2001 New York Fishing Odyssey


The Niagara County Department of Planning, Development & Tourism is hosting the 2001 Fishing Odyssey with $100,000 in cash and prizes. The great thing about this is that carp are part of the tournament, actually carp form two parts of the tournament. From Sept 8th to Sept 23rd there will be a big carp tournament where only the biggest carp caught wins, and the prize is $10,000 and a chance to draw for a new Toyota truck worth $25,000. The second part of the carp tournament is actually two match style events for $5,000 each where the overall weight of the catch counts and catching the biggest carp doesn't matter in the match (but does count in the big fish odyssey contest even during the match contest). These match style events are held on two separate lakes, Hoyt Lake on Sept 10-11 and Hyde Park Lake on Sept 13-14. There are a lot of rules for the match events straight from the UK so be prepared to show up with a keepsac to weigh in your catch. The hosts are considering means for anyone to weigh in each fish as you catch it to allow for the scarcity of keepsacs in the US. Some UK anglers well known to us are planning on participating including Tony Patrick Davies, the guy on the front cover of In-Fishermen a few months back in the big fish issue swimming with the sturgeon. If you are interested in the rules for all the events check out their webpage at:
