EDITOR'S NOTE: WE GOT THIS LETTER FROM JIM FELGENAUER OF ST. CLAIR/DETROIT RIVER STURGEON FOR TOMORROW. I know that some of your readers are interested in where they can catch big fish in Michigan. I thought I would share this with you in case you might agree. This is a great opportunity to catch the fish of a lifetime, have some fun and even win a few bucks. Registration for Michigan's most unique fishing tournament is opening July 16th. The event will be held in Clay Township, Michigan in the waters of the St. Clair River. Resolutions are currently pending in the Michigan Senate and the Michigan House to officially recognize Clay Township as the "sturgeon angling capital of Michigan". This tournament benefits the local community by bringing attention to the very unique and special local resource and opportunities we have in the North Channel of the St.Clair River. Highlighting this great fishery is important to local tourism and recreation. It creates awareness of the importance of working to protect this threatened species that has existed since the age of the dinosaurs. There is nothing like this tournament anywhere else in Michigan and possibly the nation. The event is organized by two great non-profits that reinvest the proceeds to help the local community and the resource. I hope you think that your readers might find this of interest. In recent years there has been much greater awareness of the presence of these iconic fish. People are always thrilled when they see or catch one. If you agree and would like more information I would be happy to arrange for that to happen. Thank you for your time.
