2011 BYOB Labor Day Fishing Tournament! Winner is Fender66!!

Post by BYOB Fishing »

The item that must be included in your photo is a quarter! Good luck!


I was just having dinner, thinking that we should have a Labor Day online fishing tournament!! I'll put up the prize, this wonderful custom hand painted baby bass stick bait!!

I shamelessly stole Jim's rules from the last online tournament we did, because I think he's done a great job with them...

Read this whole thread please!

Dates: This Tournament starts Saturday September 3, 2011 and ends Monday September 5, 2011 at Midnight of your time zone. That gives you 3 days to catch some fish. You can join in any time this weekend.

Species: Largemouth, Smallmouth Bass, and Spotted Bass
Bait used: ANYTHING GOES (no snagging) Special secret prize if it's caught on a Build Your Own Baits Crank!

Rules: A secret item must be included with a picture of your fish, and that item will be announced Friday night September 2nd, 2011 around 9PM CST. This is mandatory.

Biggest Bass will win this Tournament, and all pictures must be submitted here. One Entry per contestant. The photo must be of the fish next to a ruler, tape measure, bunk board, something to show it's length--and include the secret item.

You have up until Monday September 5th, 2011 at Midnight of your time zone to submit your biggest fish.

I will choose the winner and If I can't decide who's fish is the biggest, I will ask Jim to help me decide.

Prizes: The winner gets the highly sought after Build Your Own Baits Custom Lure!

If you have any questions ask away or PM me.

Let's keep this thread tournament related.

The next time won't be the first time I've made the same mistake twice.
