CPR Catfish Contest (open to everyone) KOTC Shootout

123 posts in this topic

Here are the details for the 2009 King of the Cats Shootout (Part 2):

Contest will run from Mon 8-24 thru Sun 8-30

Contestants will be able to pick 2-24hr periods in which to fish. These 2 days must be declared prior to the start of the contest.or by 6:15am each day The 24 hr periods will run from 8am to 8am

A new control item will be released every day at approx 6:15 am via this thread.

Total Score of Length+Girth of the three (3) biggest fish of either species caught during declared 48 hrs (both days) will be counted towards final total. Enter as many fish as you like, but only the 3 biggest will count.

Photo with fish, contestant, and control item (all in the same picture) must all appear clearly in any submitted fish NO EXCEPTIONS

Any questionable photos will be handled on a case by case basis and I reserve the right to accept or disqualify any questionable photos.

All photos submitted must be digital, and not resized, cropped, or changed in any way. Send full size photo.

This is a catch and release contest, no stringer/rope pics allowed.

Fish may be submitted within 8 hrs of the your declared day ending (example your declared day is Tuesday, then it must be submitted by 4pm WED) to dtrofishon@gmail.com Any submission after the deadline will count as zero pts.

Leaderboard will not be made public to eliminate any “stretching” of the measurements. To dissolve any conflict of interest, I (DTro) will have any fish I enter witnessed by another contestant and also make public my 2 days that I will fish.

I ask that everyone please be honest, it is key to making this a success.

Contest will be limited to 30 contestants.

Borders will be anywhere in the State of MN (including border waters). Contestants must follow all rules and regs on the water that they fish.

Entry fee will be $10

All entries and payouts will be via Paypal (it’s very easy to create an account) Entry payment to be made to dtrofishon@gmail.com

I will take entries starting today (8-18)

I will need a minimum of 10 contestants, otherwise all money will be fully refunded.

First pay first served. All payments after the 30 contestant cutoff will be fully refunded.

Payout will be 100% - 5% paypal processing fee

Rather than make this a big money contest I will be paying out 5 places to spread out the money and keep it fun. The prize structure may be modified depending on the number of contestants.

Based on full entries the payout will be:

1st ----$100 (35%)

2nd ----$71 (25%)

3rd----$56(20%)

4th----$43 (15%)

5th----$15 (5%)

All ties will be decided by the contestant that has the largest fish in their "bag".

Remember this is all about fun!

Good Luck

Here is a list of contestants that will auto update as names are added:

Pull up your skirt and just come up and fish with me one night.

What are you sayin D? shocked Brokeback Jordan fishin? shocked I know I'd be in real trouble if you borrow John's romantical citronella candles.

OK I'm in if you can get out sometime mon-wen...those are the only nights I have off during that time period.

Since I cant keep my almost state record on a rope (it might get stolen while I go get someone to take a picture) I will have to find some other way to meet the pic criteria since I will most likely be flyin solo my other night out.

Now I just need some high heels to go with that skirt and maybe somebody will pick me up in their boat thinking I'm a young female.

I think a catfishermn in a skirt is still manlier than a dude with a boat that has a flashy glittery unicorn puke paint scheme. laugh

Well it's apparent that there are plenty of hungry fish willing to cooperate (results from league last night)

This should be an interesting contest, still time to sign up. For those already in, be sure to let me know the days you plan to fish.

    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.  
    • wear a good balaclava and get a open face with a cold weather breath box never had a problem
    • In my opinion I would look for a nice used wingmaster 2 of my friends have bought a new 870 express about a year apart and they both had the same shell extraction problems. Maybe just a fluke but when I see two different people have the same problem with a Gun makes me think to find a different choice. Heck I have a Mossberg 500 that I treat like poop and I have never had one single malfunction.   I have shot my friends newer express and I can really tell the difference in quality beside my wingmaster  
    • I have Ice Kings.  They are in a word, awesome.  They are about 20-25 years old. Dang I hate dating myself but I have never even bought new liners for these boots.  They are probably one of the finest products I won.  I have never had so much as a chill i my feet.  I usually fish outside but if I am in a flip over, my feet are usually on the ice.  Again, never a chill.  I typically wear a midnight smart wool sock.   For some reason I have been considering new boots.  I guess it is the weight, I would love to have something that is not s heavy and also has better traction.   Today I visited Joe's Sporting Goods and saw some really nice boots (they have a great selection) by Muck, Lacrosse, Sorel, Baffin and some other Canadian made boot that looked very nice. I checked out the ice Kings........they are not the same boot as I have, they don't seem to have the quality to me.  They might be as warm but the rubber feels more stiff almost like it would crack, the uppers are solid leather, mine are leather and corder combo.  The liner also seemed thinner.   After looking at all the boots, I am surprised none offer water proof uppers. Also I am not entirely certain why some seem extend up to your knee with insulation.  Just seems like Over kill because most who would where these boots owed also have some sort of insulated pant on.  Overall I found the boots to be pretty heavy, I was surprised with 20 years past boots have not advanced more.
    • But will be missed but most.............you mad bro?    
    • You boxed yourself.   He was not supporting the Vikings stadium, he was saying that Republicans supported it and now are feigning outrage over the cook subsidy. And then not to be outdone the Republicans are now celebrating the Carrier subsidy.   Pretty much just reinforced his point.      
    • Think we should change the topic to "Trump for Trees."........and all will be well.
    • Had to go all the way back to Missouri to hunt in the snow this year! Beautiful morning but not much movement. Did see some late rut activity Friday.
    • Dotch, you guys over there are almost famous....   Almost because it is Waseca, but whatever.    Mark Seeley's weather blog... http://blog-weathertalk.extension.umn.edu/   .... Waseca now reports 54.13 inches of precipitation for 2016 and this is a new statewide annual precipitation record, surpassing the old one of 53.52" at St Francis (Anoka County) in 1991.
      ....   And an interesting thought...(from Mark, not me) Commentary on Winter TIME: No question will be answered this week, but I want to take TIME to make a comment about Winter TIME. Managing the TIME in the Winter Season in Minnesota is a different ball game than other seasons of the year, because everything takes longer. No question winter will be felt more frequently soon in the daily weather, and snowfalls will become more frequent this month. The rash of bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular accidents reported during the snow storms towards the end of November reminded me about adjusting for Winter TIME. Our concept of time needs to be adjusted. Lengthen the time intervals that you have intuitively built-into your everyday habits and tasks. It takes longer to walk places, longer to drive places, longer to dress and undress, longer to warm up the car, longer to degomble (shed snow) when you come into the house. You need to make time to shovel snow, scrape the windshield, clean the furnace filters, When you walk take shorter steps and not too fast...put the boots, gloves and hat on when you go outside....check on the neighbor if their place hasn't been shoveled...everything should slow down..except for the long Minnesota goodbye..that is better shortened...just say goodbye, open the door, leave and close the door behind you....no need to stand in an open doorway for minutes conversing about last minute stuff. Winter TIME is an adjustment that may save you anxiety, regret, or even injury.
