on the water competition

14 posts in this topic

do any of you do little on the water competitions with your buddies? What are your favorites?

We play baseball in my boat an idea i believe that derives from CHM here on the boards - here is how you play

1lb- 1.15 is a single

2lbs- 2.15 is a double

3lbs- 3.15 is a triple

4+ is a home run

that is the basics you can get more complex if you want like catching less than a pound is an out or if you miss a fish it is a strike. Competition brings out the best in you.

So lets hear yours i am looking for some new ones.

Cecil- I think he is saying 1 to 1lb 15 oz.. not 1.15.

My typical bet.. is pretty darn easy.. A signed $1 to the person who catches the largest fish. Cheap, yet something you can dangle in the face of the looser for many years after!!!! I have a collection!

Aha!!! That makes sense! You have a collection of the dollars you have given away? That's nice! smile

On the bright side if you lose, you can say your signature is worth something.

We play fishing poker. Got the idea from this site then modified the rules alittle. everyone puts $5 in the pot. For every fish you catch you get a card. First person to get five cards ends the game. at that time whom ever has the best hand wins. Just because you have more cards doesn't mean you win. For us all fish are worth 1 card exept pike are worth 2 and tulabee are worth 3 cards. However, if you catch an eelapout you have to put your best card in the bottom of the deck. Your buddies pick which card that is, not you. If you catch a pout before you have any cards you atomatically lose! I hate pout!!!

Ooh, that would be fun too. I would play until end of day though and anything over 5 pounds gets you a wild or something.

I'd keep drawing for the whole day, and let you only have 5 cards at a time. I'd hate to lose to someone with 2 undersized fish and a lucky draw. If the fishin is good no less than a full house should win (just like bowling).

    • Sounds like the Preds and Pens were also hot after him so we won the bidding war, that would explain the price. We might end up facing the Preds in the first round so better we have him than them. Don't know much about Hanzel but from what I am reading he is big, good face off & pk guy and contributes a little offence. Maybe not a huge upgrade over Haula but having him on the 4th could be huge for us if him and Stewart can get something going. White looks kind of like a depth 4th liner so there is that as well. Should be a fun rest of the season, always fun to get new toys around March even if they haven't worked out in the past.
    •   And yet more credible than Trump:  
    •   Paradox : BD2 and an open mind.
    • It's been going on for years. Just look at how many times the Howard Stern show has pranked the news with fake guests.
    • Maybe some people feel a  lbgt,, black lives matter, sierra club, feminist, white guilt, supported candidate better represents them than say an NRA endorced candidate.
    •    I think they do as good of a job as to be expected. Pills are highly regulated. International web deliveries and dirty doctors are a little tricky to weed out.      Nope, we'll use your logic and decriminalize driving under the influence.   Problem solved.   Should eradicate fatalities of those types as since it is legal, it no longer appeals to folks, they stop doing it.     Explain in detail, in a country, filled with people who love over consumption, that consume 80% of the drugs on the entire planet, how that would work.   Start stuttering.     That's about right. One word in depth answers.   On an idea that will not work in this country.   "I think we can learn that we should stop being reflexively opposed when someone else does [decriminalize] and should take seriously the possibility that anti-user enforcement isn't having much influence on our drug consumption," says Mark Kleiman, author of the forthcoming When Brute Force Fails: How to Have Less Crime and Less Punishment and director of the drug policy analysis program at UCLA. Kleiman does not consider Portugal a realistic model for the U.S., however, because of differences in size and culture between the two countries.   http://content.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1893946,00.html        It's your idea, you explain it and sell it.   You lazy fraud.
    • Wowza, I guess we are going for, no better year I suppose. We are now crazy deep at center and that is a good good thing, hopefully the new guys can mesh with the lineup right away.
    • So much fun to watch the media just lose all credibility, I suspect there will be more fun to come.

    • I think he means keep the prisons full and the private prison industry in money at all costs. Welcome to the wonderful world of donor $$$ "trumping" common sense. Nothing like buying laws so you can profit, not that this is anything new.
