K/D Salmon Tournament a family tradition for Kleiman

Having his father in the shop Friday afternoon carried extra meaning for Accurate Marine owner Tom Kleiman, Jr. as he weighed in fish for the opening day of the Kewaunee/Door Salmon Tournament. It was Tom’s dad, Tom, Sr., who helped start the K/D Salmon Tournament over 35 years ago as a way to get anglers from the Milwaukee and Chicagoland areas to head north in search of trophy salmon. Tom, Sr. says after a similar event in Michigan failed, starting  their own tournament made sense.

Accurate Marine is Kewaunee’s tournament weigh-in station for the first time, which carries a significance not lost on Tom, Jr.

Anglers wanting to fish the waters near Kewaunee can still launch from the nearby Salmon Harbor Marina after city officials were forced to close its public ramp earlier this summer. Accurate Marine is one of five weigh-in sites for the K/D Salmon Tournament, which runs through July 27th.
