Blue Water Classic
This is Michigan's largest classic salmon tournament.  This tournament is held in May each year.  The tournament's success is the direct result of over a hundred volunteers and a variety of businesses in several counties who donate equipment and donations (both monetary and/or otherwise) to make this one of the best tournaments in the state of Michigan.
