Bounty Fishing

5 posts in this topic

Any one ever seen this HSOforum before? I had a co-worker show it to me and apparently you can win money by submitting photos of your fish. You can compete in tourneys online weekly and win real money. Of course it costs a little to play too. Seems they have some rigorous rules for uploading photos to stop photochopping too. Just curious as to if anyone has ever done this or ever even seen it before.

Nope, haven't see it, but that would be pretty cool to check out.

A good concept in theory, but what happens is that a couple of specific lakes and or river dominates.

Case in point, Manitoba and Channel Catfish. The winner always comes from the Red River, and in fact 9 of the top 10 of all time in the contest is from there.

Think of it this way, do you want to compete in a walleye contest here against guys fishing on Erie or the Columbia river smile

Having said that, I recognized 2 FM Bass guys on the winners list.

I think you always have a chance if you are in MN of getting on the board. Sounds like a cool thing just to see some pics anyway.

That was also the only drawback I seen on the site as well. They should do something by region not a free for all. How can we compete here in MN with a 14lb LB from Florida...we can't.
