MINNETONKA, MN – The Cabela’s Masters Walleye Circuit, a popular fishing tournament organized by the North American Fishing Club, landed a whopper on the shores of Wisconsin’s Lake Winnebago system. This whopper was no fish, but instead a world record for the largest fishing tournament ever, according to experts at Guinness World Records. Steve Pennaz, executive director of the North American Fishing Club, reports that 714 anglers participated in the tournament, breaking the previous Guinness World Record by 248 participants. The record-breaking tournament was set when the Cabela’s National Team Championship and the Masters Walleye Circuit Central Division Qualifier where held together.
The Cabela’s Master Walleye Circuit started in 1984, quickly establishing itself as a leading tournament for competitive walleye fishing. The format of the tournament consists of 10 two-day events, leading to cash prizes for the leading fishermen.
Fishing conservation has also come out a winner thanks to the Masters Walleye Circuit. Since 1984, the MWC Conservation Fund has donated more than $300,000 to enhance fisheries in states where the tournaments are held. To learn more about the Masters Walleye Circuit, visit
