Tournament season making comeback

There’s growing optimism for fishing tournaments on the peninsula’s world class fishing waters in 2021. The hope is that tournaments, like the upcoming Sturgeon Bay Bass fishing tournament that begins on May 7th, can be closer to normal this year. Tournament director Gary Nault, made it known that COVID19 mitigation measures will still be in effect. One change that will carry over from last year and perhaps permanently, is weighing fish on the water. 



A positive for the fish is that this change keeps them from being relocated to a spot where they weren’t caught.


A busy month of May is also in the plans, with another bass tournament the following weekend. A big event is a National Walleye tournament which will launch from Sawyer Park during Memorial Day week, starting on May 27th. The tournaments will also help the community with an influx of visitors and tourism dollars. 



Nault also mentioned the publicity Sturgeon Bay and Door County would get, as some tournaments are recognized nationally.
