February 2018 Contest
« on: February 01, 2018, 01:10:57 AM »
Last month I stopped offering the $50 gift certificate as a prize.  I decided it was time to reward our tiers who have provided prizes for the last year at their own expense.

I am going to split the $50 prize money between Dutch, Pepop and Slabbed Silly to help pay for the costs of creating the jigs they have been so generously donating and to pay for the postage to sent these jigs to the winners.  They have been paying these costs themselves to help support this board.  All say they do not want to be repaid but I think it is only fair that they recoup their costs in making these jigs available to us.

We will have five winners in January.  Each will receive a dozen handtied jigs from one of these tiers.  Random drawings will determine winners and who receives jigs from which tier.

I hope everybody enjoys the new contest.  This jigs make outstanding prizes for crappie fisherman.  Or I guess I should say crappie fisherperson since my wife loves to fish for crappie even more than I do.

I am open to suggestions about the contest.

Of coarse, the "Rest of the story" is my boat is in the shop for scheduled service.   

Which means I'm beached regardless of the wind.

Looking forward to Tuesday, unless they change the forecast.   It's suppose to be 70+ so I can take the wife to the slip.   I won't take her out in anything much cooler than that.

I went today... found the fish suspended..... spidered all day and only got 2 keepers of 11 inches.  Lots of fish on the graph but they all had lockjaw.
I woke up this morning.  At my age, that is a GOOD thing!
