The Professional Muskie Angler Circuit™ (Pro-MAC™) held its second qualifier of the 2011 season on North and South Twin Lakes Monday, May 30th, a one day qualifier that would result in five teams finishing with invites to the Invitational Championship and the largest cash prize ever for a muskie tournament series finally. Stormy weather conditions coupled with cool water temps at 55 degrees, made for a very slow bite as there would be only two legal fish registered for the competition.

The first muskie of the day wouldn't arrive until after noon, when the storms cleared out giving the day a chance to warm up as the water temps increased by a couple of degrees. Rod Fisher and Jim Retzleff would tally the first fish and the largest muskie of the contest with a 40.50 incher at 12:25am, giving the duo the victory a top finish invite to the Championship. Second place would be grabbed by the team of Marty Forman and Seamus Hanly at 1:33pm with a 39.50" muskie. Both muskies would come from South Twin which also held the warmest water for the tournament.

The Pro-MAC™ North and South Twin Lakes qualifying tournament top five finishers were:
1st - Rod Fisher/Jim Retzleff
2nd - Marty Forman/Seamus Hanly
3rd - Rick and Dick Lapp
4th - Jim and Tim Carlson
