Problem being that you can probably come up with so many different species that everyone wins atleast one... who wants that?

There is only one species, BASS!

Guys everyone should have a time stamp on their digital camera. Set the time and date correctly and the date will be on the picture. It's not that complicated. Last year we had people making name tags and all kinds of crazy ass things. I don't think that's really necessary.

As goherd said, your camera will have a date stamp on it, that will do, if you can get picture with a weight on it great of not, weigh the fish take its photo and put him back in the water. Post the pic, if it has a date great, if it has a weight great to, if it has neither fine, its about the fishing not winning a contest where there is no prize involved, if people are gonna cheat they are gonna cheat.

This rule has been thrown around fro a while with mixed results, pic with fish is all we need

I take offense at that sir "Crazy ass things" ..since I was the one using that..My mechanism on my camera is broken.
I was simply following the rules..[8D]..to post screen name and date.IF the fisherman can not be in the picture.

Teh reason for the tag was that some fishermen fish alone..and can't get their picture with the fish..

1. Will a tag be appropriate{with screen name} this year ifthe fisherman is alone??

okay, Rule number 5 will be as follows

A picture of the fish, with or without person in it, weight to be posted with the fish and dated.

How does that sound???

Is there gonna benorth and south divisions. Or are us northerners supposed to catch 8-10 pound bass like you southern guys have. Doesn't really seem fair.
I have to agree with goherd1111, on this one it would be real hard trying to catch an 8 pound smallmouth up this way...

Sorry I didn't mean to offend anyone, just thought it was kind of silly.

I fish alone 99.9% of the time. Camera's also have a picture timer for that very reason. That is how I took all of the pictures of me and my fish.

If I lived in Alabama, Florida, etc.I would also like the one/biggest fish rule.
