I was in Door Co fishing out of Sturgeon Bay in July 1994. I saw an 18 year old boy take a 44lb 15oz King Salmon before the KD tournament started. That fish still holds the Wis. State record to this day ! That was the 1st fish he had ever caught on Lake Michigan ! Another 40 lb fish was caught during the tournament that year, but that fisherman did not have a tournament ticket ! There are alewives up the ying yang this year , and the King Salmon are gobbling them up like crazy . With the cut back in stocking Kings this year ,these kings are putting on the lbs. That 25 year old record just might get broken this year !
I’ll be a gambler baby! Lay down the bet!!!
Wrong by a day. Started on Friday and last day is Saturday. Different than previous years.
The current KD salmon tournament leader fish is 36.70 lbs 40 inch. There are 10 other fish registered over 30 lbs so far after 4 days in the 9 day tournament ! Over 50 fish have been registered so far over 25 lbs ! Don't be surprised if a 40 lb+ fish takes the $10,000 1st prize this year !
