World record: Largest fishing tournament – Stray Casts

 

A dual tournament of epic proportions made a splash in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, last June 5-6 when 714 anglers squared off for more than $350,000 in cash and prizes. Today, that effort has officially been recognized by Guinness World Records as history’s largest fishing tournament.

A combination of the Cabela’s National Team Championship (NTC) and MWC’s 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.
