on the water competition

Recommended Posts

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).

    • Thought this was a good pod cast   http://podcasts.joerogan.net/podcasts/doug-duren-bryan-richards
    • who has time for that? haha here is some stuff from the same biologist https://www.usgs.gov/staff-profiles/bryan-richards?qt-staff_profile_science_products=3#qt-staff_profile_science_products    
    • Holy craap!  There is pee all over the woods, the DNR needs to stop this before all the Deer and we die!  😨
    • Rank is the order on which you draw for your prefered spot. #1 chooses first. #2 chooses second, etc.   I was drawn as the #1 alternate for the MN DNR hunt, Hwy 61 & Warner Rd in St Paul.  This is a new one for me.
    • The article in the Strib.     www.startribune.com/louisiana-to-hunters-deer-urine-lures-might-spread-disease/490173741/   Why we are still allowing deer urine to be shipped and sold is beyond me.    That Joe Rogan podcast was very interesting and informative.   Well worth the time.  
    • If you are one of the lucky ones who drew a moose permit and ready for Alaska Moose Hunting. These tips and basic hunting guidelines helps you to successful harvest:   Hunt for moose near food sources and water. Use rifle rather than  arrow, bowstring Wear good quality and waterproof boots Moose also have great hearing so wearing clothes that  does not make any noise. Hunt during  August, September. This is best season  for Moose hunting   Hope these tips helpful for you. Contact us if you’re thinking about going on a moose hunt.
    • Might just have to make a little extra for breakfast this weekend and use a little self-control and not eat it for a mid morning snack.
    • Trailcampro.com is a good resource to read their reviews and they have a good warranty. Personal.... I don’t buy a trail cams over $120.         The best time to buy is Black Friday or at the end of the season.  I mostly use stealth cam and moutry. Hope this helps. 
    • Anybody draw? I drew a primary and am pretty excited. This is my first year with the program so wasn’t sure what to expect. What does the rank mean? 
    • Google can probably conjur up some text for the video impared.
