No Grand River Tackle fishing contest (Blame hard economic times)

The popular steelhead fishing contest sponsored by Grand River Tackle in Fairport Harbor has been shelved for at least this year.

The event required a lot of grunt work and was also expensive since participants received a 10-percent store discount besides having the opportunity to win money, said the store's owner, Bruce Dickerson.

That leaves contests just for members of various area fishing clubs such as those sponsored by the Central Basin Steelheaders.
