Congratulations to last weeks RAPALA Angler of the Week Kimberly Short.
Francis Halupa was last weeks Berkley Trilene Big Game Winner who was selected from all our online ticket purchasers.
The GOSD would like to thank decade-long sponsors PLANO, LUCKY STRIKE, IGLOO, PENN AND SUFIX for their continued support of this great 50 day Ontario fishing event. As well we welcome our four new 2018 sponsors DAS KING, COSTA, the ONTARIO SPORTFISHING GUIDES ASSOCIATION and of course ISLANDER for their major contribution.
We just want to put to rest any rumors or uncertainties regarding our current leader’s 27.62 lb. salmon weighed in at Whitby yesterday. Yes, the Whitby Pen Project Tournament was on yesterday and yes the winner of that Tournament won with a fish of similar weight. NO, it was NOT the same chinook. We had a conversation with Rob Carnie who has been successfully fishing the GOSD for years. Rob is very aware of the rule that states ANY SALMON WEIGHED INTO THE GOSD MAY NOT BE ENTERED INTO ANY OTHER DERBY OR TOURNAMENT. Rob wasn’t even a contestant in the Whitby event.
We may not be seeing the heaviest of Chinooks this year, but we are seeing competing entries from most of our 10 weigh-in stations. As we speak the Raymarine Top 10 leaderboard has fish from 6 different locations on the north shore.
Best Location: Pickering
Best Lure: Flasher/Fly
