Big Lake, Big Prizes, BIG Fish – Lake Oahe – Mobridge, SD
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. To view the current leaders in both “TOY” and WWC” visit the “Results & Standings” page at masterwalleyecircuit.com.
Each MWC event has a lucrative payout which is based on the number of teams entered into that event, and is awarded to 20% of the field, providing more inspiration to sign up and join the fun. In addition, to a hefty check, the first-place team also earns a $1,000 Bass Pro Shops/Cabela’s National Team Championship (NTC) prize package including paid entry, travel stipend, team jerseys and plaques. Additionally, the big-fish pot, option pot and sponsor bonuses of up to $7,000 from Ranger Cup, a $1,000 Lowrance bonus, Okuma Fishing reels, Berkley Fishing Big Fish package, Lowe Equipment Cash up to $500 and T-H Marine Atlas Awards adds more for distribution among the field.
Qualified teams from the 2021 season earning points in at least three qualifiers compete for coveted berths in the 2022 World Walleye Championship, set for October 2021 on the bay of Green Bay in Oconto, WI. Those earning points in at least four qualifiers compete for Team of the Year honors, including a $10,000 sponsorship package and thousands more in cash and prizes to the top 10 teams in the final “best of 4” final standing each year.
