came to fish for- the trophies.

Presented by Lowe Equipment Attachments, this event saw many teams from the state of Wisconsin with lots of local knowledge of Lake Winnebago, the rivers and upper lake system. Corey and Hunter spent over a week preparing for what turned out to be a grind-it-out fight to the top. When weigh-in came around on Saturday, Hunter had one thing on his mind, hoisting the big beautiful trophy over his head. “The money is great, but I’m just going to spend it, the trophy though, I taking that to the grave with me.”

Fishing a simple jig and leech or crawler, the pair fished the upper lakes along edges of thick cover. They managed to catch a day-one weight of 12-02 securing a lead. “I don’t know that we are going to sleep tonight” said Corey after completing the first day of competition. The following morning, the team set off to their spot in hopes that they could repeat the success they had the previous day. With a camera crew in tow, Meyer and Seelow caught 11-14, enough to give them a lead and win with a total weight of 24-00 and an over 2lbs advantage on second place.

With that weight the duo locked up the $10,200 in cash, a $1000 Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s NTC prize package, the top option-pot check of $3,685, two Okuma fishing reels and of course, the trophies, for a grand total of over $15,000.

Rounding out the top-five remaining teams:

2nd: Brandon & Tom McPeak 21-13, $5,000 cash

3rd: Tom & Mike Kamp 18-03, $3,450 cash and $1,000 Lowrance Bonus

4th:  Jim Erdman & Jeremy Hurst 18-02, $2,550 and Ranger Cup bonus

5th: Michael McCarddle & Michael Yamaguchi 17-10, $2,050 cash and $2,500 option-pot cash

The teams caught 496 fish weighing a total of 832 lbs. 01 oz. during the event. The Berkley Big Fish of the event was 5-08 caught by Brandon and Tom McPeak.

Ponca City, Okla. — May 5, 2021 — The fourth stop for anglers on the 2021 Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Masters Walleye Circuit (MWC) is the expansive Lake Winnebago system, May 21-22, 2021. Wisconsin’s largest inland lake, Lake Winnebago, is just one portion of the system participants are allowed to fish. With Lake Butte des Morts, Lake Poygan the Wolf and Fox River, teams will have lots of options to find the winning fish.   

The Oshkosh Area Convention and Victors Bureau (VisitOshkosh.com) will welcome teams to the area as early as this weekend to begin preparations for the big event. Sports, Sales and Service Manager Jodi Jensema had this to say. “We look forward to Lake Winnebago and the Fox River system to be busy with pre-fishing, and cannot wait for our MWC family to be in Oshkosh!” As with all events safety is key. “One thing that this last year has taught us is that fishing is Covid friendly and this will be a fun and safe event.”

Jeff Kelm, MWC Tournament Director, grew-up only minutes away from Lake Winnebago. “It’s a great place to fish. I just wish that while fishing here years ago I had the Lowrance units these anglers have now. Between searching for fish in the river systems, on the reefs or out in the mud, the anglers will learn a lot about using their electronics to win this event.” Teams with Lowrance’s HDS LIVE, Active Target, Elite FS or Ghost trolling motors will have the opportunity to win an additional $1,000 in Oshkosh and all remaining MWC events in 2021.
