I did last year. I kept a log with length, girth, time, place and bait used. Also took pics but I still have never developed them yet. Biggest channel I got last year was a 33" just never enter it cause I never got my pic developed. Biggest Flat was the one in my profile 40x26 at 30lb.

No just take your measurements length and girth and take a pic with our KOTC logo, for us it's our hats. It works better with two people but by yourself I just take a pic of the fish and the logo. So when you enter a fish you send in a pic with length and girth with KOTC logo visible.

So it is all on the honor system. Well at least we have a bunch of honest guys on here.

Thats another one that still will not work for me. For the life of me I can't get a picture up on my profile.

You need a photobucket. Once you have your pic downloaded you have to resize it to aviator and then copy the direct link then paste it in you profile. There's also a post on doing just that but I don't remember were it is

Ok we like to tell stories, but we don't cheat.

I'm surprised there was no glove comment to that pic.

Also not sure why that cat was bleeding so badly from the tail.

How did you find that pic by the way. Was that the one I sent Darren?

I just right clicked on the Red X that was showing up as your Avatar and pulled the properties on it. I got the link to your photo from that (which is what I pasted in my earlier post) but there was some other Imageshack stuff in the link that was causing your photo to not show up right. I cleaned it up, you pasted it into your profile, and voila!

I shouldn't talk I got two gloves on in my pic but in my defense my hand were tore up pretty bad that night, which is a good thing means the fish were really going that night

lol Man I was tired of get my hands tore up. That cat was caught on a decoy sucker. That was the first time I had ever seen a channel take a big sucker. I thought it was a decent flathead being that I had like eight fish that night. Well eight fish between two of us.

    • DonBo, good luck on your bow quest,  your father raised you well!  What a great way to celebrate life by sharing a hunt together.
    • My family has LIfe 360 on our phones. It allows you to know exactly where that phone is at all times. My teenage kids were not to hip on the idea until my wife explained that you either have the app or you don't have a phone. It already saved a phone. My son dropped his phone in the middle of a bean field last summer.  We were able to use the app to drive a wheeler to within 10ft. Well worth it.
    • My personal opinion on the backup pumps is that they are a stop gap to buy you enough time to minimize the amount of water that backs up during a torrential storm while you get your primary pumps on a generator.    Obviously the biggest factor is to figure out how much water can enter the drainage system during the heaviest downpours and that can help you decide what gpm you need to stay ahead of the water. If you get a bigger backup pump then you will burn through a battery faster.    If you don't get a lot of water in the system ever and if the sump pump only runs periodically during even heavy rains and wet weather then you can get more run time from a smaller system.    There really isn't a way to say exactly what you need to be 100%safe unless you know exactly what flows you have.
    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
    • They will lose 90 to 100 games again this year. They do not have the pitching to even get to 500. Santana will be our lone all-star and be traded before end of year. Hope something changes but they did not add anything for starters or offensive so until they do we will get the same junk. Really sucks cause i love watching and listening to the games all summer long.
    • % of people that have picked that person. 
    • Some rainy river monsters! 61" 60" and a 54"! Have a look!  
    • Many big sturgeon boated this past week again.  Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river.  Fish different holes until you find fish.  Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred.  Pike fishing is going good right now in shallow bays and on the Rainy River. Best methods so far are using buzz baits or lying a frozen cisco on bottom with a hook and weight(similar to a sturgeon rig but with less weight).   Pike are active in bays. The lake and bays and water starting to warm up and pike are being caught.  Pike are open all year up on LOW.   Up at the NW Angle, the ice is gone and it's open water.  Remember, walleyes open May 13th, pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN and sturgeon fishing through May 15th and then again July 1st.
