YEEHA!! I am working on a Sponser from Kruger Farms.com which is a internet outdoor store, and also the largest rapala dealer in the country. A friend of mine is on the prostaff and mentioned to me that they would be interested in sponsering a tournament. This would be perfect, as i suspect this one, to continue to grow. I will get answers asap.

Alright guys the rules have been finalized and will be posted on the website after the weekend when rod gets home from fishing Jon's brown trout derby. We've talked to a ton of teams for their input and the majority has ruled overwhelmingly.

 

Here's the structure:

 

 Pro - 12 fish, (salmon and or trout) no communication, and mandatory observers

 

AM - 7 fish (6 salmon and/or trout with one 1 bonus lake trout), No observer

 

The pro/am series did our anglers an injustice by opening communication and getting rid of the am division.  We will now reunite with Oswego and put eastern Lake Ontario on the map for competitive fishing tournaments. We are currently working on an eastern cup (aka closed comm. cup), and will have information out soon. Also we will bring back a much needed Am division with the rules that the vast majority have been asking for many years now.

Very happy to see the amateur division put back! I think it's great to get back to 6 fish also! Many of us consider 6 fish in a single day a hell of a challenge... I'd need a genie to bring 9 in lol

We just updated a rule for the Am division. Thanks Captain Vince for the sharp eye.

 

The amended rules read:

 

 Am teams are limited to a maximum of 4 members per team.

 

Amateurs are allowed to catch up to their NYS legal limit for a 4 man crew, once a fish is kept you can not throw it back.

 

 

 

For years many recreational fishermen have asked for the AM rules we put in place for this tournament.  The Sodus Pro am has several former Am team members and current Pro team members on the committee. Both Am's & Pro's have a voice in this event, so be heard :) .

 

If we want similar structure in other Am events, we need to speak loudly through huge participation as well as self policing ....so lets spread the word and keep this rolling guys  :yes:  :yes:

I'm confused (happens a lot) Is it the best six fish out of the legal 12?

For the sake of simplicity Nick, lets just say Am teams can weigh in their best 6 silver fish (salmon, steel or browns) plus a bonus lake trout.  Teams can box their legal limit of all species combined, based on how many legal anglers are on the boat....up to a maximum of four anglers. 

 

By capping the team at four members, Am teams with large boats will not have an advantage by putting 6 anglers on their team to increase legal limits.  Not that I see that happening, because Am teams are only allowed to run 6 rods anyway....but it keeps the smaller boats aware that we are doing everything to keep it fair for ALL teams, regardless of boat size.
