The first sign of spring has passed and what a great Toronto Sportsmen’s Show it was. I want to thank the Halton Hills Region Salmon & Trout Association and the Ontario Sportfishing Guides Association for granting me the opportunity to speak about the 2019 GOSD at their AGMs.
I know you’re waiting patiently for the prizing to be posted and it will be very soon. We are very pleased to announce that all our 2018 sponsors will be supporting this great summer event again this year.
NEW sponsors for 2019 include YETI, FISH HAWK, RADIOWORLD,THE TORONTO SUN, GIBBS-DELTA, FREEDOM TACKLE, NATURAL SPORTS, PRO TACKLE, BLACK ANGUS FINE MEATS, MIO and OUTDOOR JOURNAL RADIO.
If you’re a Charter Boat/Boat ticket purchaser the news gets even better, GARMIN has come aboard with great prizing, cash bonuses for vessels with built in GARMIN electronics and an opportunity for OSGA members to purchase GARMIN electronics.

Another new wrinkle included in this years Derby will be the FREEDOM TACKLE Photo Contest and everyone who lands any sized salmon and owns a FREEDOM CUT BAIT PLUG will be able to enter. The 3 best or most interesting photos entered over the course of the 50 days of the Derby will win $1,500,$500 or $250. Details on how to enter your photo will be announced soon.
We sold the fewest number of single tickets ever at this years Toronto Sportsmen’s Show. WHY? because everyone heard how much tax free cash the 2018 SUPER ticket holders went home with last year on Awards Day. Don’t forget $60 from every SUPER ticket sold goes into the jackpot. I’ll eat a piece of cut bait if this years jackpot doesn’t surpass last years totals. TICKETS ARE NOW AVAILABLE FOR SALE ONLINE. CLICK HERE TO BUY YOUR SUPER TICKET TODAY!
Junior Anglers Day will be Saturday July 13 for anglers 8-16 years of age that have a special Jr. Anglers Day $25 ticket , covered under a Family ticket,Charter Boat/ Boat ticket or their own single ticket. Remember everyone on the vessel must have a valid GOSD ticket. $900 in tackle gift cards courtesy of JB’s Fishing Depot, Gagnon’s Sports and Natural Sports will go to the Junior Angler that enters the heaviest Chinook. Oh yes, and a voucher for PIZZA PIZZA for a year.
