Cheaters Never Prosper in Kewaunee/Door Salmon Tournament

Opening weekend of the Kewaunee/Door Salmon Tournament was tainted by a potential tournament-winning fish that was disqualified after an alarm sounded on the scale. A legitimate 29-pound-plus fish was weighed at 30-plus, but a one-pound lead weight was found, and the angler was disqualified.

Today, there appears to be some concern on how an angler fishing solo could legally catch and weigh a fish. Tournament representatives said they will continue to investigate but so far they have been told he did have a ticket-holding witness in another boat. It is legal for anglers to fish solo in the tourney, but the rules state they must have a ticket-holding witness to the catch.

In terms of the weekend catch, what Kewaunee and Door County anglers are lacking in numbers of salmon reeled in this year, they’re making up for in size. Just a year after only one 20-pound-plus chinook was put to scale opening day — and 14 in the entire nine-day tournament — 33 20-pound-plus “kings” were put into the official database Saturday.

Dozens of “20s” came in Sunday (and at least one “30” that we know of), so the leader board is changing fast.

Entry fee is $25 for the nine-day tournament or $13 for a one-day chance. If taking a charter, be sure all others on the boat — including the captain and first mate — have tickets.

First place is $10,000 cash, a free mount of the winning fish by Scott Mansur’s Northland Taxidermy of Algoma and a custom sterling silver chinook salmon ring with a diamond eye by Paul Spanbauer of Second place is $2,000 cash and a pair of Cannon electric downriggers, and third place is $1,000 cash and a $200 fishing tackle shopping spree at Howie’s Tackle.

In addition to a payout that will go more than 100 places deep, there are daily port prizes worth more than $100 each at all five weigh-in sites in Algoma, Baileys Harbor, Kewaunee, Sturgeon Bay and Washington Island.

Tickets and K/D merchandise are available at Kap’s Marina, 57 Depot, Greystone Castle, Howie’s Tackle, Algoma BP, the Kewaunee Marina and Lakeshore Lighthouse.
