  1. Great Lakes Special events is announcing season 2 of the Lake Ontario Championship Series. This year, Division I has a minimum guaranteed payout of $5,000 and Division II $2,500. Also, we lowered the maximum initial picks from (5) to (4). Also, tis year, we have added a Division II which involves some of the larger tournaments as well as the smaller ones, AM divisions and one day events throughout Lake Ontario. DII was established more so for the recreational teams, serious am type teams and part time charter captains. Whereas DI was designed more for the serious tourney teams, pro fishers, hardcore rec anglers and full time captains. For more information: click on the weblink, go to the tournament topics and click Lake O Championship Series DI or DII. http://greatlakesspecialevents.com/ Thanks, Captain Pete

  4. Lake O Championship Concludes Excerpt: http://www.greatlakesspecialevents.com/blog.htmlAgain, the GLSE would like to thank this years sponsors: Dreamweaver, Fish Hawk, Northwest Savings Bank, Shark Cannonballs and the Wilson Boat Yard.The 1st annual GLSE Lake Ontario Championship Series has concluded for 2017 and as predicted, went down to the last event. Team Vision Quest needed to place 4th place or higher in order to win and did just that by winning the Fall King of The Lake event held in Canada this past weekend. Team VQ entered that last event as their "second chance" event and it paid off. Runner up was Team A-TOM-MIK/CBII who maintained the lead most of the summer. They will receive a check also for this years series.Congratulations to Team VQ and Tom Allen's A-TOM-MIK team.Look for updates and announcements this off season and look forward to next years 2nd annual series.http://www.greatlakesspecialevents.com/index.htmlCaptain Pete

  6. Great Lakes Special Events-Lake O Championship Series Update Excerpt: (click link for full blog info) http://www.greatlakesspecialevents.com/blog.html 8/11/17: King of Kings Summer Shoot Out concludes and congratulations goes out to Team Diabolical from Michigan for the big win. The only teams participating in this one were: Yankee Troller, Thrillseeker and Fast Lane.... Yankee picked up the pace in the overall by placing 6th and earning 90 points. That has helped him move into 2nd place, just 7 points behind Team CBII/A-TOM-MIK. Teams Thillseeker and Fastlane did not place high enough to make a difference. Next event on the tour is the A-TOM-MIK Invitational. Let's see if any teams can make a move in this event being held in Oswego, NY. Those participating teams include: CBII/A-TOM-MIK, Cannonball Runner and Thrillseeker. 8/22/17: The A-TOM-MIK invitational is in the books and congratulations goes out to Oh' Baby for winning the event. Team Thrillseeker was the only team of the 3 that had stakes in it that made a move by using that score. Team Thrillseeker placed 6th and earned 90 points. Cannonball and BCII only earned 54 and 56 points, which did not advance them. At the end of this one, the scores remain unchanged and CBII/A-TOM-MIK and Yankee Troller hold the 1st place and runner up positions. The fall KOTL is the last event in the series. And as predicted, will come down to this event. Team Vision Quest is going all in with their second chance , while Yankee and Fast Lane are already entered in these events. As we see it, if Yankee finishes 8th place or higher they replace CBII and if VQ finishes 4th or higher, they replace CBII (unofficially) as well which means ultimately, it may be between these three teams for the overall championship and runner up position. It will be an exciting finish and CBII/A-TOM-MIK will be watching anxiously from Oswego for the final scores to come in on September 3rd. Good luck to everyone. Again, the GLSE would like to thank this years sponsors: Dreamweaver, Fish Hawk, Northwest Savings Bank, Shark Cannonballs and the Wilson Boat Yard. Stay tuned....

    Riggers and diver blow back can be inaccurate !!!! When fishing in a strong deep down current, your riggers down there can be fast or really slow while your higher divers look PERFECT. They are running in two differnt worlds and judging how ones cables look or wire divers look may not be the same as your other gear and thats a fact, esp. when fishing the river currents west. Often your divers may look limp and your down speed on a rigger ball may be right.... Or vice versa. Lake O is a challenge and so is fishing, so the more variables you can tap into or eliminate will help your overall experience and success. The items being mentioned in this post all help that cause, unfortunately, they all cost $$ lol... Capt. Pete Vision Quest
  9. Great Lakes Special Events Overall Championship Update Excerpt from BLOG section: 7/18/17: Sodus Pro Am concludes and congratulations goes out to Cold Steel/Dirty Goose for their win. They were not competing in the Overall but Teams: Thrillseeker took 5th, Cannonball Runner 6th and Team A-TOM-MIK/CBII took 9th. That ended in some turnover in the overall standings because the east end teams have now hit their 3rd event. Team A-TOM-MIK/CBII takes over the no. 1 spot, while Cannonball Runner moves to the runner up position, just (1) point ahead of Vision Quest. All of the teams except Thrillseeker have their "second chance" left and MUST enter that before midnight of the event they wish to claim as second chance. Yankee Troller which started with a 1st place win in April still has (2) left and his second chance, so as stated above, it will go down to the last event here. Stay tuned....

  10. Fish hawk 4x

    I would rather leave my boat at the dock than not have my hawk. Not knowing what/where to start below and how, my speed actually is after having one for years would S _ _K . GENERAL suggestions: Wise investment and always retie your rigger terminal and test it with a weight before putting your brand new probe on the first time after redoing the terminal end. Don't let the new guys bring your probe up either and you attach it in the am and detach after. Keep a spare probe, breakaway and batteries. If you can afford it. For big boats maybe?: I also have two transducers mounted, one as a spare. Cheaper than lifting a big boat out to replace one, no hassle, plus its a back up. Came in handy last week when my original one quit working for some reason. I fired up the other transducer and presto. Back in the game. Capt. Pete Vision Quest

  12. Lake O Championship Updated Standings 5/23/17: Congratulations to Team Screamer for taking this years Niagara Pro Am. Dave was fishing with an all star team consisting of guys from Oswego, where they know how to grind. They did not have to grind here and boxed out early during the two tournament days. One day was cancelled due to strong NE winds (good call Penny-Niagara tourney director). Dave opted out of this years LOCS but two back to back high finishes would have put him in a great position for this years event. Team Vision Quest finished the best overall for teams in this years LOCS by taking 4th place in the Niagara and it put them in an early 1st place position with 7 more events to go. Welcome Team Thrillseeker to the LOCS 2017. Next event will be the Oak Orchard Open, always a good event with a lot of participation. There is still plenty of time for teams to get in on this years overall championship with 7 events remaining http://www.greatlakesspecialevents.com/blog.html http://www.greatlakesspecialevents.com/locs.html
