  1. Congrats to team Thrillseeker, the winner of the 2016 Lake Ontario challenge cup. They put together a very impressive day 2 box to hold off cold steel for the win.
  2. On behalf of the tournament committee I would like thank everyone who participated last week. Congrats to the winners: Shark Tank and Roll With It, who put together very impressive catches despite the challenging conditions. We would also like to thank our very gracious sponsors who help make everything possible: Captain Jacks, Atommik, Co-op deck, Krenzer Marine, Northshore Oil, Arney’s, Pit stop, Pelican, Lake Ontario United and Bay Street Tavern. We will continue to keep the rules the same along with the dates (July 15 & 16, 2017), for the sake of consistency. Once again thanks to everyone who participated and we look forward to seeing everyone again next year!!
  3. Two teams have emerged as the favorite leading into the last day. Thrillseeker currently had 754 and cold steel has 744. With one day left, the bonus points for the win could decide who the winner is!
  4. We have a close race heading into the final leg of the cup. At this point the top three teams are neck and neck with Thrillseeker at 658, cold steel/dirty goose at 642 and oh baby at 637. Rumor has it that after the big wind Sunday the fish have moved into the Sodus area and should make for a very entertaining final. We will update cup points before teams head out on the water Sunday to see where teams stand leading into the final day.
  5. We are just 4 short weeks away from the start of the Sodus Point pro/am. Just a quick reminder that teams need to have their entries in/post marked by july 1st to be entered in the early bird drawing, which will be drawn at the captains meeting. We have a steady flow of entries coming in and we’ve already seen a handful of new teams which is exciting to see. The way things are looking we will see the biggest am participation in the past 7 years! Also, we are shaping up to see an increase in participation for the 4th straight year since we took over. We look forward to seeing everyone soon. Have questions, use the contact us tab on our website or email me at [email protected] 2016 Dates: 1K/Day : July 13th-17th Captain Jacks Shootout: July 15th Captains meeting: July 15th, 6pm at the Sodus Point fire hall Krenzer Marine 3 Fish Challenge: July 16th & 17th Divisional Bracket: July 16th & 17th Main Event: July 16th & 17th
  6. Pete, As long as the team remains the same or the boats your using is declared ahead of time your good to go. Also if a team has a mechanical issue I don't foresee the committee saying you can't fish, just need to communicate your issue to us
  7. Payment for the cup will be kept low this year at $100, the hope is to keep costs low to get as many teams as possible to enter and get consumed in the chase. All teams need to have their money in by Friday before teams leave the dock, I have offered to house the money for the committee and will pay it out to the winners at the Sodus event. We still have hope to nail down a substantial sponsor soon. To say thanks for all the teams entered and for including Sodus in the Cup again, The Sodus committee will throw a special event for all the cup teams that should add some excitement and a chance for extra cash. It is something new and creative that all the teams should enjoy. Rules will be kept relatively simple: each team will be limited to two boats, The captain will have to be on the boat for all three tournaments or three of its team members. Payouts as of now will go to the top two boats, Any questions give us a shout and we will see everyone soon!
  8. We appreciate the heads up.... after playing around with things tonight I believe I fixed it
  9. For now use Sodusproam.com, the other site should be up by tomorrow, I'm being told that there can be a couple days before changes take effect
  10. people were still using the old site so over the past few weeks we bought the old one and linked it with the new one causing a brief down time, but everything is now up and running and entry forms are available online, sorry for the inconvenience
  11. RD I think you hit it on the head, do what brings you success and take advantage of each hit and you guys will do fine. The Lake Erie boys have been doing great for a number of years on the west end, and I'm sure once you experience this event you guys will be hooked
  12. The Sodus Point Pro/Am hopes everyone had a good holiday. Over the next couple months we will be busy getting everything together for what’s shaping up to be a very exciting year. As always we strive to provide anglers a unique experience with multiple ways to compete during your time in Sodus. This year we are excited to announce another way for teams to compete for an additional $1000. During the two days of the main event, we will host the Krenzer Marine three fish challenge. For teams not familiar with this style tournament, the object is to weigh 3 fish in 2 days with the heaviest 3-fish catch winning. The uniqueness of the 3 fish challenge is that it calls for strategy as teams can elect to weigh any number of their 3 tournament fish on day 1, however any fish weighed and counted on day 1 cannot be exchanged for a bigger fish caught on day 2. The best part of the Three Fish Challenge is that it will be absolutely FREE. The Dates will be as followed: Entry for free tournament drawing: Registration must be post marked by July 1st 1K/Day: July 13th-17th Captain Jack’s Shootout: July 15th Captain and Observer Meeting: July 15th 6 pm at the Sodus Point Firehouse Sodus Point Pro/Am: July 16th-17th Krenzer Marine Three Fish Challenge: July 16th-17th
