Anglers tried their hardest to get out onto the water Thursday morning as the 30th annual Baileys Harbor Brown Trout got underway. Many boat launches along the Door and Kewaunee County shoreline had to be dug out by marina personnel and volunteers because they were frozen over due to Winter Storm Evelyn and cold temperatures. Baileys Harbor Community Association coordinator Brynn Swanson says despite the worries of getting on the water, anglers have been looking forward to what for many is the first fishing event of the year.
Anglers can buy tickets to be a part of the tournament for their chance to win $7,000 in prizes through the end of the day on Friday. The Baileys Harbor Brown Trout Tournament ends on Sunday.
