-1 for fall derby

Ed, can I ask we you would not be in favor of a fall derby? I would like to hear comments both for and against so that I can weigh both sides of the discussion.

Thank you,

Jason

As much as I enjoy derbies and especially on Seneca. This might not be the best time to initiate a Fall derby for a number of reasons. First is the fact that the fishing has been way off on Seneca for sometime other than a few spotty reports and if say the fishing really sucked for an initial derby it could effect attitudes toward participation in the Spring derby and we are all interested in getting that one back in full successful operation right now in light of the new changes  in management etc. The lakers spawn in the Fall and depending on the exact timing of the derby the spawners could be vulnerable at certain well known north end spots :doh: and as far as participants after Labor Day many folks with kids pack it in for the season as the kids are back in school so there would be a lot less interest in a derby other than the hard core fishing types. Just my initial thoughts. I know a lot of the hard core fishermen are really chasing the perch then too and maybe interest and participation would be affected by that as well,.

Les,

You made some very good points. Even if the group was to peruse the idea, I don't believe it would happen in the near future, as preserving and expanding on the current derby will take a couple years to get under way. But you do raise some good points. Thank you!

Looking forward to hearing comments on this and any other derby related topics. Thank you.

Les cover it pretty good , fishing has been going down hill and a derby kills fish just for money. At this time IMHO I don't think it would help but add to the decline.

Thanks for the good words guys. I'm sure there are other opinions and feelings and we're all interested in having fun and continuing and improving the National Lake Trout Derby and I am very grateful for the direct involvement of you and others Jason, and look forward to changes and positive direction the new approach and participants will take. An overhaul is long overdue and it is refreshing to see things happening toward improvement.

Sorry guys I am just catching up been busy on Lady O this summer. Myself and obviously many others are very excited to see that this tradition will be carried on. As I mentioned previously that my family has 4 generations now fishing in it and we all look forward to it. I look forward to reading all the updates and can't wait til next year. As a side note Les hit it on the head as for a Fall derby. I myself had my last trip for salmon yesterday and now preparing the boat for perch fishing so to take away from spawning lakers would impact the fishery substantially. Great job to all that stepped up and can't wait.
