March 2012 Cag Online Contest

Recommended Posts

This month’s new contest will be for “The Best Swim Picture”.

This is a purely a subjective contest, not necessarily based on it being the best producing swim but the best picture of a swim. This is an exciting topic as we get to see many of your favorite swims from around the country and world!

For the next three weeks members can submit pictures with a short description of their “Best Swim Picture”. Multiple pictures are welcome. The picture would ideally have some fishing gear in it, but not required.

Entries will be accepted till March 28th 11AM. Voting will begin March 28th and end on Sunday April 1st at midnight CST, top three finishers, decided by member’s votes, will each get a CAG iron on patch, a CAG fish tape measure, and a CAG mouse pad. First place finisher will also receive an available CAG shirt of their choice!

As a bonus, good pictures can also make a cool computer desk top or may be used in this year’s CAG publication.

Let the games begin!!!

Do these pics have to be from this month or anytime? Just making sure

Good question Chris!

Pictures can be from any month.

As it is, we are still in winter which may make it difficult to get great pictures!

I guess I will get it going. Here is a pic of Peg#8 at the Lake Fork tourney this past weekend. We had a lot of snags but it was a truly remarkable lake.

Dan--In view of all the wonderful photos that have been submitted, in retrospect, the contest may have been a bit more manageable and the participants more active (rather than sifting through past photos) had you limited the contest to photos taken only in March 2012, had you limited the contest to photos that contain carp gear, carp anglers, or actual fish, and had you limited the contest to a finite number of photos per angler. However second guessing is easy, so I must say that I appreciate the idea and the opportunity. Here are photos of a few of my winter swims. More swims by season coming later.--Frank

Hind sight is...how true. :lol:This contest will probably generate more pics than the beautiful carp contest!

At first it's like "wow, so many pictures" and then it's like "man, are these some beeeeautiful pictures"!

No problem... just come back and vote beginning on the 27th!! :Banana:

Many great photos have been submitted but only by just a few of you.

FYI, 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes go to three different contestants. :)

Keep those pics coming!
