Curt C. Meddaugh Memorial Tournament

The Lake Ontario Trout and Salmon Association’s Curt Meddaugh Memorial Tournament ran
into some rough weather Friday, and 41 teams were forced to fish the waters of Lake Ontario for
the LOTSA Club King Salmon Tournament on Saturday with a winner-take-all for the big fish if
they were in both contests. Brian Gregson of Gasport with the Totally Hooked team caught the
big fish for the day to win both competitions with a 25.46-pound king salmon. Also on the team
were his wife, Jill; his brother Adam; and the team anchor, 77-year-old father-in-law Don
Tranter of Grand Island. They trolled from Wilson to Olcott to take their winning fish. The team
ran west of Wilson from Olcott and worked their way east with the wind. Staying in 200 to 220
feet of water, they caught the top fish on a Mountain Dew Spin Doctor with a meat rig outfitted
with N & D meat. It was set on a dipsy 180 feet back on a No. 1 setting. However, flasher-fly
rigs took most of the fish they caught on Saturday. Another hot program was using fixed sliders
10 feet above the downrigger ball set at 80 and 90 feet. The best spoon was a green gator.

Second Place – Anthony Ellis – Redemption – 24.85 lbs
Third Place – Dan Owens –Pain Killer – 24.84 lbs

Curt C. Meddaugh

The Curt Meddaugh Memorial Tournament honors long time LOTSA member Curt Meddaugh who passed away suddenly in 2010. Curt was the LOTSA member responsible for starting up the LOTSA Pen Project at the Newfane Marina. He was a tireless worker for LOTSA along with the Lake Ontario Fishery and was always looking for opportunities to get Kids involved with Fishing. We are proud to honor him with this Tournament and look forward to catching Kings and Steelhead, which were raised in “Curt’s Pens” at Olcott each year.
