Al happened during the 24th Baileys Harbor brown trout Tournament. In what some are calling a single tournament record, two anglers brought in 31-plus-pound trout to the scales. In the end, Jim Dequaine took the more than $1,500 prize back for landing a 31.9-pound brown trout. This to the chagrin of Ryan Tanck who just missed the prize with his 31.2-pounder.
The tournament is to support the Baileys Harbor Community Association, and is held in the waters in Door and Kewanuee Counties in Wisconsin, including Washington Island, no more than 5 miles offshore in Lake Michigan.
