on May 23 2009 on worm rigs while fishing for walleyes and bass.

I came across your web site and the pictures attached (

I did not give anyone permission to post these pictures nor did Josh Kane whom is also featured. Being that Josh and myself are the two pictured in your site with no permission given (I don't even know Bob Bucholz) I am kindly requesting that you take these down immediately.

 Please respond and let me know that you have received this letter.

Thank you,
Gabe Edwards

First thing you did wrong is threaten me with a lawyer. YOU know that's B.S, your buddy Josh does, and your other friends around you know it is too. It's the same old 'lawyer prank'..... "If this request is not met I will involve my lawyer." Grow up kid, life is too short.

Mr. Edwards, as far as I'm concerned, those photos were/are public domain as I received them by email which is public domain. The pictures as stated were taken by one/first party as stated in the caption above, and forwarded to another party then ended  to me, making me a third party to which I posted on the Outdoors Niagara website in an ongoing effort of promoting fishing in our Western New York area waters.


You can take this as my response, This page should have been taken down years ago because it is what we call a 'dead' page with very little activity for 5 years, since May of 2009, and only 1,449 clicks. [see counter in lower left hand corner]

Thank You,

Report Sturgeon Sightings

Helen Domske, Associate Director for the New York Sea Grant Great Lakes program at the University of Buffalo and a coordinator for this State of Lake Erie meeting for 15 years concluded the evening by emphasizing the importance that the angling community can have in monitoring sturgeon in the Great Lakes. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has only a small amount of time to devote to field studies for lake sturgeon and anglers can be the eyes for them to observe fish spawning or other important activities. If you are out fishing and observe or catch a lake sturgeon, you are asked to consider collecting the following information: location (GPS coordinates, nearest town, etc.); date and time of sighting; activity being performed (fishing, diving, etc.); number of sturgeon; alive or dead; length; body condition; any tags or markings; and, take a photo of the fish if possible. If you have any questions or would like to pass this information along, you can do so by contacting the Lower Great Lakes Fishery Resources Office at 716-691-5456.
