State Vs State Episode 4

Recommended Posts

In 2008 I started a contest for the largest bass relative to your state record and it's that time of year again. We are starting a little earlier this year to give the southern guys a shot at the end of the spawn and going to run through the middle of June for you northern folks. So if you guys are ready then let's get signed up.

If you want to play, then all you have to do is declare your intention to get whipped by us Florida guys this year. I know I said that last time, maybe it will come true one year. Actually this should be named the "Let's see who can beat Dwight" tournament. If you play, you will find out why.

This contest will run from daylight on March 15th through dark on June 12th. Anyone who has posted to this thread by midnight on March 14th is eligible to play.

Prizes to be determined at a later date.

RULES

1. This is for FUN...

2. There are 3 classes this year. Largemouth, Smallmouth, and Spotted. You must have submitted your entry prior to midnight March 14, 2012.

3. This contest runs from daybreak on March 15th, 2012 to sunset on June 12, 2012.

4. Artificial bait ONLY. If you are sight fishing, the fish must be hooked inside the mouth. All fish must be caught in PUBLIC fishing areas. No private stocked ponds (ie you own the pond and are raising trophies).

5. Scoring of the fish shall be completed as follows:

Example

FW = fish weight = 10.5 lbs (my pb)

SR = state record Fl = 17.27 lbs

FW / SR x 100 = your score

10.5/17.27x100 = 60.80 rounded to 2 decimals

In order for your fish to count, you must submit a picture, the state record weight for the state the fish was caught in, and an accurate weight of the fish. You can submit fish caught in different States but only your highest score counts. Your fish must be submitted within one week of being caught. (No sandbagging) You may submit as many fish as you want as long as subsequently caught fish score higher. All fish must be submitted before 7 am on June 13th, 2011.

6. You can be disqualified for unsportsmanlike behavior. The definition of "unsportsmanlike" is completely at the discretion of myself and the moderators.

7. Entry Fee - You must post your intention to play on this thread prior to midnight March 14th.

Directors Note-----Have fun, catch fish, and post your results......

PS - there is a side contest for the old timers at registration. Post your best "avid" look-a-like photo. The best one in my opinion gets a bonus prize. You will be judged on composition as well as content.

PSS - if you have to ask "what is an avid photo" then, you don't qualify for this part... :D

To reserve a place at the table, I guess I'll say I'm in. However, the last couple years I've caught my biggest bass of the year in the winter...before the start of the contest... :lol:

I am in! I think i barely lost and took 2nd place last time with a good ol' Minnesota bass. Since Dwight will be in this thing, i say we play for 2nd place and the first place winner is automatically disqualified for cheating or whatever excuse we can come up with.

Ok, one of the "unspoken" rules is you have to have a name to play. I see that you are from Ar Kansas :laugh5: and we try to cut you boys some slack, but I still need a name. A bunch of artsy fartsy little symbols does not work in my brain. :D
