July 15th thru July 22nd!
Salmon-A-Rama was a huge hit this year with many speculating a huge Chinook from up North winning the event, but this was spoiled by Eric Hoffman of Racine with his #30.4 Brown Trout. The fish, caught North of Racine, came at the perfect time and held on for the remainder of the 9 day event for a big pay day. The fish overall had some very impressive weight gain from the last few years, and all divisions shuffled on a regular basis causing for many contestants to have sleepless nights. The total number of fish weighed was 4,984 and this number also was a welcome site as our fishery still shows signs of some great days to be had by anglers. The festival entertainment was a hit as new name bands were brought in, and provided for a great meeting place to tell stories while enjoying a beverage. The food was again hot and ready no matter what time you visited with many raffles, games, and family oriented projects to invite anglers and there families for a day of fun. The Salmon-A-Rama committee would like to thank all of those who participated again this year to help make this one of the greatest tournaments on the Great Lakes. Participation was up in every category except the Kayak category which was on track with last year. This shows we are moving in the right direction building this event back to where it once was. This event is an event that takes a full year to organize, so please feel free to attend a meeting with suggestions on changes you would like to see or ways to improve for future years. I also encourage anglers to thank the committee as there is a very small group that puts this event on, and remember the proceeds are used locally to better the community as a whole.
