PMTT Adjusts Schedule For 2020

The Professional Musky Tournament Trail has revised its schedule in order to have a full tournament slate.

Having postponed its Vitaminerals Spring Shootout at Cave Run Lake, Kentucky, in April due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the PMTT announced Tuesday it still plans to hold three qualifiers and its championship this year.

“In an effort to keep as many of the same dates and locations along with working with our incredible host site sponsors, we were able to make it happen with only one date change,” said PMTT Director Tim Widlacki. “We are basically changing the Chippewa Flowage into the third qualifier and making Cave Run Lake the championship in October.”

Widlacki said the PMTT plans to meet all safety guidelines when dealing with COVID. “We understand that these will change as the year goes on and could also change slightly from state to state. We have several plans already outlined and in place for registration, updates and awards meetings,” he explained.

The PMTT will now kick off its season June 27-28 with Mercury Marine's Summer Challenge on the Eagle River Chain near Eagle River, Wisconsin.

The circuit will then fish the Spirit & Okoboji Chain of Lakes in Iowa August 29-30 for Musky Hunter Magazine’s Late Summer Showdown. The third qualifier will now be on the Chippewa Flowage near Hayward, Wisconsin, September 26-27.

Cave Run Lake will be the site for the Ranger Boats World Championship on October 23-25.

“We will keep everyone updated in a timely manner through emails, social media and our website,” Widlacki said. “We cannot answer hypothetical questions at this time because there are simply too many variables.”
