Master's Walleye Circuit hosts youth clinic at Stony Point
CASS LAKE -- The final stop in the 2013 Cabela's Masters Walleye Circuit (MWC) fishing series will be Friday Sept. 13 to Sunday Sept. 15 on the Cass Lake Chain.
The event will be based out of Stony Point Resort in Cass Lake and the anglers will hit the water at 8 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. Sunday is reserved as the tournament's final fishing day if bad weather prevents the anglers from launching their boats either Friday or Saturday.
The first flight of boats will return to the weigh-in area at Stony Point Resort at 4 p.m. each day.
Following Friday's weigh-in the tournament organizers are hosting a free youth and family fishing clinic at the weigh-in area. The first 50 youngsters who attend will receive a free fishing rod and reel combo and a t-shirt. The clinic is designed to be a fun and educational of aquatic invasive species, fish identification and boat safety.
The Cass Lake Chain winning team will receive $15,000 while second place is worth $6,400. The payouts continue through 20th place.
Each team may weigh five walleyes and the minimum size is 15 inches. Minnesota laws allow for one fish per angler to measure 20 inches or over so each two-man boat is allowed two fish of that size.
In addition to Cass Lake the anglers may fish Buck, Andrusia, Big Wolf, Kitchi and Pike Bay.
The public is invited to the weigh-ins and youngsters are encouraged to attend the fishing clinic.
