Good post. Thanks for the offer. I don't need anything at the moment. Making plans for a fall fish-in, but the guys who usually attend come for the fellowship and fun, and not for prizes or medals. I still have a decent supply of CAG brochures and stickers, so I'm probably good for this year.
Not much going on right now. It's too HOT here in GA to do much fishing (we've had a stretch of more than a month with temps at least 90, except for just 1 or 2 days). Most of us won't be fishing for more than a few short sessions until fall.
Two years ago I ran a year long contest and awarded medals (1st, 2nd, 3rd place) for the "Outstanding Carp" caught in the state. I had ZERO entries from CAG members and only a few from other anglers. As I said, most of the guys don't fish for awards. Unless they're pay lakers fishing for cash, they're just fishing for the enjoyment of it. I thought about trying it again, but based on that response, it might not be worth it. Maybe next year???
Anyway, I don't think I need anything this year. I'll let you know later if I do for next year. Meanwhile, good luck and "tight lines".
