Sail And Power Squadron Fishing Contest Set For Saturday

The Duluth Sail and Power Squadron’s 9th annual Captain’s Platter Fishing Contest will be held from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The event drew more than 160 participants last year and provides awards in four divisions: lake trout, walleye chinook salmon and coho salmon. This is a Lake Superior and/or St. Louis River basin contest.

In addition, the DSPS will be offering free Vessel Safety Checks to those who wish to have their boats inspected. They will be checked for the appropriate necessary equipment for operating vessels on Lake Superior and the St. Louis River basin. The safety checks are part of a national program in partnership with the US Coast Guard Auxiliary.

The Tournament headquarters is at the Duluth Sail and Power Squadron Dock in Allouez Bay (44th Ave East and the Superior Bay). Entry fee is $15 a person for adults and it’s free for kids 15 and under. Tickets and rules available at Marine General, Bait Box, Fisherman’s Corner, Northwest Outlet, or at the Squadron Dock Friday June 7th.
