40th K-D Salmon Tournament starts Friday

You will see some local businesses receive an economic boost with the start of the 40th Annual Kewaunee Door Salmon Tournament this Friday. The largest summer fishing tournament on the Great Lakes has attracted over 3,300 anglers in recent years, according to founder and co-organizer Jerry MacMillin. He says generations of families continue to participate in the event which goes back four decades.



The first-ever ten-day tournament runs from this Friday through July 24.   Tournament Coordinator Kevin Naze says the fishing contest offers a huge boon to the area with about half of the anglers from outside the area.



Well over $50,000 in prize money is awarded every year, including a first-place $15,000 cash prize with a free mounting of the winning salmon and a customized salmon ring. You can find more information about the 40th Annual K-D Salmon Tournament here.
