The second annual Kewaunee International Carp Championship is being held this weekend. The two-day event already has over 30 anglers from all around the Midwest signed up. Organizer Lee Young who has been involved with international fishing tournaments for over 20 years, says he came to the United States in 2000 and began to get involved with small communities to start catch-and-release carp tournaments.
The competition format is that anglers will weigh their three biggest carp over the two days. Young expects that about 90 pounds will be needed to win. The top ten places will receive trophies and a cash prize. Anglers are assigned a specific position along the Kewaunee Harbor each day and must catch all their fish from that spot. Spectators are welcome and you can find contact information to participate in the Kewaunee International Carp Championship with this story online. Entry Fee is $250 per angler.
