  1. Agreed on both statements. The wild contribution is a blessing. The bite we are now experiencing would not be possible without it. Alewives are a herring. Their purpose is to feed game fish. When left underpredated bad things happen.
  2. Looks like this will be bigger than ever. Some new sponsors helping out and some new teams joining the fray. Lots of local passion and a very well run, organized event. We are looking forward to seeing everyone in Sodus Pt.
  3. I think there will be another record hatch from this years spawning. The alewife spawning started early and continues today in many locations. Its a good thing there's currently a good population of Salmon out there because the last thing the lake needs is a return to overpopulated, skinny alewives.
  4. 2006 year model. Will work with most Raymarine displays. I will sell the scanner alone for $500, or package with a display if needed. Cords included. PM if interested.
  5. As of tonite it is still a planned event. People in the area are working hard so it can go.
  6. If you are planning on participating in this event and would like assistance with a dock please contact Tom Burke @ 315-391-8079. Provisions are being made but he needs to hear from you.
  7. Every effort is being made to hold this event in Oswego. If you are planning on participating in this Pro Am, and would like some assistance with getting a dock please contact Tom Burke @ 315-391-8079
  8. Give it a couple days. One of the coordinators is involved in the Niagara Pro Am this weekend. Discussions have begun but this was just dropped on everyone. It is my understanding that every effort will be made to go ahead with the event even if a few changes have to be made.
  9. I have nothing to do or say about the current scoring system. I was fine with adding the scores the old way. I do however have complete confidence in VOLUNTEER Matt LeClair managing this newer scoring system which was adopted along the way. I will say I prefer lakewide series events that use all scores and events from both the East and West ends. Tim I dont think I would be publicly belly aching about now.

  10. Just a reminder- I will be collecting the Cup entry money at the Niagara Pro Am Captains mtg, Thurs May 30th 6pm at the Wilson firehall. $100 per team. A big thank you to the Niagara “Skip Hartman memorial” Pro Am, the Oswego “Kevin Davis memorial” Pro Am, the Sodus Pro Am, and Krenzer marine for keeping this tradition alive.

  11. Smelt are now being found in the stomachs of fish from Niagara county waters. Also reliable reports of them in fish from Oswego county waters. They are late to run the Niagara river this Spring because of the late ice out. Temp is climbing now in the river.
  12. Once again the Lake Ontario Challenge Cup will be up for grabs this season. This Cup is awarded yearly and the winners team name attached. This will continue as the overall prize for the 3 Pro division 2 day Pro Am events. Utilizing a unique scoring system, the team that fares the best over the 6 days of competition will be hoisting the Cup. The Niagara County(Skip Hartman memorial) Pro Am, The Oswego (Kevin Davis memorial) Pro Am, and the Sodus Pro Am are the 3 events and there are no throw away scores. The 3 events have pledged financial support and in conjunction with the $100 entry per team(collected at the Niagara Captains meeting) will pay back 70% to the winner and 30% to the runner up. The Cup will be awarded at the Sodus Pro Am awards ceremony. See everyone soon.
  13. Great tournament with excellent community support. Thank you Matt and committee.
  14. This event is shaping up to be a good one. Renewed local community support along with expanded rules and weather committees. This event has gone to a two tiered entry level for Pro teams. Teams can compete for approx half the entry fee than in the past, perfect for new Pro teams or Charter Captains that want to participate with their inexperienced party on board. Of course Pro teams can enter both divisions are play for bigger prizes. The most important thing is to participate, celebrate Oswego's July fishery and it's many twists, all while honoring one of Oswego's own. Kevin's family has chosen St. Judes Children's hospital as the benefactor for fundraising efforts that will run in conjunction with the Pro-Am. Watch for more updates here and on facebook @ Oswego Pro Am.
  15. NO WONDER your ladies put the smack down on the Kings last year! Ours were dancing and drinking mimosas! Good stuff Rob, it's all about raising money for great causes, showing them our great fishery, introducing many ladies to the team fishing aspect. Thanks for making the trip each August.
  16. Big bounce back Spring for Emerald shiners. There are large clouds of them in 20--40 fow right now in Western basin. This is good news. All young Salmonoids get a good bump eating these early in their life and Coho, Browns, and Steelhead eat them throughout their life.
  17. I thought you were going to fish it? Let "Gambler rigs" buy the promo trailer for your rig! Either way, thanks Brian for your annual support!
  18. A private marina in Wilson, Bootleggers marina reports they will have one this season. As for public marinas I understand both Olcott and Oswego are exploring the options.
  19. Definitely makes a lot of sense. We look at thousands of stomachs each season and it is definitely not a bait shortage. We most certainly have lots of early maturing Salmon now. No complaints -they fight and eat better than ever. I appreciate the work you did on this Phil.
  20. Approx 100 hrs on these. For a big block 454. Used only until the Rochester carb was refurbished. The intake is a Performer 2.0 and is aluminum. The carb is a 4 barrel marine model. I have the mounting wedge as well. The intake is $125 and the carb is $200. Take both for $300.
  21. This annual event is a very real Ladies fishing tournament with a fund raising theme. The benefactors are chosen for their work with Womens Cancer issues/challenges. The first 2 years approx 5K was raised for Mary's Wig Room, and The Breast Cancer Network of WNY respectively. Last year, due to great participation and generosity over 10K was raised for "Look Good Feel Better". This years benefactor chosen by a committee of volunteers is "Hope For Two"--the pregnant with cancer network. This years date is Friday August 16th. Competition ends at Noon with the awards, food/after party/chinese auction to follow. Teams of 2 to 6 ladies can register with their own boat or inquire about being placed with one of the volunteer boats. The entry fee is $250 per team.
