Great Lakes Sport Fishing Council



LOTSA is a group of mainly weekend recreational fishermen who are dedicated to the enhancement and promotion of the Lake Ontario Sport-Fishery and a strong proponent of Catch & Release.

LOTSA meetings are normally held on the 2nd Wednesday of every month, however, due to a room scheduling conflict, as of March 2005, LOTSA meetings will be held on the 2nd Thursday of every month at 7:00 p.m. at the Cornell Cooperative Extension, 4487 Lake Ave. (Route 78, two miles north of Lockport), Lockport, NY and usually feature an informational seminar on a particular topic relating to the Lake Ontario fishery. Each meeting also features a sharing of information on the current fishing conditions.

We would like to think that our club is well known but there are a lot of non-sportsmen and women who may not know of us or the things that we do. We believe our activities reach out to everyone in our community not just sport-fishermen. We are not the typical fishing club. We are very community orientated. As a club, we try to do a lot for our community through fishing. If you want to know more about the Southtowns Walleye Association attend one of our meetings. They are held on the third Thursday of every month. They are always open to the public and held at the Armor Volunteer Fire Company Hall, 4932 Clark Street, Hamburg, NY or you can call the club office at 716-649-8202 for more information.
