The Illinois Muskie Tournament Trail participated in the 2013 Chicago Muskie Show on January 11, 12 and 13. The Chicago Muskie Show, the largest show in the U.S. focused on specifically on muskie anglers, was held at Harper College in Palatine, Illinois.
Illinois Muskie Tournament Trail officers and members were at the show to discuss the upcoming 2013 tournament trail along with the IMTT’s fishery support programs including the IMTT Scholarship, the IMTT Youth Fishing program and the organization’s support for the Illinois Muskie Alliance and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. The IMTT held a fundraising raffle at the show to raise additional funds to support these programs.
The 2013 IMTT tournament trail promises to be exciting. We have 13 tournament events on the 2013 trail, including a new event sponsored by the Quad County Hawg Hunters on Lake Evergreen. Once again the IMTT will be offering a special $10,000 cash prize for the largest muskie, 50″ or greater, caught by an IMTT member during one of the 2013 trail tournaments. We appreciated everyone that stopped by our booth.
