HALF WAY HOME I PASS THIS CAR AND HEAR SOMETHING BOUNCE OFF THE ROOF , YEP THE STEELHEAD BOX !Shocked

PULL OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY , TURNED AROUND AND START WATCHING THE OTHER SIDE OF THE ROAD FOR MY BOX .Unsure

THATS RIGHT , "CRUNCH" . Crazy

I RAN OVER MY OWN TACKLE BOX !!!!!!!!!!Mad

Hello Guys,

Any BigFish clothing will work (hat, beanie, t-shirt, etc..).

Also keep in mind you most definetly do not need to catch all 16 species. As a matter of fact most people don't. The name can be misleading. Really only your best 16 species count. But you could very easily win with only 5 species if they were big fish. Help us get the word out. The more folks we get to play the better. Also people can enter any time before Dec. 31st.

Last year it was a fun close race all the way till the end!

Okay, as soon as I can get myself to the Columbia River on the Oregon/Washington border and can get a pic of me with a nice 10 foot Sturgeon, you can hand over the trophy. Hehe.

That would be fun but I think that's going to be a trip for next year. Although I do want to get out there to visit my brother this year.

  • Fresh Water
  • Name of the species Rainbow Minnow
  • Length 8.25 inch
  • Date caught 4-3-04
  • City and state caught Commerce Twp Michigan



  • sory I lost the tail in the picture, but I thought you might enjoy seeing a minnow that is caught by hook and line.

    we dont have a recorded record for this fish, I have caught them about 12 inches of lenth in years past.

    they are edible, and are often called haring
