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.

George H.W. Bush and his new go-fast fish boat


Former President George H.W. Bush, whose 38-foot Fountain center console grounded during the summer, recently took delivery of a new boat.

Fidelity IV ran aground July 12 on Gooch’s Beach in Kennebunkport, Maine. The 86-year-old Bush was returning to the Kennebunk River in heavy fog with several family members aboard when the boat grounded about 3 p.m., according to local media reports, which did not indicate who was at the helm. No one was injured, but the boat reportedly had minor damage.

Bush’s new boat, Fidelity V, is a Fountain 38CC. With its triple 300-hp Mercury Verado 4-strokes, the high-performance center console can reach 75 mph. Bush will use the boat to fish for striped bass and bluefish off Maine.
