Swanda wins sturgeon fishing contest on Yellow Lake
A number of local fishermen took part in the fifth annual sturgeon fishing contest on Yellow Lake in Burnett County on Saturday
Several of the tournament winners were from our area.
New Richmond varsity hockey coach Adam Swanda showed he knows a thing or two about fishing. He caught his first sturgeon and it was a whopper. His catch measured in at 52.5 inches and was the tournament winner. He gets his name on the tournament trophy, the prestigious “Sturgeon Stanley Cup.”
