Round 2! Fish on!

Post By: TADA32      Posted: 6/7/2020 7:29:45 PM     Points: 14873    
Ok you crazy fishing geeks. I had a lot of fun with the last photo comp, and with all the people asking if I will do another.... well what better time than now. I'm gonna change it up a little bit now.
1. You get one post for photos meaning you can only post the 3 photos allowed in it. (you can keep posting normal posts if you like.) This is only because I will be picking from the top fins up.
2. There will be 2 winners this time. One will be my choice and one will be most fins up.
3. Photos must be of fish this time around. (any species any size.)
4. this will go till July 8th. (just to give some time for people to fish and take pictures of what they really want.)
5. Vote. Please make sure if you post you vote. (If there is a tie for the voted photo I will have the people who tie upload a new photo and it will be re-voted on.

Good luck everyone. Lets see those fish.

One last thing. You can vote as many times as you like. Doesn't have to be just once.

Bron, I saw a kid land a 28" common carp at Centennial Park lake yesterday. He said he used a hot dog for bait and it weighed 17 lbs on his scale, it was a fatty.
 Reply by: bron      Posted: Jun. 9, 6:11:32 PM     Points: 38181    
Ive heard stories about Centennial carp. Havnt fished there since the 80s. Hope to top all these fish sunday...The carp in the middle pic was 29" and 11lbs. One in the right photo was 11lbs caught on a UL.

All three pics from the mile this year... I guess we're finally figuring the lake out! Always the best to see the thrill in the kids faces reeling in a big strong fighting trout!

Before this year I mainly fished for trout since I was a little kid but branched out a little and got a PB and a few firsts to check off the fishing bucket list this year.
1)PB flathead @13lbs (in Iowa on a bluegill I caught an hour before)
2) first wiper I've ever caught (Colorado)
3) first Tiger Trout I've ever caught (Colorado)

It's here geeks. The day you all have been waiting for. Some amazing photos have been posted and the community has done great. Now then lets name them.
For most fins up our winner is troutfinder. Winner winner chicken dinner. The community loved your photos and it shows.
Second place was cookster.
Third Was Niko.
Now then my favorite photos. This was tough. I had to think of this for a while. I feel like some of you had cheated putting your kids in cause I have a soft spot for kids fishing. My daughter loves it. But there can only be one....Highlander. Wait wrong movie. Our winner...
Grats K_hine. Your musky picture has a 10000 words for that 10000 cast fish.
Some very close runner ups.
Panfishin and his daughter.
I2Fly and his pyramid lake Cut.
edawg and his tanker bluegill.
You all have shown what fishing really is and the joy we all get out of it. As for the winners K_hine and troutfinder please email me for details on how to claim your prizes.
Please keep your eyes peeled to the forums for another chance at doing another photo competition. The game will change again.

EDIT: one last thing for you new guys. The points you earn from fins up, can be spent for extra abilities on this site.

Thanks to TADA32 and to everyone on the site for the fins up! my wife snapped that brookie release picture with lucky timing on a high-country lake. If only it didn't have those sun spots it would be a poster on my wall : ) Despite what the books and fly shops say, I LOVE fishing streams on sunny days as the water looks so clear and sometimes the water just sparkles around those colorful wild trout. Finally run-off is ending and the snow is melted so I'm excited about hitting the streams and lakes the next 3 months. Fish On!

TADA gave me a gift card to Bass pro, and I got this cool rod storage thing. No cost to me! I just had to share that these threads are real. Thanks again TADA!
