I propose a fishing contest!

#1 Post by RiverLiver » Fri Apr 14, 2006 7:27 am

How about it? An online fishing contest to last throughout the summer.

RULES:

1. Catch Fish
2. Take picture
3. Post Picture, length, weight, and type of fish on PB Forum.
4. Best fish at cutoff date wins.

Prize: Bragging rights (and maybe a specially designed "champion" avatar or something).

"Best Fish" is judged as follows: All species of fish are allowed. Your fish will be compared to the record holding fish of the same state from which the fish is caught. Your score is the precentile between the 2 fish. Highest percentile on any given fish wins.

Example:

Largemouth Bass

Riverlivers Catch: 7.20
Michigan State Record: 11.94

Score: 60.3

How about starting now (4/14/06), thru the fall equinox (9/23/06).

I agree with the stickiness.

Let the games begin, and may the best angler win.

Sweet, it's on!

I'm also thinking about a "largest breasts" contest. Here's how it works:

1. Take your camera to the lake
2. Spot, and take picture of the largest pair you can find
3. Post pic on PBF
4. All members judge for a winner

What do you think?

Maybe "best breast" would be better? Size would be a key ingredient but quality and location should factor in as well!
