Go to Wallyworld and get a disposable camera. When you get them developed, get them on a disk not as pictures. Then, load them onto your computer.


Hey Jim, how come spots don't count? In Allatoona, we mostly have spots, with just a few largies here and there.

The issue I see is, I may never be able to participate in these tourneys, as dad doesn't always let me out on holidays, as it is too dangerous with all the drunka$$ed s**theads driving there 40 foot Donzis at 400 bazillion mph, thinking that others will just get out of his way. On the 4th, there was a boat collision here where one boat sank, and they still haven't found it, or its occupants. Holidays seem to give people excuses to drink WAY more than they should. I don't have a problem with alcohol. But holidays are just too dangerous.

Go ahead and sign me up, as it wont cost you anything, as you ain't sending baits out. I just *may* find a way to get out on a less dangerous lake. (not likely)

Thanks, bassboy1

I was not familiar with Spotted Bass, But after doing some research, I decided that they should be included in the Tournament.

The winner from the last tournament was caught from shore. So don't worry/think you need to be on a boat. Try super early in the morning or closer to night when all the yahoos are off the water.
Alright, you win on the holiday thing. :D
I am glad you now allow spots in the tourneys. The were introduced in Allatoona a while back, and have taken over the largemouth it seems. There are still big mouths in this lake, but they are few and far between. According to your link, it says average spots are less than a pound. A common one here is 1 to 2 1/2 pounds, with a guide pulling up a 6 pounder last week. Wow.
He has a picture on a local Allatoona board of it. Here is a link to that thread.

That Spot is a pig. Honestly if you never mentioned it, I would of assumed it was a largemouth. LOL!

To prevent any "pre-fishing" Jimmy (aka Mr. T, aka Grand Master Jim, aka Baitmeister) will give us an item that must be included in the photo - last contest (look it up) it was a coin. Who knows what he might choose this time, a balloon, a small cat, possibly an autographed photo of the DamnPeople Boat.

Redbug will be allowed to use a live skunk in his photo - oh wait, that woudl be his catch :shock:
