Nice fish guys! the open water event that includes gills and crappie division will soon commence!
Who thinks they can catch a huge Gill through the ice? Enter it in the MTs monster bluegill on ice derby!
It starts this weekend, and goes til the ice is gone! Why didn't I start this at the beginning of the ice season? because I just thought of it now!
Just catch a monster bluegill, and if you think it could be the big one, take a pic, post it on this thread, or email it to me and I will post it on the leaderboard on here! I am going by length, not weight, since most don't have the best scale for getting an accurate number.
Take it on a board so it is touching the "0" side, and whatever the tail toutches, that is your length! Here is an example:
Also, to verify that you caught it this year, put your name and "2010" on a piece of paper clearly readable and inclue it in your picture.
Entry is free and open to anyone that is fishing through a hole in the ice.
No dead beat up or frozen fish will count, take a pic right when you catch it, that is when they look best!
Here is the prize, not a new truck or anything like that, but not bad for a free contest, a framed "2D lifesize replica" of your winning catch. Here is a one I made last fall:
