PMTT Day 1 Update

A total of 9 teams caught 12 fish on Day 1 of the First Leg of the Annual 25th Professional Musky Tournament League.  

Some tough conditions for the 25th Anniversary PMTT Spring Cave Run Event, with water levels a few feet “UNDER SUMMER POOL”, for the lowest ever water levels for Spring Cave Run and clear water on top of it, made spring fishing here at Cav e Run a little different than what the anglers are accustomed to.  But the PMTT anglers know how to adjust and change things up to find those elusive fish of 10,000 casts – THE MUSKY!

Day 1 Results

12 Muskies caught with Saturday’s Big Fish at 46.25″ caught by the leading team of Kevin Nash & Jarod Donar where Jared ended up hand landing the beast.  This catch gave them 3 Musky for Day 1 and the lead.  They were the only triple and in second place was a double.  The other 7 teams to catch fish landed singles.  That leaves 80 teams with no catch for the day!  But day 2 kicks off tomorrow morning at 7am.  Stay tuned to the Musky Hunter Magazine Facebook Page or the Professional Musky Tournament – PMTT Facebook page for live updates as they happen!  

Weather tomorrow looks to change a little from today with cooler temperatures, stronger sustained winds and an increase in a chance of rain.  Cloudy with occasional showers for the afternoon.  High near 60 degrees F.  Winds W at 10 to 20 mph sustained.  Chance of rain currently at approximately 50%.

Below is the recap from today and pictures of all 12 catches.  Enjoy the read and view!  

Pictures below are in order from #1 to #9 for reference.
