TEAM STARCRAFT racks up another win on the Cabelas MWC Circuit!
SOO SWEET! TEAM STARCRAFT pro team members Joe and John Giuliani win again going back to back in 2011 and 2012 in the Soo.
The Cabelas MWC (Masters Walleye Circuit) Trail finished up the second to last qualifier this past weekend for 2012 in Sault Ste. Marie Michigan on the St. Mary’s River system. Just like last year Team Starcraft once again had a huge showing this past weekend on the St. Mary’s River system. For the second year in a row the veteran team of two brothers from Sault Ste. Marie Ontario Joe and John Giuliani made history knocking down the win again this year just as they did in 2011 on this system. This is only the second time in MWC that this has been done on the same body of water by the same anglers back to back years. Joe Giuliani said, "This win is very special! This is quite an accomplishment being able to win this tournament back to back on our home water against such an incredibly talented field of anglers."
Joe and John competed out of their Starcraft Starfish 176 boat powered by an Evinrude 150 ETEC and came in with a total winning weight of 36.74 lbs for a two day event with just nine fish of which 4 came on day one and a five fish limit on day two to dominate the field winning be more than 10 lbs over the second place team. These guys are the cream of the crop for anglers on this river system and always one of the home town favorites. They have won numerous local tournaments here in the past but this is special having done it back to back years according to Joe. It is truly amazing how many Starcraft boats are on this system dating from present day all the way back to the 60’s. Salmon fisherman, walleye fisherman, perch fisherman, you name it. There are Starcraft boats everywhere. Joe cannot say enough about the impact AJ from R&R Marine in Sault Ste. Marie has had on Starcraft Boats in this region and he is proud to be on his pro staff representing Starcraft Marine and R&R Marine.
Starcraft had four boats finish in the top ten this year led by Joe and John Giuliani from Soo Ontario. The team of Derek Myerscough and John Synett from Sault Ste Marie fishing out of their Super Fisherman 186 with a 150 ETEC finished in third place. Kal Ustishen and his father Rick finished in fifth place fishing out of their STX 206 Viper with a Mercury 250 Pro XS. Long time pro and past World Walleye champion Jeff Manz out of Vanderbilt Michigan and Gary Gorsuch from Sault Ste. Marie finished up in ninth place out of their Starcraft STX 2050 powered by a Mercury 250 Pro XS.
What a great showing once again on the St. Mary's for the Starcraft Team. Once again, great job to all the anglers and Team Starcraft crew on their finishes for this event. Check out the link below from the MWC website on the Giuliani brothers win and final standings. This event was also filmed for airing this fall on the NBC Sports network on a Cabelas MWC television program to be announced at a later date. With the Cabelas MWC coming back to the Soo in 2013 for another qualifier and the NTC can you sense the possibility of a HAT TRICK in the making. Back to back is special. If anyone has a shot to make it three in a row I think the brothers Giuliani are the odds on favorites. Check out link below to the Masters Walleye Circuit for more info. Big Water? Bring it on!
