  7. As we did last year, LOTSA will be able to offer LOTSA themed clothing items to our members. In order to avoid the upfront costs associated with producing the merchandise and carrying the inventory, LOTSA will continue our arrangement with “Special Tees” located in Geneseo, New York. Special Tees has created a website where our members can go online and purchase LOTSA merchandise; such as hats, t-shirts, sweatshirts, jacket, and UV protective shirts in men and women styles. The LOTSA member pays for the merchandise, applicable tax and shipping costs. Your order will be shipped directly to you. There is no cost to the club. Please be advised that this is not an on demand ordering system. There is a deadline in which you can place your order. Once the deadline expires, the website will not allow you to place an order. The reason for this is because Special Tees has to set up the printing equipment and will run all of our orders at the same time. This helps keep costs down. Bottom line –Do Not Procrastinate if you want to place an order! The website will be as follows: https://lota20.itemorder.com The website will be open from January 16, 2020-February 3, 2020. Thus, the last day to order is February 3, 2020.

  11. On Thursday December 12 at 7pm, the Lake Ontario Trout & Salmon Association (LOTSA) will be having its last meeting of the year. A special guest his year will be Steve Hurst. Steve is the Chief of the Bureau of Fisheries in the Division of Fish and Wildlife for the New York Department of Environmental Conservation. He is predominantly responsible for leading and administering the States freshwater fisheries program. He will participate in an informal question and answer session during the meeting. Also attending will be the Niagara County Fishery Development Board where they will be talking about some lake wide issues and also answering questions. Pizza, wings and refreshments will be provided for all attending. This should be a great meeting on what is going on in the lake and your chance to ask questions to the people heavily involved in the fishing on Lake Ontario. LOTSA is a group of mainly weekend recreational fishermen who are dedicated to the enhancement of the Lake Ontario Sport-Fishery including the pen rearing project at Olcott. Each meeting also features a sharing of information the current fishing conditions. So come join us and become more successful at fishing Lake Ontario! The meeting will be held at the new location for our LOTSA meetings, The North Amherst Fire Company, 2200 Tonawanda Creek Rd. Amherst, N.Y. The Seminar is open to the public and free to attend. See WWW.LOTSA1.ORG for any questions. Sent from my VS995 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. We are officially Sold Out. Thank you to all who have registered. See you all in January! Sent from my VS995 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Ok, we did some checking in to the issues stated above. There is now a statement on the https://niagarafishingexpo.com/lodging page that reads "ONLY THE ABOVE PRICING APPLIES WHEN YOU BOOK THROUGH THE MARRIOTT SYSTEM. IT WILL SHOW SOME STANDARD FEES WHICH WILL NOT APPLY TO YOUR DISCOUNTED RATE. ONLY THOSE FEE'S CLEARLY OUTLINED ABOVE WILL BE CHARGED TO YOU. ALSO, YOU WILL NOT MAKE ANY PAYMENT UNTIL ARRIVAL, SO YOU CAN REVIEW THAT ONLY THOSE FEES OUTLINED ABOVE WILL BE CHARGED. THANK YOU" I agree that this is kind of confusing. When you check in, make sure that you are only being charged what is stated on the https://niagarafishingexpo.com/lodging page. That price should only be $96.54 per night. These prices are negotiated by the Greater Niagara Fishing & Outdoor Expo, Not LOTSA. Thank you.
  14. As of 6:00pm this evening, 122 seats have been filled, Only 48 seats left.
  15. "Just a quick update on the Salmon School this coming January 18th. As of November 1st over 100 seats have been sold and sales are on the same pace as last year’s sellout by the first week of Dec. Andy, Matt and Pete are working hard on it and have a lot of material to cover. Bringing in Karl and Lance for their specific areas of expertise will even add more value to the offering. Here is a quick video message from the presenters https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdrDbZvdSV0 . The main purpose of the Salmon School is to provide attendees with the information that they can use to be more successful catching Kings. One of the “Deep Dive” topics this January will be to cover all the “off the water” work leading up to your outing that will allow you to be as successful as possible when you hit the water. As we all know both the lake itself and the Kings are constantly changing. Your last trip may have been great for Kings but just going back to the same spot without doing the “off the water” work may be the wrong move for your next trip. You can’t catch Kings if they aren’t where you are fishing so giving yourself the best chance to fish where they are is critical for a successful outing. This will include the prep work prior to the trip right up to when you hit the water. It will include the resources to use whether your boat is docked or on a trailer to be able to make the best decisions on where to start out, with what presentation, baits etc. to have the best opportunity for success in your time on the water. Probably the least obvious benefit but one of the biggest opportunities of attending the Salmon School, is to increase your network of Fishermen. Having a reliable network of Lake Ontario anglers that you can share information with is one of the most critical components of your “off the water” prep. With 170 Anglers at the Salmon School all sharing the same passion for Kings that you have, there is not a better opportunity for you to add to your network than this. There are now 12 hours of time around the Salmon School if you are able to attend everything (Friday 2.5 hours State of the Lake and Meet N Greet, Saturday School 8 – 430 and Sunday addition questions 9 – 10) where you have the opportunity to build your network. So, if you are thinking about attending, please make up your mind soon while seats are still available. Signup and submit your questions (www.lotsa1.org) so that Pete, Andy and Matt have enough time to work them into their presentation. Please remember the school is being taught for the experienced angler. We don’t plan on spending much time if any on the basics. If we get real basic questions, there are other seminars early on Friday and on Sunday that you can go to for that information. We have also been getting some questions on how to get you 3-day pass etc. We will send out specific instructions in early January to each person signed up with everything you will need to know. LOTSA President – Joe Yaeger"
