Salmon-A-Rama is back

Welcome back, Salmon-A-Rama.

After three years as "The Big Fish Bash," Racine's largest annual fishing competition is returning to its original name. The move is part of the competition's transition back to a focus on fishing, and away from a festival with entertainment.

This year's Salmon-A-Rama features a $10,000 top prize and $250 per day for the largest "featured" fish.

The contest will be run by Salmon Unlimited Wisconsin, a Racine-based organization dedicated to the betterment of Lake Michigan, its fishing, tributaries and shoreline.
