Salmon tournament this weekend means more local money

You should be on the lookout for additional anglers in the area this weekend as the start of the 39th Annual Kewaunee Door Salmon Tournament is this Friday.

This is the largest summer fishing tournament on the Great Lakes and it attracted a record of over 3,300 anglers last year, according to founder and co-organizer Jerry MacMillin.  He says the impact on the economy is significant because these fishermen come from all over the Midwest to participate in the event. 



The nine-day tournament runs from this Friday through July 31.  Over $50,000 in prize money is awarded, including a first-place $10,000 cash prize with a free mounting of the winning salmon and a customized ring. You can find more information about the 39th Annual K-D Salmon Tournament here on the podcast page.
