You know those other fish people fish for in derbies, the ones with the teeth? Wall-somethings? Well, a particular wall-something tournament was recently certified by the Guinness folks as the world’s biggest.
Some details, according to this blog:
> Last June 5-6, 714 anglers squared off [in] a combination of the Cabela’s National Team Championship (NTC) and MWC’s [Masters Walleye Circuit] Lake Winnebago Central Division Qualifier.
> The event featured 358 teams, all but two of which were two-person teams.
> The NTC is one of the most prestigious competitions in the country. Teams qualify by accumulating points in local tournaments organized by more than 50 sanctioned grassroots walleye clubs. Now in its 26th season, the Cabela’s MWC is the longest-running professional walleye tournament circuit in the United States.
> “This is a great honor,” said MWC senior events coordinator Dan Johnson. “The event was a huge team effort by Cabela’s, circuit staff, volunteers and local organizers.”
Can’t bassers beat the toothy-critter folks?
