OK guys I had and idea ran it by the officers and they all gave it the thumbs up so here goes...
We will have a photo contest for a club angler fighting a fish in their kayak or canoe. It can be old or new but it will be judged on the merits listed below. I will pick the winner, as I will be using it to draw the graphic for the back of the Falln’Tide 5 shirt. The winner will receive a Free registration to the FnT tournament and be forever immortalized on the back of the tournament shirt.

Photos will be judged on:
• Ample lighting (harsh backlighting will hide too much detail)
• Dynamic angle & action (3/4 view of kayak in perspective is a plus rather than perfectly perpendicular view or straight on generic views, excited facial expression, over exaggerated posed arms fighting fish holding rod a plus. This is necessary for instant recognition in the action taking place)
• High or Low vantage points (were you can see extra details like the cockpit of the kayak, waves, fighting fish, perspective a plus, facial expression / see FnT2 shirt for a higher perspective example / FnT3 for a photo taken underneath)
• Whole kayak must be shown (but from far off not a good idea)
• Hight resolution / In FOCUS!!!!
• Angler must be fighting a fish or casting

POST SUBMISSIONS HERE: CONTEST RUNS TILL THE END OF AUGUST!

That's all I got of people fighting fish or casting. I guess I need to make a better effort to get that kind of shot.

I think my favorite so far would have to be Kurt_Loup in his wooden canoe battling one on a fly rod.

Wact, that's a nice shot. I think the girls can have a good chance of winning this one. I've got alot of pics Julie on various fishing trips, too. This is one of my favorites. Her first red on a baitcaster. We're going to have work on getting some action shots of the ladies battling fish. We might try to get out Sunday. Any good photographers heading down to Mag. Sunday?

Took it today and the size of the red was 28 1/2, you can see the chartreuse jig in its mouth, the cork,
anyway... not to bad in my opinion.

Great that Buddhaman can take pictures because he sure hasn't caught many fish lately. All outcasts may have to bring a couple cans of Tuna Fish so we will have something to eat..... just saying.....

Thanks Choup! I had to keep his face out of the photo ... they don't call him Ugly Red for nothing! All of the photos that were submitted were terrific. Gairi's right. I haven't caught much lately. But I want y'all to keep something in mind. When I first started posting, I was catching a fair portion of our scaley friends. Since I've been hanging out with Gairi ... don't know ---- gris gris, virus, bad karma, BO???? Just saying....
Thanks again!
