    I think rockfish should depend on the species of rockfish... if you catch a blackie..it should definitely be worth less than a tiger rockfish, yellow eye or other ones that are not as regularly caught.

    I'm gone for my Spring fishing trip in the Florida Back Country and Bahamas and miss the Fantasy Fishing thread entirely until now.

    Wadin'Boot, you bet on the wrong horse; like the man said, all a question of timing. I likely had at least one day on the flats that might rival ibn's, and attach a pic from a day doing some outrageous blue water fishing: 30lb grouper, Wahoo, and 6 Mahi Mahi, but all prior to 5/1/08.

    But Boot says I gotta do my part though, so this is it: all teams that included Yard in their line-up are disqualified as he has a conflict of interest seeing how he is the founding father of this league and that he's the self appointed judge. Besides, everybody knows how easy Yard is and you just can't trust a judge that won't stay bought properly after good money has been tendered.

    Saltdog, My team hasn't chalked up one friggin 'point. Here's some inspiration for you chumps to get out there and perform:


    From the great comedic spirits:

    Men of action:

    and some lesser dieties of stupid hair rock:

    I was watching the Poison video wondering, "how could this complex story end?" man what a twist, gotta hand it to them, didn't see it, nope, didn't see it...and that's what I'm hoping the fantasy flyfishing comp ends up, my dark horse picks taking it all home...To motivate yousall I'll give one fishing glove similar to that worn by Bret Michaels, Poison's lead vocalist, in the above video to each of my team members if they take the prize...as they say in Spinal tap....smell the glove

    this is a great idea, i wish i would have noticed it sooner, not sure how i missed it. I think this should be a yearly things, and perhaps there should eb some sort of draft to prevent 40 teams that consist of Matney, Jergens, Zen, Doughty, etc.

    The fifth finger has always been instrumentral (so she says)......you can have four of the same fingers but the fifth (thumb) must be unique to each (individual playing) ...... it is a simple competition to follow.

    Obviously the guy chosen to tag along with these four pristine flyfishers could very well be the deciding factor in your victory or defeat ......since half of you decided to select yourself I guess the weight is on you. :)

    Yuhina, we are no longer shamed, thank you. I had a Walmart-like premonition last night, panfish were the golden ticket. Keep it quiet or Hartman's clone army of pubescent street urchins will catch on...and what with school ending, they don't have anything to do but hit the waters or sniff glue. Lets hope they choose the latter!
