2014 METRO TOURNAMENT RESULTS

The 18th annual Metro Muskie Tournament had 486 entrants competing on 27 of the best muskie fishing lakes in the Twin Cities Metro area. June 14, 2014 brought the most volatile weather this event has ever witnessed with gusts of wind up to 68 mph, white-out rain squalls, extreme lightning events and "no wake" high water restrictions. There were numerous capsized sail boats on Minnetonka, White Bear and Bald Eagle - with the Sheriff's Patrol approaching contestants to leave the water on many of the lakes. Most of the fish registered were caught prior to 10 am when lightning put most of the fish down for the day. There was no dominant lake this year, with the top 7 spots being divided among 7 different lakes.

The 2014 tournament champion was Mathew Buck. His pattern emerged early when he caught a 40.5" fish in the wind-blown shallows of Bald Eagle on a black and orange Magnum Shallow Bull Dawg worked erratically. His wife Jessica netted yet another 41" muskie at 12:45 with the same tactic.

Junior contestant Louie Love was one of the youngest champions, catching a 45" Bald Eagle fish at 7:30, throwing a small gold minnow bait to the shallows. He and his uncle were able to shore-land the fish in under 5 minutes without a net.

Mike Bailey took the "big fish" honors as well as 2nd place with a White Bear 49-incher. This fish was fooled into hitting a chrome Crave crankbait on the outside edge of the deep weed line at 8:15, just prior to the arrival of the hurricane force winds. Daniel Kelly took 3rd place with a 48" Minnetonka giant at 8:30. He chose a blue and silver Jackpot fished inside of the shallow weed edge and his wife helped him net, measure and photogragh the beautiful fish.

4rd place Jason Zeman also capitalized on the massive feeding spree that occurred across the metro area between 8:15-8:45. At 8:40 he connected with a 47" Eagle Lake muskie on a walleye Monster Lure Squirko fished over the deep weeds. Tim Gardner secured 5th place with a 47" that hit a perch Willey Bait speed trolled in the prop wash on Forest Lake. Richard Graf's 6th place 45" tiger tied the all-time largest event hybrid from 1998. His Lake Elmo fish hit a purple bucktail with a gold blade in the tournament's first 45 minutes. Marc Starr landed in 7th place on a brown and yellow Mepps bucktail on Lake Independence at 2:10.
