Welcome to my Focus on Fishing website. Focus on Fishing is part of amBASSador Angling Services, a small company I started in 1986. It encompasses all my freelance outdoor writing, photography, fishing courses, seminars, tournament fishing, guiding excursions, consulting, product field testing, corporate fishing events and of late my Hooked on Fishing video clips. Look for regularly updated articles and fishing information that will help you catch more fish and hopefully entertain you at the same time. Thanks for visiting and I hope you cast a line here often.

Aurora Bassmasters Present Lake Simcoe Bass Tagging Research Report

For Immediate Release: Today the Aurora Bassmasters are proud to release and distribute a report on their Lake Simcoe Bass Tagging Research Project . This report was written by Steven Kerr (retired MNRF biologist and renowned science report writer) with assistance from Wil Wegman (conservation director for Aurora Bassmasters club). It summarizes the results of a five year (2006 – 2010) cooperative research project involving the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) and the Aurora Bassmasters.

These catch and release tournaments were comprised of smaller Bassmaster club tournaments, larger one day open events and even the three day Eastern Division B.A.S.S.
