Congratulations to Carver and all the Winners, and commiserations to all the Anglers who didn’t quite make the final ten places. This was a very challenging, technical fishing weekend, with many Anglers catching lots of fish below the minimum weight limit of 18-0.
A Big Thanks to Vicki, Joe, Jeff, Molly, and the Kewaunee Chamber Volunteers who helped the Anglers throughout the weekend. Thanks also to Adam Schumacher and his Weigh Officials Team. Lastly, thanks to Kunkles Korner Restaurant and the Waterfront Bar & Grill for looking after the Anglers morning & evening, and to all the business sponsors and spectators who supported this event throughout the weekend.
