Representatives from several equipment and tackle manufacturers, media personalities from print, TV and web outlets and pro staffers converged on Lewiston, N.Y., last week for the annual spring Niagara Media Event.

Fishing options included Lake Erie, where the trophy smallmouth season opened on May 3. The lower Niagara River was also an option with the Devils Hole section kicking out steelhead, lake and brown trout. Finally, boats also headed out onto Lake Ontario to chase smallmouth, salmon or trout.

Water temperatures were rising into the upper 40s as the week wore on and the fishing variety was virtually endless no matter the venue.

BassFan was invited to participate and editor Todd Ceisner had the opportunity to spend time in the boat with Mark Davis, host of Big Water Adventures, and former walleye tournament pro Gregg LaMere.

Below is a photo gallery of Ceisner's day on Erie with Davis as well as his day on Ontario with LaMere.
