The 38th Annual Kewaunee Door Salmon Tournament starts this coming Friday and local businesses can expect an economic boost. The largest summer fishing tournament on the Great Lakes has attracted up to 3,000 anglers in the past, according to founder and co-organizer Jerry MacMillin. He says fishing offers a huge boon to the area and the tournament draws people from all around the Midwest.
The nine-day tournament runs until July 25 and includes over $50,000 in prize money including a first-place $10,000 cash prize and mounting of the winning salmon. You can find more information about the 38th Annual K-D Salmon Tournament with the link below.
