The Muskie Country Tournament Circuit™ (MCTC™) hosted two one day tournaments on Bone Lake June 8th followed by a one day qualifier on the Wapogasset Lake, Sunday the 9th of June. Although neither body of water muskie action was “on fire”, Bone Lake had that better weather and thus the better fishing results with two muskies over 34 inches registered, but Lake Wapogasset tournament coincided with an endless driving rain made for difficult fishing conditions and zero muskies over 34 inches.

The Muskie Country™ Bone Lake tournament started off promising with the first muskie being registered just twenty minutes into the contest at 6:20am when the team of Courtney Sell and Jordan Klingbeil scored on the biggest muskie of the day with a 38.75 incher. The next muskie would come eight hours later at 2:20pm when Matt Eiden and Clint Zack tallied a 38.25 inch fish.

The MCTC™ Bone Lake qualifying event's top two finishers were;
1st - Courtney Sell/Jordan Klingbeil
2nd - Matt Eiden/Clint Zack

Sunday's tournament on Wapogasset Lake wouldn't be a battle between the competitors and the mighty muskie, but between the anglers and the elements in the form of heavy driving rains that made the fishing extremely difficult at best. No muskies over 34 inches would be landed by any of the competitors although a high number of muskies under thirty four inches would be captured and released. The winners and the second place finishers of the Muskie Country™ Wapogasset Lake qualifiers was then determined by a draw.

2nd - Matt Eiden/Clint Zack
The next WMT Series™ qualifying tournament is the Pro-MAC™ Muskie Masters Open™ on the Lake Namakagon Chain in Clam Lake this June 22nd and 23rd. The tournament is open to the public to fish and still has open spots, but there is still time to send in your entries to get an earlier starting position. We will also be accepting entries the Friday night before the event on June 21st at Lakewoods Resort on the south shores of Lake Namakagon off HWY M from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. The Muskie Masters Open™ on the Namakagon Chain is a special tournament in that it is a prelude to muskie fishing's most prestigious tournament, the 2013 WMT Series™ Invitational Championship™ that will be held on the same waters at the end of September the 28th and 29th. The top fifty of the Pro-MAC™ teams and the top fifty Muskie Country™ teams will square off at the 2013 Championship to compete for a possible top prize of $80,000.00. This June's Pro-MAC™ qualifier is sure to be a great event affording the competitors with a lot of excitement and fun and will be a valuable introduction for anglers who are new to the waters looking to do well in September too.

The next Muskie Country™ double header weekend will be on the Pike/Round Lake Chain Saturday, June 29th and Sunday, June 30th on Squirrel Lake. There are still open spots for both events and a team looking to enter the tournament can do so by attending the Friday night registration, June the 28th at the Moose Jaw Resort on the west shoreline of Round Lake starting at 5:30pm to 7:30pm. Also, if you are looking to just register for the Squirrel Lake qualifier, the registration will be held also at Moose Jaw Resort Saturday the 8th starting at 6:00pm to 6:30pm.
