Shaping up to be a  great event.

Local shops like Grimsby Tackle,  Bill's Bait and Peters Tackle will be there as will other small home grown businesses and many other individuals with lots of goodies.

As well as some very good seminars happening every hour.


Every paid entry has a shot at winning one of 2 Lake Ontario Salmon Charters and the St Catharines Game and Fish Association will also be raffling off a nice Ice Fishing Package.

k time to recap from the Niagara Fishing Tackle Swap that was held this past weekend.
Lots of thank you's coming at ya!
A big thanks to all of our vendors who rented tables.
To our guest speakers who gave great presentations in the seminar room.
To everyone who attended.
To all our volunteers who planned, organized, set up and clean up afterwards.
To Eden High School, the DSBN & custodians for hosting us.
Thank you very much everyone!
Congratulations to Donnie Dickson for winning the Ice Fishing package draw. Thank you to Grimsby Tackle for helping us arrange the prizes.
Congratulations to Jim Poling who won the Salmon Charter with Steve Jablonski ( Krazy Kings) & to Darren Baiton who won the Salmon Charter with Shane Thombs ( FINtastic Sportfishing)
We had over 400 paid adult entries at the door.
As some may know, in late Dec, we were saddened to hear of the passing of one of our very dedicated members, Mary Schultz. In Mary's memory, the $2220 raised from admission sales at the Swap has been donated to Start Me Up Niagara
As well throughout the day, additional money was raised for our Kids Day Program through sales of Coffee & Pizza.
Our Youth Tackle Share Program that's run in partnership with many local library branches was also able to raise additional funds through sales of donated Tackle & equipment.
Thank you everyone for your continued support of the St Catharines Game and Fish Association. While we are an outdoors/conservation focused organization, we realize the importance of community and do our best to help others when we can
