    I'm looking for some dark horses. as in people who dont take pictures of fish. do we get any points if we tell you about the fish we catch? always look out for the quiet guys right? i dont think i have taken a picture of a fish in about two years except for the occasional steelhead. let me know and maybe i might put a "team" together

    Sorry Mike, no trades after the 05/05 deadline. Your final list must be completed before then.

    Yes. Some places it is not legal to target sturgeon with artificials. But a bycatch will be counted because it's pretty freakin cool.

    The same a 5lb Bow 7 points.

    This is an issue I was thinking about. Most of this is riding on the honor system, so photos with just the fish solo, in your hand in the water or across the legs in a float tube will have to count for half points.

    Edit will be made to the rules.

    This is a phenomenal idea. I have noticed a lot of the same people are being picked several times. This is an open call to anyone that wants to form a team that hasn't been selected yet. I am graduating from WSU in May and I don't want to start my career yet so I plan on hittin the summer hard. Also got a 2 1/2 week visit in Bozeman set up in July. Let me know if you want to join and are interested on taking a chance at beating some of the superior teams. All Cougs are welcome!!

    I think you're missing the concept of a "fantasy" team. You don't ask permission or cooperatively form a team, you just pick who you want and run with it.

    I'm going to have to hire someone to follow me around and take pictures. :D

    If I take pics myself, which I seldom do, and I'm not in the pic, which is the problem with fishing alone, is that valid?

    My team:

    -Me of course
    -Fullerfly
    -Fishtolive..... start taking some pics dude! We'll crush if you were to document your fishing.

    Bring the pain. Oh yeah and why the hell would you pick yourself? You only get half the points. I guess you have to post twice the pics :thumb:

    Clint and SAK - sounds like you like an underdog team for a challenge. But seriously, I'm not a competitor so I'd recommend taking me off your team. See Kevin's post about being married, having kids, and a demanding job, owning a home with a big yard, etc... Besides, this time period is one of my slowest fishing wise. I start getting serious around Aug through Feb. And also, I fish alone most of the time, and I'm not going to risk the fish just to get my ugly mug in a shot - so most of my pics would be 1/2 points. I'm sure I'll throw a few pics up like normal, but nothing like these other guys will produce...
