What if we catch 30 different species? Do we get points on all 30 or do we get points just for the largest 16?

I know it's too late to change the rules for this year. Perhaps on next years competition there could be 1 bonus point for every fish over the 16 total species.

Last year we had the most species clasification, "lonehunter" took that honor Shocked

we like to change the rules of the game every year, there is no telling what next year will bring.

if this site turns in to a gold mine we might have solid gold bass rods to play forTongue

at this time I can neather conferm nor denie what the next year will bring... so dont rule it out, but dont rule it in Angelic

This weeks scores are in, and another dozen species were entered. Cool

Freshwater moves back in the lead for Biggest fish (longest) you wont belive the species nor would you beleive who brought it in... The biggest fish just keeps growing inch by inch...Shocked

yours truly closes the gap for 3 place in the freshwater division. Shocked

Do drop in on the 16 species contest and say howdy to our contenders and enter a species yourself.

Well that clown is still holding first place for the biggest fish!

you will never guess who has moved up in first place for the fresh water division. the fresh water division is running gill and gill!!! with just 5 points differance from first place to third place....

Our salt water dude is holding his own, scores of points ahead of the nerest competitor... but I hear that there are some salty dowgs with some pic's on film waiting to be developed.... and yet others who have not made it out to the great pond yet....

with 7 months to go its any body's game... Dont wait till the last day to start entering! you can always upgrade your species if you catch a bigger one....

Did you finally get that elusive Northern? I'm off today despite my cough and sniffles and expected rain. I hear the cats are biting and I've gotta catch me a carp or two to add 20+ inches to my score. Plus I've gotta get that 30+ inch Northern that keeps getting off of everybody else's hooks where I caught the one I post.

no not yet he is still on my list, but I did see a tinny one about 26 inches, wasnt much bigger than a hammer handle....

I wasnt fishing the lake I wanted to target pike on... I was fishing a lake that was best suited for bass... lots of shallow, lots of structure,

I know guys its been a couple weeks since my last report. Been vary bussy on the home front...

This dosnt mean that the contest has been slow... in the last couple weeks we have had a couple heavy hitters step up to plate with a had full of some excilent catches and moved right up to near half way to our first place contender...Shocked

Fresh water guys are holding the front still for the biggest fish (longest) by an inch over our salt water guys Tongue I know this record wont last, and I also know there are a few fresh water guys out searching for muskies, pike, stergeon and cat fish. I also hear that there a some salt water guys out looking for shark, tuna, cudas, halibuts, and stergeon.... looks like this years biggest fish event will be a photo finish...Sly

Good luck to all and dont forget to enter often and enter your shots on the wall of fame

Sounds like I've got a ways to go. Man, I haven't been able to get anything to bite except hammerhandles smaller than the one I posted. Not even bullheads and carp like my hooks this year!

I am getting my share of spouts here...

after yesterdays down pour my front yard and drive way was submerged under a foot of water.

It went down in about an hour after I got home and unplugged the ditch so it could drain in to my back yard where there was two foot of water.

I walked back there today, the standing water was gone but the whole yard was like walking on a giant spunge...Frown

Well it was bound to happen, the fresh water fish was knocked out of first place with a salt water fish... Great work guys.Cool

since my last report we have had a score of fish enter the contest.... Contestant scores are climbing, but still not so high that they couldnt be reached.

Still plenty of time to get your entries in... good luck.

It is mid term of the contest and there are 100+ fish already entered in to this years contest. salt water leads the pack with the biggest fish and the higest score but the fresh water game is holding its own.
