  2. We are excited to bring the Lake Ontario Championship Series back for year #3 NEW for 2019: FREE entry for DII entrants with chance to win $500 cash plus $500 in sponsor products. With the Spring KOTL coming next weekend, teams may want to consider entering before that event if they are participating in it, especially Canadian teams that are competing in both KOTL events and maybe a Tight Lines event. There are 4 Canadian events to choose from, so Canadian teams not competing in any USA events in 2019, can simply enter all 4 Canadian events upfront. DI remains the same as years past. DII was amended to a free entry in order to make this a fun and exciting-see how you do against your peers all season event. We keep the running scoreboard all year for you. You simply pick 5 events prior to participating in your first one. We use your best 3 and we allow 5 picks even though you may not know the events you may do. No harm in picking extra events-we only use best 3. Divisions: Division I is geared more for the charter captain, pro anglers or serious fisher people. Entrants in this division would be those typically qualified to enter the Pro division only in Pro Am style events. Cost: $100 event (same as last 2 years) Awards Overall Winner: 70% Runner Up: 30% Division II is designed more for the recreational angler and part time tournament angler. However, pros or charter captains can participate in DII if they choose those events that are "NOT" listed as AM (only) events. Cost: FREE Awards Overall Winner: $500 cash plus $500 min. in sponsor prizes Runner Up: $200.00 check and $300 min. in sponsor prizes. http://www.greatlakesspecialevents.com/about.html Questions: [email protected] Thank You

  6. 2019 Wilson Harbor Tourney will be Saturday May 18th with Make Up Day May 19th Few minor changes in the works and entry fee "may" drop to $1,000, TBD yet but the 2019 date is for sure. Below are the three videos with links from the 2018 event
  7. Update: Joe Y. from LOTSA just informed me this evening there are less that 40 seats available. Some of the questions we've seen submitted by the attendees are really good ones. That is another benefit of signing up-You can submit a question/topic to be addresses by the presenters. Capt. Pete Vision Quest
  8. Greetings Anglers, There are less than 50 seats left for the 2019 Salmon School, so if you are considering it, you may want to pull the trigger soon. Captains Andy and Matt have a lot to share and I am looking forward to not only presenting with them but seeing what makes these two FISH HEADS think !!! Below are just a few items we will be talking about that day. This is going to be "one" fun dockside discussion for everyone in attendance. A few l tid bits: We have some great insight and thoughts on MEAT techniques and we're going to spend some a fair amount of time on how to improve everyone's meat game. Flashers? These can be a confusing to some. When to use them and what type works best under what situations. More Meat-Oh-yeah-were gonna talk meat.. From the perspective of three different guys who may be fishing it a bit different than each other and you. Tourney tactics? Yep-but brief because most guys are not tourney anglers but for you serious tourney anglers who will be in the house-We're all gonna give you a quick tip on how to make you a better tourney angler. I will have my ears open... DEEP fish? you will hear about our DEEP fish game.... Esp. from East End Andy who, along with the COLD STEEL makes a living grinding DEEP sharks. The BAR, nope.. not where Andy and Matt like to go after fishing but the REAL Bar; The Mighty Niagara Bar by the season-SPRING_SUMMER_FALL. We have the BAR master-Matt doing this segment. The VQ traveling road show will focus on how to dial in your game when you haven't fished much or the winds of change have came or you want to cross the Lake and have a day and a half to figure out plan to catch kings in a foreign port. Canadians, Oh Yes, my friends from Canada! You guys have been very good to me over the years.... You fellas wont be left out either.. We're gonna talk about catching kings in Canadian waters also and maybe toss in a few tourney tips on catching big KOTL KINGS. (Yvan-you should consider attending)... And more..... Most importantly folks, your ticket to the school supports LOTSA !!! These guys do a tremendous amount of good to and for the Lake O fishery and so supporting them via membership or the school goes a long way. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the School ! Captain Pete Vision Quest

  19. Looking forward to participating in the long standing Niagara Pro Am again this year. Cant wait. Thanks to everyone and sponsors for making the event happening each year. There will be some interesting thought processing/strategy going on to try to "solicit" bigger fish only, since this is a 12 and out event with a hot bite going on. However, its Lake O and things can change overnight? Capt. Pete
  20. The Series is updated after the WHI... Congrats to Tom Allen and his Team for the repeat win. Only (1) DII entry with a guaranteed $2,500 and (6) DI entries with a $5,000 guaranteed payout???

  22. http://www.greatlakesspecialevents.com/locsstandings.html 5/4/18: The Lake O series kicked off in St. Caths' at the spring KOTL. Over 60 teams competed in this years event and it went very well except Mother Nature denied us on Day 2 with big winds, snow and cold temps from the NW. That makes 3 years in a row this event turned into a one day shootout. Congrats to Silver Junkies for winning the event followed by Two Fish and Vision Quest. Reel Excitement finished 5th and Oh Baby 41st. Oh Baby, VQ, Reel Excite and Silv J were all entered at the time this event took place and these are the 4 teams currently in DI as of this writing. Fishing was pretty tough there as only 12 out of 63 took their 5 fish boxes to the scales. Last year, it was a shootout with many 12 fish boxes. Every year is a different gig, that for sure. Next event will be the Wilson Harbor Invitational on May 19th. Teams must enter by 11:59pm on May 18th to enter and must choose all their events (except second chance) by then. Just a reminder, this year DI pays $5,000 guaranteed and DII $2,500.00.
  23. Results are in on the first major tourney event on Lake Ontario. Congrats to the top 9 payouts spots (only paid 9) http://www.kotl.ca/spring.html Click link for website Captain Pete
  24. Just a reminder that anyone looking to participate in either Div. and include the spring KOTL, will need to enter their picks by the Friday before the spring KOTL. 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, this 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/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=51&v=lzEGcCoTpQA Thanks, Captain Pete
  25. Over 50 teams in so far. Good turnout for the first event of 2018.... Might break 60 with some late entries? TBD... Capt. Pete
