Vandenplas Nets The Prize In 2012
Brian Vandenplas of the Jenny V secured his spot at the top of the Offshore Grand Prize leaderboard when he brought in his 22.37lb Chinook on the last Saturday of the contest, knocking David Slayton and his 20.99lb Lake Trout from the spot he had managed to hold for the majority of the contest
Salmon-A-Rama Slam!Salmon-A-Rama Slam! is a 5-fish only sub tournament that runs the full 9 days of Salmon-A-Rama.
The total weight of your five selected fish will determine the winner with no upgrading to fish so being selective and strategic will be key to success.
This tournament is based on 1 anglers' limit but is tied to the boat. Meaning you can have multiple anglers over the nine day event and still weigh in the fish under that ticket, but you better choose wisely!
Multiple Weigh-In LocationsWe're branching out.
This year there will be 5 (Count'em FIVE) ports spread out along the western cost of Lake Michigan you can register your catch in!
All of the remote ports will be tied into our contest tracking program which means you can see how you placed instantly regardless of where you weigh in, and notifications of your top placing fish will get sent out to everyone following @SUWISCONSIN on Twitter.

Help Preserve Our LaunchPowerloading (Loading your boat by forcefully driving it onto your trailer) causes loose material to be displaced from beneath the ramp weakening it and creating underwater hills that can damage the hull and propeller of other boats.
If you see someone powerloading; explain (politely - it doesn't need to come to fisticuffs.) how they are contributing to the ruination of our boat launch by doing so, and help them if possible load their boat the proper and safe way.
Closing Day Award CeremonyJoin us after the contest wraps up Sunday at 11am at the port of Racine and help us congratulate this years winners.
They won't be the only ones getting stuff though! Bring along your valid contest ticket and you'll be entered in the raffle to win an assortment of prizes from our sponsors.
Last year received rave reviews as our prize committee doled out the prizes to all valid contest ticket holders in attendance.
Salmon-a-rama would like to thank all of the 2012 sponsors for their generous contributions!
Every Fish CountsThat one pound Steelhead may not land you in the top spots of the leaderboard or win you a fabulous prize, but weighting it in still helps the DNR gain pertinent information about our lake's ecosystem, and can alert them to population fluctuations, or other potential problems ahead of time.
