MadWags Memorial Members Bass Fishing Tournaments
Spring & Fall Events Open to All Members of GreatLakesBass.com

2011 Fall MadWags Memorial members' tournament west Big Ugly winner TheFishinPollock fished with first-time tournament angler – his Mom – on Skegemog Lake when he retrieved a Greenwing Teal shot by one of the many hunters out banging away on opening weekend. Since no one else brought anything in, he was awarded the Big Ugly prize after Mom reported his is a good son!

TheFishinPollock pulled off 
something new to the GreatLakesBass.com members' tournaments when he won the Big Ugly award on Skegemog Lake October 2, 2011 with a non-fish species 
capturing a Greenwing Teal duck

Next Event:  Spring MadWags 2013, May 11 / Lake St. Clair – Details »

The MadWags Memorial Members Tournament (formerly DK Open) is a bi-annual bass tournament open to all GreatLakesBass.com members. Boaters and nonboaters are randomly paired up to fish as a team for the day. The Spring MadWags Memorial East is a paper tournament on Lake St. Clair! The Fall MadWags Memorial West is held on the west side of Michigan at different lakes. The primary purposes of the MadWags Memorial events are for members to meet while doing what we all love best, and to honor the memory of a favorite member - MadWags - who passed away unexpectedly March 8, 2011! Visit the MadWags Memorial message board for full details and to join in!
