2018 Catfish Contest catchinon
First cats ever! 5/16/18
Utah Lake
22.5"
11"
Caught on white bass cut bait.
Sorry about no certificate-couldn't find it to save my life! Will have next time.
Ok, added photo with placard.

Nice job getting on the board... good for 22.5 and 11 points...

I see that you and Ahi have posted really small fish. What's the deal with that? Couldn't find anything in the rules, so just wondering. I wouldn't have included the little one as a serious entry otherwise.

There is a side trophy in the contest for the smallest catfish too.

11.5"

Okay, I wasn't going to enter this one but I set a bunch of incremental goals and having three on the board is one of them. Knocks the heck out of my per-fish average, but puts me up a notch or two. Will be replaced soon anyway. I also wanted to try my old cell phone to see if it would be okay.

Guess it would help if I put the photo on. Duh!

Nice got you at 11.5 points and like Bow nut told you we do have a traveling trophy for the smallest catfish caught and entered in the contest... So far I don't think folks are remembering that, so I'll mention in next update... Thanks J

5/26/18
20.5
23.5

Two more goals met: three decent fish on the board and 66 points. Ultimate goal: 100 points! It could happen.

So I need you to post photo's full size so i can zoom in... Really hard to score these from that far away when I can't zoom in to check the measurements... But good for 23.5 and 20.5 points...

Thanks, I will.

Yeah, I plotted it out and extended the trend line. Looks like I won't get a 30 until September and end up with a 32 in October Wink. Okay, I know that the line curves and flattens, but it's fun to pretend. Anyway, I'll just keep on catchinon.

26.5"
Caught on shrimp/worm.

No, this is not the 26.5 that I caught before, though it was within 5 feet of where I caught that one. This one was a lot more torn up.

Nice ugly fish. Maybe we should petition Jeff to add a category to the contest next year -- biggest, smallest, and ugliest. We'd whup those norther guys with ease. I have never seen a northern fish that could match a southern fish for ugliness.

Keep 'em coming... purty or ugly.

Might even have a separate category for ugly fisherman. Too many likely candidates though. And who would do the judging?
