    Who is the judge? Is there a moderator that should be assigned that isn't involved with one of the teams (sleeping with, best buddies, broke back buddies, on the team, etc)?

    So any 5lb + carp I catch, I get 19 points? That's like taking candy from a little girl. I don't need a 'handicap' if I decide to play :cool:

    How do you figure? Regardless of how many points someone gets during their 5 day/6 night fishing trip in Xmas versus 3 months of fishing at home, it's a FANTASY FISHING TEAM. You can pick whoever you want for your team and if you pick yourself, YOUR FISH ONLY COUNT FOR HALF POINTS.

    I will have to think about my team.
    I would suggest length cut-offs as opposed to the 5 pound mark as that would be very difficult to judge and measuring by length would recognise the quality of a fish like a steelhead as opposed to just giving the extra 10 points for being over 5 pounds which 99-100% of the entrants would be. Have a base line and then a point for every inch over that mark.

    Yard, this is a sick idea!

    I'm gonna go with a Little League team. My picks are:

    1) my man CoastalCut! That boy gets out and fishes like the big boys do. Plus, he throws up more pics than Brett Farve.
    2) Hogwrangler is gonna have a good season. I think he can paint realistic enough to pass off his work as the real thing. Plus, the boy's got love in his heart.
    3) Clint F is also gonna have a good year with his new boat.
    4) Flytyerboy95thousand is definitely going to make me proud. Plus, he's frickin' adorable!
    5) This is kinda' like picking Randy Moss, but. . . . He's ready to make a comeback; he's got a lot to prove; and if he's let back on the board, I'm sure he might finally post those pictures of New York's 30 pound cookiecutter-steel.

    If I can't successfully lobby for Sick's reinstatement to the League, then I have a spot open on my team, any takers?

    No matter what I always seem to get my name drug through the mud. Hey, you left grayling off your list.

    Jeff, I don't catch smolts anymore. I'm in Montana where there aren't any. Just Cutts anymore with a big rainbow thrown in for good measure.

    This is the greatest F-ing idea I've heard in a long time.

    Commentary on my life? Maturity? Mentality? ... Possibly.

    I thought about trying to win, and just picking all the ringers who live in Montana and/or post a ton of photos, like Zen, Ritari, Soltau, etc., but then I'd have to root for those guys, and shit -- they already catch too many fish.

    Then I thought about an all-underdog squad, captained by OMJ (dressed as he was in the attached photo)... but I probably don't have deep enough knowledge to pick the five best underdogs.

    So it finally hit me... the obvious choice... the all MAINE squad:

    1. Myself (jeez, I'd be a handicap already, but only getting HALF points?)
    2. "Maine" Wayne Jordan
    3. Chris Puma (even though I hear he's actually a Masshole and never fishes anymore)
    EDIT: 4. Oh damn! I almost forgot Dave Hartman is from Maine AND has the Montana Advantage!

    ... ummm... OK, I need two more. Anyone else ever lived in Maine? Ever visited? I'm willing to negotiate. EDIT: Just one more now!
