The 2009 CAG Spring Big 4 - May 1-31

Recommended Posts

Update-

Our leader board and corresponding database have been upgraded to include a junior tab. This means we can have a separate Junior division!

We also now have location added, so we can add peg numbers or venues during the CAGI. :rolleyes:

See what it looks like on the atc leaderboard:

Would anyone be so kind as to donate some prizes to the kids? I think it would be fine if the existing donors were to reorganize their give aways to spread further :yourock:

Very cool!

so im sure when e-mail is sent out it will be in there on how to up load photos info. and also now the location!

thanks for your hard work in getting this set up!

Cheers,

Joel.

I believe its a fine idea, but the same names as was previously mentioned most likely will win. A lot of CAG members aren't near, or in this day and time can afford the money to travel to waters that might contain the size fish needed to win. Some members seem to be fantastic anglers while others can never experience such captures as those lucky enought to have the time, funds, or waters within reach to bank fish the size needed to compete. I don't want to sound like "sour grapes" I believe a lot of CAG memebers won't even bother knowing they have a very little chance as the few who have regular or multible huge fish catchs, sometimes in just a day session, are hard to compete with. I'm not against yearly contests but I believe they should be a bit more of a equal chance for all

Spot on with this, myself i dont really do the compettive thing often so i'm not so worried, but it kinda does exclude a lot of people that may like to enter things, hey but its a nice idea :rolleyes:

Listen, it's the first one. In the future, we can maybe have regionals etc. It's just supposed to be like a more participatory version of the big fish award.

I'll tell you one thing, I am going to try to win it, and I don't live in troy or austin... and we have 20 competitors, I think that's cool. This can also be a bit of a spectator event being a whole month long :rolleyes:

How about a no sand bagging rule so it's more fun for the spectators?

"Fish must be submitted within on week of catch date."

I agree. If perfection is required at the first time of asking then nothing new will ever happen. Give it a try and let it grow. :o

I entered but have absolutely no expectation of winning. I see it as no more than a reminder to get my **** together to go out and fish in May and an opportunity to donate 10 bucks to the group.

Frankly, if by some miracle I caught three forties and a fifty next month I'd probably keep schtumm about it anyway. :rolleyes:

don't worry about it. it's a non mandatory field in the form. I'm going to have it taken out.
