  2. Vinny, Your're right! 

     

    The weigh in will be at Bass Pro Shops Niagara 4:pm Friday April 29 and Sat April 30.  This should add excitement and a crowd which in my opinions is missing in our sport.  The catches will be transported there by trailer from St Catharines Marina.

     

    Please join us weather your fishing or not.

     

    All are welcomed!

  3. Gentlemen

    This is an update.  As of April 4 we have increased our field from last by 9,5% and we are still 3 weeks away.
    48 teams signed up and we are excited for this event to start.  

    You have a couple weeks to enter if you havent yet and lets get it to 60!

  6. Well its that time of yr again and I am really excited about the changes The King Of THE LAKE is undertaking. After studying tournaments and where they are going its almost priced a lot of teams out of the game or at least as a fact has made guys amalgamate teams and for these reasons many if not all tournaments were down last yr.

    We are taking a page out of the saltwater sailfish tournaments and we are lowering entry fees and adding separate divisions Take a look and see there is something for everyone.

    The only entry required online is the main event. Everything else is cash at the event. We will accept cheques prior to the cutoff date. Cash will be only way to pay after cutoff date. A soft cut off will be a month ahead of each event. After this date there will be a $100 penalty until one week before the tournament which will be a hard cutoff. This is a "a la carte" type tourney. You pick what division you want to compete in.

    The Venue: St Catharines Marina (Port Weller) where they are going to release the rates for dockage shortly. We are working on a flat fee weekend, weekly and monthly. This way you can tie in other events in order save some money.

    We will have plenty of parking in the complex as well as Fuel. There will be a tent with our trailer in the parking lot just like we used to do 15 yrs ago. You will be able to bring your on beverages to the tent. We will have bbq, pop and water available during weigh ins and registration to fill void if needed.

    you're right! Kevin isn't a bad guy and this is probably a decision that comes with grave difficulty. But the fact that you think if just about the fishing in someones backyard is false. Plans have been made for a long time by many people. I can name a bunch that have to alter plans to participate. The facts are this, level playing field is correct (grid tourney discussed by many for a long time), Less Liability is correct (why should kevin put himself at harm), there are many other things in this decision that are true!! The facts dont stop there, This was discussed many times for a long time in past yr mainly 6 months, Why wait till 10 days prior to the event for this to come out. Is it enough time? For some im sure its plenty and for others maybe not. I guess time will tell but this is by no means a knock on Kevin or the integrity of the event or how hard he works at this.

  9. I spoke with Kevin multiple times since the start of this and there are multiple rule changes coming. The one about if you fish either side you and people on your boat must have both licences. The other is you can fish all open water of Lake Ontario, and I think theres another.

    I think the big issue is change and he is struggling with this. I don't believe for one minute he wants to close the border but there are some issues with going either way. The liability is not one. We could sign a waiver. Observers can be sorted out on Friday at registration. A lot of issues can be resolved but the fact remains that their are many fishermen not observers that can't cross the border themselves because of DUI convictions. That's not just for tournament fishing that's cant cross period and this yr those guys are at a disadvantage.

    Make no mistake that there is NEVER a level playing field in any tournament. I don't buy that!!!! On calm days the faster boat has it, in skinny water a smaller boat has it, on rough days the larger boat has it ect....that's why we buy what we buy for equipment. We choose to fish against local guys as competition. .

    When I hear about no com and how you might go down to make a call to your buddy, are you serious?? If you need to make that call in thin event on a one day tourney you shouldn't fish it. We have no com and it has changed our tourneys for the good for sure. But we allow guys their phones for work related and stuff that is outside fishing. We have never had an issue. Also this rule is no different than fishing with extra rods. You just dint break the rule How many guys smoke weed on board. That's tournament violation under same rule, or how about expired flares or safety stuff all under same rule. This can get soooo ridiculous.

    Bottom line is this in my opinion, it hasn't been an issue for past yrs and now need to change it. Not only change but 2 weeks before. I hear guys are asking for money back. There are some teams that are not happy on different levels and time will tell as to what happens.

    Hopefully we get it in writing soon maverick, I have asked for the same as well.

    Ps. I do want to say that Kevin is working on this pretty hard and is caught between a rock and a hard place and this shouldn't be personal. He's running a business and whatever rule changes he makes he has to live with whichever consequences come of it. Don't question his heart and desire to make this a success.

  10. Kevin

    I asked you three times about this

    Your saying my government is who is saying we're not allowed

    So your saying go at own risk ? Because your rules states we can go!

    Pacific time hit it on the head. We have qualified our observers for past yrs I think it's up to everyone to do the same if they want to go over.

    Your tourney is at he best level I have seen on Great Lakes. But now a game changing rule. This should be the captains responsibility to provide someone capable if your going over. Many teams have done this in past yrs.

    So the question is here again

    If we go are we disqualified? Are you changing your rules today ?

  11. I have asked you this question already and still waiting

    In your rules it states we can go over!

    It also states to have licences for both sides

    So if we do these things are we disqualified?

    Also if we are qualified to go over can we?

    What your saying is this has been a rule in the past, the law has not changed! Why Enforce it now?

    Many teams have fished over the border since the start of tournament and this was overlooked. In fact it was won there!

    In fact we have had to qualify our observer for 3 yrs now and buy licences for the observer coming aboard, I think the observer qualification should be on the captain bringing them on.

  12. Gentlemen
