Dave - We were the Newbies in the league, just getting to fish against you was an honor:lol: - besides, we misread the rules and were only running two rods all year:D - hopefully with 9 rods we will be able to kick it up a notch!

Shane' date='

I was ridding the down rigger down 90' and catching them with my bare hands. You have no excuses.

Hope to see some new faces this year![/quote']

Thats not fair. They prolly just keeled over when they saw your ugly mug and were easy to catch. :eek:

Keep up the smack talk boys, We really want to grow the league this year to an average of 20 boats. so get the word out.

I really enjoy being able to have the fun poking with each other during this event. A win in league is not going to make you rich, it may pay for your gas. but it is what we can learn from each other at the end of the event by sharing information.

the way I look at it, I'm going to fish, why not get a chance to hang out with a few people at the end that share a common interest.

Right on Jon. Looking forward to this season. Thanks for managing it. Had a great time fishing w/ Motion Show last year on a few events. Hope to have my boat in a few of this years events. Gotta help Shane knock Dave off the top of that list.;)

Terry,

We are going to do a trophy and maybe a prize pack depending on the sponsors.

Our plan is to take each boats top 3 for point totals.

We don't plan to take any extra moneys for this, again it's just for fun and bragin' rights.
