Hey Mike!  The first post in this thread now has the up to date team list.  The two in yellow are TBD right now and I'm waiting to hear if they will be able to make it.  There is still one spot open as well for boat #25.

They are awesome!! Some key features: netting is coated so your hooks won't go through the strands and get caught, small weights mounted in the bottom of the netting so the net drops into the water instead of laying on top, super deep / huge circumference, very sturdy handle that won't bend or flex... Best net available by far!!

I agree. I got one last year and it is hands down the best net I have used

  8. If the lake is deemed too rough for the Salmon Slam by the tournament coordinator, prizes will be raffled off to teams who take the veterans fishing in the bay for bass, perch, etc. (Boats may take their veterans fishing on the lake if the captain deems their vessel safe for the rough lake conditions and still be eligible for the raffle).
  9. Any tournament change due to weather will be made by 6:30 a.m. on the day of the event.
  10. Fishing will end at 12:30pm.
  11. Weigh in will be at Arney’s Marina beginning at 1:00 p.m. and end at approximately 1:30 p.m. (or when all fish are weighed in).  Participants must be in line with their fish/cooler no later than 1:30 p.m.
  12. Legal fish species will be any salmon and trout, except for lake trout which must be a minimum length of 30 inches.   All fish must meet the minimum NYSDEC size limits at the time of weigh in.  Any team bringing non-legal fish to the weigh in will be immediately disqualified.

55 deg down 85 today. Marks and bait here and there, no great screen anywhere. Some marks at 40ft, some at 120ft. No rhyme or reason today.

Lake is flat as glass.
