Thanks Forest, I selected match format to add it to the top 20 and didn't think about the text color being changed.. I appreciate that catch... Thanks Jeff

Little update Bryton helped team north add a little room to the top 20 lead as he moved up the charts a little further... Here's the new update... J

Jeff, not sure if it's your spreadsheet or my math, but you got 27 points on the south team total that isn't anywhere I can find by adding up all their individual scores.
You have 1982.5, my total is 1955.5
Is there another southern member that got cut off your standings?

Hey Forest Iíll check, maybe Iím counting one twice. I donít look at that score like I do the other two categories. I programmed it at the first of the season and havenít looked at it since. Thanks for the heads up. Jeff

Forest, I've been through my program, it looks accurate. Have you double checked your numbers? Perhaps you missed one in there somewhere... Anyway we are getting blown out of the water so far on that category I don't think we have a chance, so I'm not spending too much time there... Way more southern catters this year than northerners and as a whole they are rocking the size charts too... Later J

I'll bet you guys were waiting for an update? Not that much happened last weekend... But in case you weren't following the events, it was a wild weekend with 3 fish at 31" coming in, and a 30 and several 29.5"s... When the numbers were crunched and added up it looks like the north still leads the top ten, but by a lot smaller margin than most of the season... The south has taken the lead in the top 20 and folks bounced all around in the individual placements... Nice job everyone you really put in some big numbers... Here's the charts... J

Update, lots of 28 + fish coming in, so lots of folks moving on up through the 80's... Here is the current standings as I have them, if I goofed on your score please let me know and I'll check it out and fix it where I can.. Amazing this year how many higher scores we have compared to past years... Great effort by so many of you cat hounds... Here's the current chart, and yes the south is still ahead on the top 20... North has the top 10 lead... Later J

Quick update, several new nice fish hit the board, they pulled the south a little further into the lead on the top twenty fish... Team north better get out and find some top 20 fish to enter... Top 10 guys are doing great, but us in the second tier need to step it up... here's the chart... J

I'm sorry for the long delay in updates, but I'm back and don't have any further play plans between now and the end of the contest (Two weeks from today it will be over)
Last day for entries is October 15th and we have a tight fight for the first 3 positions, maybe one of the first times it has been so much up in the air at this point of the contest... North still leads the top ten, but south holds onto a top 20 lead.... Here are the current numbers let's see what the final two weeks will do to the placements... Later J

Heading into the home stretch and still bump fish showing up this year... This is unusual, but way to go Craig moved into the top ten... Well just 8 days left of the competition and team south has moved up to a 2.5 point lead in the top 20.... Looks like team north mid-tier folks need to get out and catch some fish... yes I know that's me... I might be able to get out next Monday, so I hope there will still be a hungry cat around that is big enough to do me some good... Top ten and chart topper is still team north, here are the numbers... Later J

Couple Updates including another over 31 club fish.. Nice job Sharksugar... We have a contest going on again in the top 20, 1/2" separates the two teams so going down to the wire it's a horse or (cat) race... This should motivate us to give it another try... Here's the chart... Later J

Just keeping you up to date with the latest... Tyfighter got another bumper kitty and the rest has remained quite so far... I understand lots of folks are out giving it one more shot today, so we'll see what happens for tomorrows final placements... Good luck all... Jeff

Oh forgot the most important number for the teams, bragging rights belong to team north for the top ten at 311 points to 303.5 points....

OUTSTANDING TO ALL CONTESTANTS !! Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink

This has been a real blast for the wife (TinCansMate) and me (Tin Can) . We have always loved to fish together, but the added aspect of the friendly competition and meeting some of our North Team members as well as our Southern "rivals" has made our times together on the water at Utah Lake and Bear River even more enjoyable.

Hope to see ya'll at the dinner. Fish On

Great summary Jeff!

Thanks again for all you do to let us have more fun!

Congratulations to all those who had a great year!

The south will rise again, but we might all have to go up north and get our one out of area fish to do itWink

Thanks Jim and Forest, Iím really glad that you guys like this craziness. Iím really not a very competitive type person, but for some reason when it comes to the cat contest and ice challenge I get possessed to try and do well. Not that I want to beat anyone, but I want to push what I can accomplish. Hope it doesnít ruin our enjoyment of a wonderful sport but it sure helps me get out on the days when I might rather be lazy. Thanks for staying interested and keeping others going by both of you guys posts. They have been a blast to follow even though I didnít always have time to respond I made sure to read them. Even the full story not just the ES. Well I put the last hay in my shed this afternoon, got some to take to the neighbors and Iím finally done with the field jobs. Been a long busy summer Iím ready for ice season. Later Jeff
