Every three years the club seeks new sponsors to raise funds in support of conservation, adult and youth tournament fishing, awards and public awareness. To show our appreciation we not only list the businesses on our website but include their logos on our tournament jerseys and share their information at our meetings. The goal is to raise mutual awareness of both the sponsors and our sport along with helping to offset operating costs.




From an angling perspective, every individual who has owned and enjoyed using Shimano tackle has a reason to thank a Japanese visionary named Shozaburo Shimano, who in 1921 declared “I aim to make Shimano’s products the best in Kansai, then the best in Japan, and finally the best in the world.”

For over 80 years, Shimano has concentrated on precision engineering, one step at a time. Creating the most innovative products and processes you can hold in your hand today.

Paris Marine

John (Jack) Paris, the founder of Paris Marine, was a Ford mechanic in Weston Ontario in 1945. Tired of that type of work, he moved to Peterborough to become a debit collector for London Life Insurance Company.

In 1946 he started Jack Paris Marine and Real Estate, located in Young’s Point, Ontario. He moved to the dealership’s current location in 1958 (see picture above), and built a modest home and showroom on 2 acres of property. He sold wooden boats made by Chestnut Canoe Company from Fredericton, New Brunswick and Sea Skiff boats made in Pennsylvania. He was also a Johnson Outboard dealer. Bill Paris was 11 years old at that time, and rebuilt his first motor: a 25 hp Gale Buccaneer that had sunk on Chandos Lake. Bill worked with his father to rig the wooden boats with Johnson motors while he attended high school.

Jack decided to sell the business in 1973 to a buyer from Toronto, but at the last minute the buyer reneged. Jack and Bill worked together to find a way to keep the dealership in the family, and along with his wife Jan they turned the small business into the largest marine dealership in the Kawartha Lakes eventually expanding the operation to Belleville and Kingston.

Bill and Jan’s youngest daughter Deborah grew up working in the dealership. With hands on experience in all departments it was no surprise that she purchased the dealership from her parents in 2005 just shy of her 30th birthday.

The dealership continues to grow each season. Deborah’s husband Joe joined the dealership in 2013 after retiring from a 25 year career in the US Military. “It’s wonderful to see” commented Joe, “generations of customers returning to the dealership year after year, it’s a wonderful tribute to a successful family run business.”

Deborah adds “Our family tradition runs deep and we look forward to showing you the difference our dealership makes. Let us help you make the most out of your time on the water together. We have everything you need at the lake.”

Savage Arms

Our company’s founders didn’t mess around, and their spirit of American, get-it done ingenuity has always been Savage Arms’ driving force. All of our category-changing innovations have come from just such a place of principle. We’re constantly looking ahead, finding new ways to leverage technology to push performance ever higher.

But we’re not just a bunch of lab geeks, either. We’re shooters. Hunters. Competitors. We know what makes or breaks a firearm’s performance out there in the real world. And throughout the years, we’ve spent time listening to the best competitive shooters, sharing campfires with hunters and guides, and comparing notes with gun writers. That collaboration, that hands-on experience, has fueled the development of features and processes unlike any ever seen in gun manufacturing.

The results could not be clearer: Modern firearms stripped of pretense and gimmickry, leaving only muscular, no-nonsense engines of performance. Just like the people who use them. They’re purposebuilt firearms that come out of the box bristling with special features you won’t find from other manufacturers.

That’s why holding a Savage in your hands is knowing what winning feels like. Whether you use them for recreational or competitive shooting, self-defense or hunting, every inch of our products is designed to give you an edge. What began with Arthur Savage back in 1894, continues stronger than ever today.

LIVETARGET baits are designed and engineered to build unwavering confidence through measurable success: catching fish. Through a highly evolved research and development process, no detail is overlooked and no shortcuts are taken to achieve perfection.

Expect nothing less than anatomically precise profiles, ultra-realistic details and meticulously tuned, species-specific actions. By creating baits that look and act like natural forage, they’re no longer baits. They become real.

The livewell doesn’t lie. It has always been about the numbers; it always will be. Better baits catch more fish, period.

We crave the win, whether we’re competing against the fish, ourselves, the conditions, or our opponents. That’s LIVETARGET; the Nature of Competition.
