Anglers Compete in K/D Salmon Tournament

KEWAUNEE COUNTY, WI - The K/D Salmon Tournament is well underway, but there's still some time to get in on the action.

There are more than $50,000 in prizes to be won, but the biggest and baddest salmon will net one lucky angler $10,000.

According to the K/D Salmon Tournament Facebook page, competing anglers must fish Lake Michigan or Green Bay in Wisconsin waters off of Kewaunee or Door counties.  The fish must be caught between 12:01 a.m.  July 17 and July 25.  The final weigh-in is at 9 p.m.  on July 25.  Everyone (age 10 and up) in the boat must have a ticket before fishing; and there must be a ticket-holding witness to a catch.

Get tournament tickets at B&K Bait and Tackle, Jungwirth Ace Hardware in Sister Bay, Baileys 57, JP Express near Carlsville, Howie’s Tackle and Greystone Castle in Sturgeon Bay, Algoma BP and JP Express in Algoma, and Accurate Marine & Tackle and Center Court Convenience in Kewaunee.

Tickets are $25 for the full tournament or $13 for a one-day chance.

FOX 11 News reporter Eric Peterson made the trip to the lakeshore to check out the competition.
