Just as a teaser and an inducement, one of the prizes I'm offering is a pair of Heat Holder socks. You ice anglers and tubers, note well!

Dang, I want some of those! I just learned about them and am intrigued. I've had my toes frostbitten before (yes, I was an idiot, no elk is worth that) and it is not fun. Thanks for the help, Rocky.

Okay last shaking of the bushes for folks to come to the meal. If we don't find 9 more to come join us, they will be charging us $50 in addition to what everyone buys, or tomorrow we may have to go somewhere else besides Holy Smoke... So please let me know if you'd like to join us... Thanks Jeff

Very good that will get us closer. We now need 6 more. I tried Jesse and Ashlie and they said you had already asked them and their answer was still no. Thank you very much. J

Okay everyone let's stay at Holy Smoke for the get together, we now have about 27 coming so it won't be too bad to make up the additional cost of them staying open for us... Plus the Golden Corral was $11.99 a person not counting drinks and i think HS will be around $8-$9 before the drinks... Anyway, see you all tomorrow, if anyone else wants to come, that would be great!!! They have room for more, we just needed to hit a minimum to justify him keeping staff on work... Anyway should be good, Craig has been busy as a bee lining up prizes and I think there will be a good chance most might get a raffle prize... Look forward to seeing you there, thanks all for your support... Jeff

#28! I've been wanting to post, but waited to be sure I could clear my schedule. Today I changed my dentist appointment and can now say I will be very happy to meet and eat fine food with my fishing friends and celebrate those who have participated in our catfish contest!

(#29?*)

Let's go fishing! I prefer to fish with others. I'm well equipped with plenty to share and have a vehicle with amazing off road capabilities to get us to even hard to reach fishing destinations. Let's team up! Private Message me to suggest I come to where you're fishing or plan a trip with me! Now that it will soon be ice fishing season, let's become a team and enter tournaments!

be prepared, be very prepared

Dinner & Movie date proposal: Fantastic Beasts 2 at the Jorden Commons in Sandy on Tuesday, November 27. Let's plan our fishing trip.

As one final inducement, we just got another $117 to spend on prizes. Now that we have everyone covered I plan to get some really nice door prizes.

Hey Craig why don’t you start passing on the names of our sponsors this year. You have done an amazing job rounding up prizes from some great, generous sponsors and we need to thank them and see if we can get our members to go into these stores and thank the managers. These guys make it so we can do contests without a fee and still have some great prizes. I personally would like to thank them and our members that kick in to help with prizes and covering other costs. It’s always amazing to me the generosity that we find each time our events come around. Thank you all. Jeff

Good idea, Jeff.

Sportsman's Warehouse in Provo gave us a very nice Pflueger reel.

Big 5 in Spanish Fork gave the largest prize which translated into some fine fishing gear.

The corner store by my house gave us a spinning lure. They are the Tesoro station, Fast Gas, at the top of the hill as you head out of Spanish Fork up the canyon. They stock worms of all types, so if you're headed for Scofield, Cleveland, Huntington, etc. and need some bait this is the place. Nice people, too.

We received gift cards from several different CAL Ranch stores from Logan to Spanish Fork, including Farr West, Layton, and West Jordan. We used some for fishing things, and will be passing out a couple of the gift cards, as well.

Walmart of Spanish Fork gave us a large contribution which resulted in one of the main prizes and a lot of other fishy stuff for door prizes.

Other prizes have been contributed by Maniac Lures and RockyRaab.

Gathering up these prizes has been a lot of fun--I feel like Santa Claus, and look like one, too! See you all tonight.

Thanks so much Craig you’ve done a wonderful job getting us well supplied with prizes. Be a great ending to our biggest cat season ever. Over 100 signed up this year and over half of them actively caught and enter fish. Ahi (John) tonight’s winner caught 3 fish that went 32” or bigger to score 96.5 points a new high score for contest winners. Fun year so that’s every one. Later J

Jeff, Yes, thanks for all of your work to make this an excellent event!
Craig, Thanks for gathering some prizes for the fishermen. I'll be proud to wear my Big Fish Tackle tee shirt ice fishing! Kurt, Great to see you again. I have excellent memories of our Willard fishing trip years ago and enjoy the pictures you took. Moose Man - great to meet you and your family. All the rest, nice to see you again or meet you!

Jeff, Wife and I had a very enjoyable nite at Holy Smokes Thursday. The company of anglers I have known a while and others I met face to face for the first time was the highlight of the Catfish Contest. You do outstanding work for all the BFT occasions and we are greatly appreciative.

To all the North and South competitors this year, even without hooking that elusive 36 incher, we had a blast. Fishing the Bear River with John numerous time was great. And even trying to poach a big Cat out of Utah Lake was lots of fun. Looking forward to next year.

As I don't ice fish, and tend to go into semi hibernation during the winter, just because you don't see post from us, won't mean we aren't checking in on all the BFT'ers now and then.

All of you have a great and safe up coming Thanksgiving weekend and be safe out on the hard water when and if you go.
