    LAKE ERIE UPDATE AND WALLEYE ANGLING SEMINAR SCHEDULED FOR APRIL 19,
    2005 AT THE LAKE ERIE NATURE AND SCIENCE CENTER

    Summer is almost here and it's time to put the boats back in the water
    or book your charters for walleye fishing! Want to find out how, when
    and where to catch Lake Erie walleye, including the central basin and
    island regions?

    Learn all of this and more during Ohio Sea Grant's Lake Erie Update and
    Walleye Angling Seminar to be held at the Lake Erie Nature and Science
    Center, 28728 Wolf Road, Bay Village, Ohio. Scheduled for Tuesday, April
    19, 2005 from 7:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M., the seminar is co-sponsored by
    the Ohio Sea Grant College Program and the Lake Erie Nature and Science
    Center. Seating is limited, with pre-registration and payment of $5 per
    person (to help support the nature center) necessary to guarantee
    seating. Registration at the door will be accepted only if seating is
    available. Call the Lake Erie Nature and Science Center at (440)
    871-2900 for more information and to register for this seminar.

    The seminar will feature Steve "Freebyrd" Carlson, noted Lake Erie
    tournament fisherman, and Fred Snyder, Dave Kelch and Kelly Riesen, Ohio
    State University Extension Specialists with the Ohio Sea Grant College
    Program.

    Tournament Angler Steve Carlson will discuss Central Basin trolling
    techniques with the goal of helping weekend anglers put more fish in the
    boat this summer. Carlson has applied his knowledge of trolling
    successfully with his FreeByrd Fishing Team taking 11 Top Ten finishes
    in Lake Erie walleye tournaments since 2002.

    Fred Snyder, District Specialist with Ohio Sea Grant, will reveal his
    secrets for drifting and casting for Lake Erie walleye. Snyder, a Lake
    Erie fisheries specialist, has been fishing the lake for over 30 years.

    Dave Kelch, Extension Specialist with Ohio Sea Grant, will tell
    participants about what's been happening with Lake Erie's walleye
    fishery, including catch rates, population size and spawning success and
    the angling forecast for 2005. He will also provide information about
    contaminants in popular Lake Erie game fish.

    Kelly Riesen, Fisheries Extension Program Coordinator with Ohio Sea
    Grant, will teach participants proper release techniques for sub-legal
    walleye.

    Anglers can experience some excellent walleye fishing RIGHT NOW if they
    know where to go and how to fish for them! This seminar can provide the
    answers to your questions and help anglers fill the coolers before
    summer arrives.
     
  2. BigD,

    Will there be any more seminars like this one? I just now saw this post and would have liked to go to the one on 4/19. Thanks.
