Anglers can learn how to polish their salmon and trout fishing techniques from the experts in the 2018 Winter Salmon School in Kewaunee. The educational event being held on February 3rd at Accurate Marine will host regional experts Captain Dan Keating from Winthrop Harbor, 35-year veteran and author and Captain Arnie Arredondo, prominent charter captain and multi-tournament champion, as well as local angler authority Captain John Pollock. The program is full at 100 participants but a wait list is available. Merrick Malach, owner of the sponsoring Blue Door Tournament Series and board member of the Algoma-Kewaunee Great Lakes Sport Fishermen Club, says that the decrease in salmon in these waters has prompted them to include tips and tricks to get trout in the boat.
Malach notes that the Algoma-Kewaunee Great Lakes Sport Fishermen Club works to increase salmon numbers with the care of salmon net pens, a new age trial stocking system for Lake Michigan. There are two net pens in Kewaunee and the club is looking to put one in Algoma in the Ahnapee River in the spring.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
