  1. We still have some seats available, but the room is filling up. For those that don't know, our main website is offline (problem on our web hosting service's end), but registrations can take place at our backup site http://www.lotsa1.org Tim.
  2. Now perhaps it was just hearsay, but I was always under the impression that these carp need big, free flowing rivers at least 50 miles long for their eggs to successfully gestate and hatch. That is why they do so well in the Mississippi River system (and tributary rivers). Rivers of those dimensions and characteristics are few and far between in the Great Lakes Basin, so even when they get here, I'm not sure that they will be able to reproduce significantly. Perhaps my information is wrong, but if that is in fact, the case, this "crisis" may be overblown. Don't sell the boats just yet guys, this situation is far from played out. Tim
  3. OK The alternate site http://www.lotsa1.org is now updated and functional. We are able to take Salmon School Registrations and LOTSA Marketplace Table Registrations at that address. Tim
  4. Our LOTSA website went down yesterday evening. I don't know how long that will be down, I'll have the alternate site at lotsa1.org up to date and fully functional this evening. My apologies for any difficulties this glitch may have caused.
  5. Yeah, but as a sterile hybrid, their populations are more easily controlled.
  6. Guys, This is going out, or has already gone out to the media via Bill Hilts and Niagara Co tourism. Very nice write up and after a couple powwows with our presenters, I think this is shaping up to be one of the best Schools we've ever hosted. Check it out. Don't wait too long we're already well over half full and I wouldn't be surprised if we sell out before too much longer. The registrations close at 150 people. http://nysowa.org/salmon-school-gives-in-depth-training-at-greater-niagara-fishing-outdoor-expo/ Tim

  8. Bags aren't bad once you get the ropes adjusted properly.
  9. Yes you can. Probably overkill, but since walleye are no fun to catch anyway......
  10. Also check out the theead on here about the salmon school hotel. Quality Hotel and suites has rooms for $58 a night and is literally across the street from the event center.
  11. Pap, apart from the Salmon School there are over a hundred free 1 hour seminars pretty much running continually throughout the three days of the show, on a wide variety of topics. The seminar schedule is listed on the expo's website.Tim
  12. Yes, right across the street from the Event Center.
  13. I just did the same for the same rate. I've stayed at this hotel the past several years and have had no complaints at all. Plus the ladies behind the hotel bar are smoking hot Tim
  14. Sorry for the late announcement on this guys, I've been crazy busy lately. On Saturday January 23rd the Lake Ontario Trout & Salmon Association (LOTSA) is once again hosting its Salmon School. This highly successful School, in its 9th year, boasts six hours of instruction taught by three expert Charter Captains; Pete Alex (Vision Quest-Port of Wilson, NY), Pete Lahosky (Prime Time-Port of Oswego, NY) and George Freeman (Free Style Charters-Port of Ludington, MI). These three Captains have very successful Charter businesses along with a proven tournament track record of high placement over many years. They are a much diversified set of instructors and will provide a class full of insights and details that no one single instructor would be able to provide. They are all skilled educators with significant experience giving Seminars over the years. Each brings their own unique set of skills and knowledge to the class. Given the depth of the knowledge base of these instructors and their proven ability to educate Anglers, we expect this School to be the most comprehensive, in depth, information packed event ever presented at the LOTSA Salmon School. for more information and to register for the School, please visit the LOTSA Website at www.lotsa.org
  15. no, it is completely relative and you need to figure out what the numbers are on the unit you are running. The actual speed is very likely not what any of them are displaying, but the number itself is irrelevant as long as you can repeat the number that is catching fish. If you are getting speed data from someone with a FH and you run a Moor or DR, you will be screaming way too fast if you try to match their reported speed. Tim
  16. Without getting into a biology/genetics lesson, Eggs from Alaskan fish won't work. There's a reason the Tule Strain of Chinooks from the Columbia River Basin were selected for the Great Lakes.
  17. I always look for 42 deg for the bottom of my spread. Everything else is above that, but i always have at least one line down in the ice water. Most of my bigger kings over the years have come out of the cold water. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. Odd, they've been very responsive every time I contacted them. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. X2 torpedo diver swivels are awesome. Tim
