*Must be entered in LOTSA Salmon Tournament to participate in 223 Tournament.

In the 223 contest, which was the best two salmon for the day (originally it was set for biggest
fish on Friday and biggest fish on Saturday), Steve O’Lay of Ransomville and the Copper Steel
team weighed in two fish totaling 46.13 pounds to take top honors. He was fishing with Calvin
Dufour of Gasport and his son Jason from Virginia. They started fishing west of Wilson and
trolled with the wind to east of Olcott, catching 26 fish along the way. The secret to their success
was staying in 275 to 300 feet of water and fishing deep, 80 to 125 feet down. They trolled with
the wind from west of Wilson to east of Olcott. Most of the fish were caught using spin doctor
and fly combos (best one was a Pro-Am A-Tom-Mik fly with a 10-inch UV DW spin doc) off
one of two 400-foot copper rods that they had set out. Their biggest fish was caught on a RV
Flounder Pounder Moonshine spoon on the 400 copper. The second biggest fish came on a King
Fisher meat rig set 125 feet down on the rigger

Second Place – Pain Killer – Dan Owens – 46.07 lbs
