Fishing has been a major component of the history of the Erie area beginning after
the Battle of Lake Erie until the present time.
The S.O.N.S. (Save Our Native Species) of Lake Erie fishing club was organized in
1981 and is dedicated to the enhancement of fishing and the fishery of Lake Erie.
Annually the club has sponsored family fishing clinics free of charge to hundreds of
children and their families. S.O.N.S. of Lake Erie also promotes clean waters and
maintains two beautiful parks along Erie's waterfront.
A summer-long fishing contest will take place from Memorial Day until Labor Day
2013. It will be open to the public.
The rules are very simple. Anglers will be invited to submit fish that were caught in
Lake Erie, its tributaries and Erie County waters. The fish will be submitted to area
bait shops and weigh stations where they will be measured and judged. The largest
fish in certain categories will be deemed winners in that category. The contest will
have both junior and senior divisions. The largest fish caught during the period will
be awarded the Grand Prize. All regulations dictated by the Pennsylvania Fish and
Boat Code will apply to all fish caught during the event. The rules of the contest will be set by a committee of S.O.N.S. of Lake Erie Members and will be published and available to all contestants and will be responsible for all judging of the contest.
