Funny he placed third in the other site. the guy who won looked like he did a lot of fresh water fishing as well. Let that be a lesson to us. Do not avoid fresh water.

Will try and have it up by the 1st, Have to see what I can get done tonight.

Still trying to think if I should order hawg trough with a CCKF logo on it...

What do you guys think??? If would up the cost of the year long tournament but still be reasonable plus you get a board to measure your fish keeps the guess work out of it.

I like the Idea of an offical measuring device. Make mine where an inch equals 3 for me.

for next year you should also consider making a rule that the fish has to have a closed mouth. i saw a few fish that would have been an inch or two shorter of what was claimed. closed mouth just makes it more fair for every one whether you meant to or not. i saw it on the nor cal site and i have to agree with its logic.

also we should have a spearfisherman of the year award so i can get publicly owned by andrew.

Not sure about an inch or two, maybe a half inch. I have not found anything in writing saying fish are longer with open mouths. Some states require a tail pinch to get final length and some prohibit it depending on the spiecies, but that is for harvest not a contest. I did find these rules for 321 fish

this is true at time. but with the dead fish you just have to be a little more forceful.

So if how will DFG measure the fish . I thought is was bu the longest length. But so if I get this right, all we have to do is make sure the mouth is shut. After putting foot on tail and stretching the fish as much as possible. then we measure the fish. DO I have that right?  :P :P

Not too sure about this, Ive done the test my self multiple times and have noticed the same thing and always to be the case when if tried them both ways. So if you want the most points close those mouths...  :) :) :)

Here is some examples first two are open mouthed.

The these two are of Closed mouthed. Id say you are gonna loose length if you open the mouth.

I thinl it depends on the type of fish.
Title: Re: So is 2012 AOTY
Post by: Impractical Fishermen on December 06, 2012, 10:03 PM
With a Crappie I am sure it makes a difference but not a Halibut, Bass, Rock fish or Ling. Either way, I like these things because I get to see pictures of fish.  :D
Title: Re: So is 2012 AOTY
Post by: Big_Berg on December 06, 2012, 11:04 PM
with rockfish and other fish of the seam i noticed that if the mouth is slightly open there is an advantage. i have not tried the mouth all the way open like you demonstrated with that bass.

+1 x10!
Try your best to get an accurate pic w/mouth closed. But sometimes it isn't possible. And in most cases, it wouldn't have a significant impact on overall length anyways.

How much is the buy-in? And how much extra would it be with the CCKF Hawg Troughs?
I'm gonna signup regardless, but it w/b cool to have a CCKF trough.

Also, have you considered providing some sort of "swag bag" for people who signup? I'd personally contribute an Andy1976 leadhead and a BH swimbait to each bag.
Title: Re: So is 2012 AOTY
Post by: Derrick A2H on December 07, 2012, 02:18 PM
Lol thatd be sweet but not economical due to shipping charges. Swag bags are more of a tourny thing for that reason. Maybe if our sponsors want to at our award ceremony fish an chill 
Title: Re: So is 2012 AOTY
Post by: Sin Coast on December 07, 2012, 02:33 PM
Oh yeah, I'm not saying ship them. You gotta pick it up @ the awards ceremony/fish n chill or make arrangements for a buddy to pick it up.
Still down to prsonally contribute something toward a swag bag. We've had em for the last 7yrs of AOTY on the other site, but it's all donatd by sponsors.

Hey Ryan wtf?! I just looked at those pics again and noticed something = you got a Hobie?

Also found out if you take a 16 1/4 inch Vermilion and open it's mouth you get an extra 3/4 inch.  :o
