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:

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.

    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
    •   Have you tried to get it out in the water and running it at higher speeds for a while to see if it will clear it's self?
    • Trying to get some idea as to how much I will need to spend to get my 1997 Yamaha 30 hp running again.  The motor sat for nearly 11/2 yrs after I had bought it. before I got around to starting it in Oct.  I followed the owner's manual recommendation to use pre-mix 50:1 gas oil, even though it has oil injection.  Anyway, motor would start(Elec. start), not real quickly, but after starting, would begin to cough and then choke out after a few seconds.This happened repeatedly despite different choke settings, etc.until I finally thought it better to quit fooling with it.  Called a repair place in my hometown outside the metro and he wanted to wait till Spring to look at it.  Said it probably needs new carb kits or carbs and plugs.  Also want him to put in new impeller and lower unit seals. Just wondering what an ave. fair price would be to have that done, provided there isn't anything else wrong?  I live in SW Metro area, but really don't know where to take it around here that I trust anymore. any ideas, help would be greatly appreciated.  Repairman didn't want to give est. without looking at it.  Can't blame him, but don't want to get totally ripped off either.
    •   Actually, I have a case of 17 Beers left that I bought to the GTG last weekend still. Someone drank one! Since I'm not a big Beer guy I have been going over all the things I can make with beer. Beer Cheese soup, beard, fish batter, boil some wild rice venny brats in beer? Or just give it to one of my buddies?
    • Actually no one from either side, none, notta, zip.  
    • Large segments of the right and left are probably wishing they teamed up for Johnson right about now, they might not admit it but if they could go back and change their vote I wonder how many would. One thing is perfectly clear and that is neither Trump or Hillary was the answer. However they more than likely speed up the process of dumping the two party system so it's all good.
    •   If there is no easy money to be made the bad guys will do something else, you won't eliminate them completely unless you legalize everything but maybe they move on to something else. Take away that money and you solve a lot of problems at once for a lot of people. Not much incentive for people to sell hooch these days and it is as simple as that.

      I don't think you realize how bad the war on drugs is, we are talking world wide impact here. Heck in Mexico alone how many people are the cartels killing, it is a blood bath down there. Remove the millions that they make and that motivation is gone. How many police had been killed in drug related incidents in the past 50 years? The overdose deaths and accidents are going to happen no matter what you do, there is no stopping those but maybe you can prevent them with better treatment programs. You also have a massive prison population with large numbers of them incarcerated for drug crimes, now I'm now about letting violent offenders free but the rest of them are worth a look on a case by case bassi. Then you look at all of the above and all how all of their families have been affected by it. If you want to start helping people you need to start by ending the war.
    • Wow! That's pretty low. You should be ashamed!
    •   Stop it!! That's just silly talk.  (Sarcasm)   Mike
