"The Kevin Davis Memorial Oswego Pro-Am"

Recommended Posts

It has been my privilege to be a part of a decision to rename the Oswego Pro-Am, and to be added to a newly forming Rules/Decisions committee. It is our goal to restore the prestige and participation to this classic event. Many exciting changes are being discussed including a two tiered entry fee for Pros, allowing entrants the ability to decide at what level they wish to compete dollar-wise. The new committee will still have a great local representation, but also consist of members from other ports. There will also be a special prize for the top scoring Charter boat/Captain who is fishing the event in conjunction with running his daily charter. This event will continue to be 1 of 3 tournaments utilizing the 2-day classic scoring format as it has in the past, and will also continue to be 1 of 3 Pro-Ams used in the lake wide Challenge Cup chase.(Niagara,Oswego, Sodus)

Committee members will organize raffles and fundraising efforts that will run before and during this event, benefiting a worthy organization/cause(TBD) in Kevin's honor.  Much thought was given before this name dedication was made. Kevin was a pillar of the Oswego fishing scene, both lake and river, and did fish the Pro Am several times. He was a part of a winning Pro team("TK") in 2007 and 2009. He loved Oswego and the fishery as much as anyone.

The Am division has remained popular and no major changes are being planned. Please look here and on FB for more updates as they roll out. For now, the 2019 dates are July 13th and 14th, with the Captains mtg the eve of July 12th. The popular "1K a day" for largest King Salmon will be held that week July 11,12,13,14.  Save the dates and looking forward to seeing everyone and helping the local organizers with this highly competitive event.

This is an incredible honor in memory of Kevin. He always enjoyed fishing competitively. I’ve always competed in this event. Now it will have even great meaning!!!

Every once in awhile in your career you come across a true professional.  I did not know Kevin on a personal level however on a professional level he set the bar.  I was privileged to have talked fishing and the industry with him on a couple occasions and his passion always shined thru.  This a fantastic tribute.

 

Two day 12 and 12 tourneys will always let the cream rise to the top.    Looking forward to see what is in store for the future of this tournament.

What a great tribute, and a way to keep his name synonymous with the Lake Ontario fishery. He was a good guy. I had the privilege of sharing a boat with him on a couple of occasions, and I always enjoyed chatting with him.

Thanks Vince for your continued help with our event! Look forward to working with a larger group to help improve and promote our tournament. New name decision was an easy one. Kevin was a great guy usually quiet, let his fishing do the talking. Fought his final battle with unbelievable focus & toughness i'll never forget.

Thanks to all in advance who step up to help as we move forward!
