  2. 2024 Salmon School is sold out. Thank you to everyone who signed up. Captain Rob, Casey and myself are excited and looking forward to a fun and informative day. Did I say fun?
    Also, thanks to the Lake Ontario Trout and Salmon Association for continuing this annual event.
    They do a lot of work behind the scenes to promote and organize the Salmon School as well at the 4 day Expo.
    There will be a lot of seminars, in addition to the SS.
    Check out the link to view the vendors, reps and more.

    Hello anglers,


    The LOTSA organizers wanted me to let you know that the 2024 Salmon School is nearly sold out.  So, if you are considering attending the event in February, do not wait to long.  There are 15 seats or less available.


    Captain Casey Prisco, Rob Westcott as well as myself are excited to present at this year's event.

    Will boil down to last event more than likely....




    Still a few events to go.  If anyone sees any errors that effect the top 10 or other, please let me know. There are a lot of numbers to tally as the season progresses.

  8. I will add a couple more things. Some of the guys using braid also use it for depth.  They happen to be deeeeep meat guys and feel braid allows more depth/less line. Casey for sure likes braid for that reason, esp when has has to laker fish a lot during the season. We catch a lot of browns when in BT mode. Our best rigger is usually our deepest with 15 ft ball to spoon lead.  


    Lastly, one of the reasons wire divers catch fish and a lot of big fish, is the same hummmm. Its the same steel except smaller diameter.  When we want stealth/fishing high, we use 20# mono and divers for the non-humm/stealth plus allows us to get mono lil further out on sides (divers run on a 3 to 4 setting-dialed) out for high salmon/trout OR skinny water stagers/fish browns.  But deeper run diver fish hardly resist wire diver offerings. VS Braid


    Catch em up this season seeyawader.
