On the results from last year its shaded green down to 5 spots....is there a signifigance(sp) to that, or just tradition?

We had the top 10 on the leaderboard because 10 is a nice round number and it shows who is on the tails of the leaders, but the top 5 in each category (flatheads and channels) were crowned the "kings" of the cats.

Thanks, and welcome to the contest. Last year was a great time, I'm thinking this year can be even better.

Ya gettn together and wetting lines would be good. As far as big fish, we all know having luck on our side can be the difference maker. The margin of a good night fish-wise to a "skunk" night is thin. The war wages on even when we lose the battle many nights smile.

I have lost the battle many times but I sure haven't thrown the white flag yet. Even the slow nights can be pretty awesome with the right company and an electric chainsaw.......and a slingshot......and some homemade rockets.

I am getting more and more redneck every year.

Nothing better than a few smoke bombs and rockets on a slow night John. Lets hook up again this summer.

Now, Brian's potato gun was a real SHOOTER.

I missed the top 5 by about 8 inches on 3 fish last summer. This season, I'm gunning for the top three. My new home will be the Minnesota. I already have the go ahead from the chief.

Just maybe I will make it there but I can see it will take at least 1 50.

We are way ahead of pace of last year. I would suspect close to 50 serious entrants when all is said and done. I hope for more, but that is my expectations.

Prove me wrong I say and get signed up. smile

Well thats a great thing to have more already then this time last year. Means are sport might go big, and more kitty stuff at more retailers which wouldn't be a bad thing. Oh I spoke with the gander guys and they said that they are shooting for a full isle at least for us this year. I think I b*tched enough about it last year that they finally got the clue that they could sell so much more if they only had it.

Gander Mountain in Mankato said that they are stocking up as well. I went in and they already have a large selection of Team Catfish rods and nice packs of sinkers. They see a lot of people coming in for Catfish stuff for the river and they are catching on.

    • A CO2 detector also protects you from what comes into your house thru a cracked window. Had mine go off last week on red. Turns out the wind had changed and generator exhaust was now blowing towards house. Generator was 50' from the house. 
    • After I got laid off awhile back I searched all of the above daily.  There would be some duplicate jobs posted on every site but a large number would only be found on one site or the other.  Companies seem to have their preferred job board and then stick to it for all their job postings so you really need to look at all of them.    Also don't over look the idea of targeting companies.  If you know a certain area you'd be looking to move to look to see what companies in that area might be able to use someone with your skills.  Then look at those companies job boards if they have them or send in a resume to their HR dept to see if they have any openings.  There are a lot of hidden jobs out there that don't get posted to a normal job board so you need to be savvy to find them.    A recruiter can also help but you need to find the right recruiter. I worked with a few and only one was really any good and had connections to the right kind of jobs for me.  If you can find one that specializes in your field then it might be worth connecting with one.  When i did it didn't cost me anything but a little bit of my time and they were able to hook me up with a decent contract job to help fill in the gap until i got on full time somewhere. 
    • Trump Touts "People Are Seeing Big Stuff” After GM Unveils 7,000 New U.S. Jobs   Confirming rumors that leaked yesterday, GM has just announced plans to invest $1 billion in its U.S. manufacturing operations and add 7,000 jobs domestically, over the next "few years".  Of course, the move follows similar announcements from Ford and Fiat-Chrysler over recent weeks in an apparent effort to appease the incoming Trump administration amid threats of a 35% import tariff and after years of outsourcing automotive manufacturing jobs to Mexico.  To add icing to the cake, GM notes that 450 of the new jobs will come from insourcing jobs previously moved to Mexico.          The winning continues...
    • Hyundai To Boost Investment In The US To $3.1 Billion Over 5 Years   Korea's Hyundai Motor Group said it plans to lift U.S. investment by 50 percent to $3.1 billion over five years and may build a new plant there - the latest auto firm to announce fresh spending after President-elect Donald Trump threatened to tax imports.      
    • This is our year! i feel there is something different about them! I see the passion and intensity they have. Putting the puck on the net is key!
    • OK, let's play you're game. Deficits and debt are no problem, I'll take your word for it.    Please tell me then:
      Why does YOUR party want to reduce the debt?
      Why was your party against debt when Obama was racking it up?
      Why do you vote for Republicans when you don't agree with them on very many issues?
    • What I worried about in the past and why I was not to high on them was because Parise and Sutter were supposed to carry the load but that is evidently no longer the case.  The Sophomores and Juniors have "figured it out" and have stepped up and are carrying the team...not to mention Stall is "reborn".  IMO as long as Dubnyk stays healthy I don't think we have anything to worry about. It is all about he playoffs now as they'd have to take a huge step back not to get in IMO....we'll so how far they can go....with this new found success.  
    • Grain Belt is bottled by Schell's - either one works for me, although my preference is Schell's Deer Brand.  But it's not stocked in a lot of bars or package stores here in the north country.
