LOTSA 3rd annual Curt Meddaugh tournament results

Recommended Posts

The Lake Ontario Trout and Salmon Association (LOTSA) held their 3rd annual Curt Meddaugh memorial Fishing Tournament this past Friday, July 12 for club members. The goal for teams fishing the tournament was to catch and weight their three largest fish; the combined weight of the three fish determining the winner. Weather conditions Friday morning tested the twenty-two teams who signed up to fish the tournament; strong Northeasterly winds early in the morning quickly built two to four foot waves making it quite challenging to fish. Some teams called it quits early on, but those teams who braved the rough water were rewarded with impressive catches of Salmon. 


At the close of fishing, the weigh-in revealed the 4-Poles fishing team, consisting Marty Polovick, Kyle Hovak, and Kevin Flaherty bested the competition with three fish weighing a total of 56.04 pounds. Fishing in waters from 100-250 ft deep, they caught many of their fish on downriggers fished 70-100 foot deep. Divers set at 200-300 foot and copper lines of 300 and 400 foot were also productive. Most fish were caught on Dreamweaver Spin Doctors and A-Tom-Mik flies. Attractor-fly combos were the top bait of the day for other teams as well.


Second place, with a three-fish combined weight of 50.45 pounds went to team Fisherman’s Daughter consisting of Greg Wiacek and his daughter Cathie Wiacek, and Patrick Comerford. Third place, for their combined weight score of 48.43 pounds went to the Slammin Salmon team of Matt Dunn, Marc Dunn, and Doug Parker.


At the close of the weigh in, all the fish were cleaned in preparation for the annual LOTSA club picnic blackened salmon fry to be held the following day at the pavilion in the Newfane Town Marina. This tournament is a free tournament for members of LOTSA. First prizes was $300 and a hand-held digital fish scale, second prize was $200, and third $100.
