canceled — 2018 MCMI Panfish Tournament

Due to a number of circumstances, we are canceling the Panfish Tournament that was scheduled for 4/28 this year. We may revisit this idea sometime in the future, but this years event had to be canceled.

Milwaukee Chapter of Muskies INC is pleased to announce their first annual MCMI Panfish Tournament.  Think of this an Ice Fisheree with out the ice!!  The goal is a fun day on the water with family and friends with a friendly competition to see who can catch the longest fish of each species and heaviest bag limit.  This tournament will also help curb the panfish overpopulation that is occurring on Pewaukee.  It also coincides with Smokey’s Mistake on the Lake, so grab your new lures for musky season before/after fishing the tournament.  It’s the perfect time to made sure your boat is running and mark up those new weed lines on you GPS!!
