Well you sort of had it stolen from you last year with a 33"er that foiled all your 30's, but I'm betting you'll be a tough competitor this year, best of luck... Later J

20"

still no biggies but all bet first fish entered

Sorry Ahi I didn't see these before, looks like you had the first fish on the board, that one was good for 19, but these 3 beat it, and I'm sorry but I can only give you 20.5, 20.5 and 20 points... But your new bump board looks great and I think it will help you get the full measures from hear on... Nice job I didn't expect north fish for some time... Thanks J

28"

Oh man, wish I could round up, that is so freaking close to 28.5, but since this one will probably be a counter I better live with the letter of the contest and only give what the picture shows... So 28 points even though I struggled not being able to give you 28.5... Very nice fish, you are a master.... nice job... J

That's a nice cat. Sure looks like you should be able to stretch another 1/16 of an inch out of him. Oh well, you will probably bump him before too much longer anyway.

Good luck and keep 'em coming.

Cutler
27"

Sorry about the glare but that is my banner. I have it in a baggie didn't know it would reflect the light that much. your call

Ahi, I can see your intent was good on the label and we have seen it in other pictures and I know this is your first year with the bump board, so I know it is this years fish... But you have got to get those glasses fixed, I see 28.5" not 27... Or else maybe I need to get mine fixed... Anyway good for 28.5 points... Now about poaching my fish out from under me..... I fish all year and don't find that big of fish, way to go... J

Hey guys don't forget to enter those little bait stealers. There's a cool traveling trophy for the smallest.

Nice job good for 7 points and the lead for the traveling trophy... Later J

30 "

post two pictures hope you can read the numbers on one of them.

Wow what a beauty, that's a nice fish... Hey it is hard to read, but I could count down from 36 and you are good for 30.5 points, but I think if the pictures were better you might have gotten close to 31 points on that one, but it's so hard to read I can't give you more than the 30.5..

small cat entry.
5 inch bull head cat
bear river

Bad angle on the picture, if that was for a big fish I couldn't count it since I can't see its nose, but since this is for the small fish it might actually be smaller, so good for 5 points...

30? looked 30 out in the field review picture it looks short your call Jeff.

Wow what a beautifully ugly cat... Nice catch... On my scoring I line up the two 30" points with a straight line and try to make a point parallel with the mark on the tape... Both methods this fish shows about 1/16" short of 30 so all I can give you is 29.5 points and my respect for a true trophy fish... nice job Ahi.... J
