Sandusky looks to hook more fishing tournaments

Victoria Kurt and Amanda Smith Rasnick don't go fishing themselves, but that hasn't stopped them from reeling in big fishing tournaments and bringing them to Sandusky.

Kurt, the City of Sandusky's recreation program supervisor, said Monday she hopes to bring seven fishing tournaments to the city in 2013. 

"That would be an increase from the five tournaments the city hosted in 2012 and from the three to five the city has averaged in recent years," she said. "Our main reason is to boost tourism and bring people in to the Sandusky area, downtown Sandusky."
