Now it starts.  Too much to keep up with in Wisconsin, and that is one nice problem for an outdoorsman. OWO Columnist Wayne Morgenthaler and his son Neal spelled double trouble for two Richland County gobblers after four days of not filling tags. We put the May-June issue of On Wisconsin Outdoors to bed last week with 100,000 copies being distributed statewide. Look for your copy at any Kwik Trip statewide…that’s 400 stores ...

    It’s not over until it’s over, and it’s over — almost. All that separates the more than 150 prizewinners from cashing in on the 31st annual Kewaunee/Door County Salmon Tournament is Monday’s wrap-up meeting. On the final day, Baileys Harbor weighed a dozen fish larger than 20 pounds, Sturgeon Bay 11, Kewaunee 10, Algo...

    Day 8 Results — Saturday, July 27, 2013 A strong cold front didn’t hurt the fishing Saturday, Day 8 of the 31st annual Kewaunee/Door County Salmon Tournament. In fact, 59 20-pound-plus chinooks were weighed, eight of them big enough to move into the top 30. Baileys Harbor stayed hot, with sixteen 20-pound-plus fish, including a pair o...

    Day 7 Results — Friday, July 26, 2013 Bouncy seas, heavy downpours and threatening skies reduced fishing pressure Friday, but that didn’t stop K/D contestants from adding another 26 20-pound-plus fish the tournament scales.

    Day 5 Results — Wednesday, July 24, 2013 A day after strong winds limited participation, anglers were back out in force and quickly made up for lost time with the most big fish in any single day yet this tournament — 63 20-pound and larger chinooks. Baileys Harbor led the way with an incredible 25 fish between 20 and 25.78 pounds. St...

    Day 4 Results — Tuesday, July 23, 2013 Strong winds roughed up Lake Michigan and limited action at most ports.

    Day One Results — Saturday, July 20, 2013 What Kewaunee and Door County anglers are lacking in numbers of salmon reeled in this year, they’re making up for in size. Just a year after only one 20-pound-plus chinook was put to scale opening day — and 14 in the entire nine-day tournament — 33 20-pound-plus “kings” ...
