MT's 2010 Monster bluegill on ice derby!
Who thinks they can catch a huge Gill through the ice? Enter it in the MT's 2010 monster bluegill on ice derby!
It starts this weekend, and goes til the ice is gone! Why didn't I start this at the beginning of the ice season? because I just thought of it now!
Just catch a monster bluegill, and if you think it could be the big one, take a pic, post it on this thread, or email it to me and I will post it on the leaderboard on my blog here: http://mtbucket.blogspot.com/2010/01...ice-derby.html
I am going by length, not weight, since most don't have the best scale for getting an accurate number.
Take it on a board so it is touching the "0" side, and whatever the tail touches, that is your length! Here is an example:
Entry is free and open to anyone that is fishing through a hole in the ice.
No dead beat up or frozen fish will count, take a pic right when you catch it, that is when they look best!
Here is the prize, not a new truck or anything like that, but not bad for a free contest, a framed "2D lifesize replica" of your winning catch. Here is a one I made last fall:

Thanks for adding Lance without the name and date.
Like I had said there were 9 eye witnesses over the weekend and you can tell from the pic where we were at plus you saw the post of the trip.

Not sure you count too well..LOLI'll be chasing that 11 all winter till the tullies start late Feb early March.
I know there's bigger ones to search for too.
I'll be heading back in there and I'll be ready with my name on a placard with the correct date.
Hitting her this weekend....who knows maybe we can just set that bar high enough everyone will wanna throw in the towel and declare CK the winner!
there are some great gills to chase....just gotta get that biggun to bite.

Is big fish still a tie at 9 7/8? Just wondering when I should post the pic of foot long gill I got..

An 11 incher got caught this weekend but if Hog Eyes has a 12 then I'll remain mute.....maybe I should post it to push his hand...what ya got Hog Eyes?
Truely if you have a 12 then I'm getting on my knees to bow.....I'm not worthy!
