Niagara Pro-Am May 19-21 – Three Day Bash with over 100 percent payback and $10K-plus extra cash!
The 33rd Annual Lake Ontario Pro-Am Salmon Team Tournament remembering the late Skip Hartman of Olcott will be held again this year out of the ports of Wilson and Olcott in Niagara County, showcasing the spring fishery with the May 19-21 dates. This year’s version will once again be focused on one weekend – but offering three full days of fishing (if Mother Nature allows). Last year’s winner, Capt. Greg Gehrig of Oswego and the Shark Tank team, won $29,000 – the most ever for a single tournament payout in Niagara. The Pro Division will return to its roots this year with only a Classic Division of your best 12 tournament-legal fish. The competition will be fierce under a set of tight regulations and the use of observers. Best box each day wins $1,000 cash; the overall winner for the three days will be competing for the Niagara Cup and a check for $10,000. In the Amateur Open class, best three fish for the day will earn the top prizes – with expanded fishing time and no charter captains allowed. Each day is a separate contest; best two days win the Am Open Cup and an extra $500. More than 100 percent cash and merchandise payback for the competitors.
