K/D Salmon Tournament Update: Great catch for Alberts

Austin Alberts of Casco caught a 41-inch, 31.11-pound chinook just before sunset at Algoma Saturday to crack the top 5 in the Kewaunee/Door Salmon Tournament.


It hit a fly set about halfway down in 150 feet of water. He was fishing with Chad Alberts and Collin LeGrave. 

Washington Island had 14 over 20 pounds on the scale Saturday, including a 30.61 for Mike Cornell; Baileys had 10 over 20, including Jay Gorton's 26.80. 

Will provide a more complete update later today after tournament officials get Kewaunee's report, but there are more than 25 "kings" larger than 25 pounds on the leader board. That's incredible when you factor in all the time lost to storms and heavy fog off some ports that kept many anglers on shore the past two days.  Buck Felhofer's 33.59 pound catch at Baileys Harbor remains the biggest salmon caught so far in the storm-riddled tournament.

The forecast is calling for a switch to north winds (strongest Sunday night/Monday morning) followed by west winds Tuesday through Thursday.
