Well, thanks and a big thanks to all that entered a fish or tow or three.

Now, it seems as if there wan't that many guys this year???  Is we get some more guys in for next year maybe we'll continue, but as of now, it seems that not very many NY ice fishermen are into the Bragg'n tourney??

THOUGHTS ???

Think it was the size of the fish entered in the early stages, the walleye and crappie were pretty much unbeatable from the get go, perch was up there also.. And those are really some of the most sought after fish.. As fishny said. Next year will be different.. I've talked to a lot of people out on the ice etc etc, that didn't really know about it...

People that would have placed with fish I witnessed caught. And then you have those select few ( me ) that just plain old forget about the online tourney while you're in the moment trying to get a big fish released healthy. Doh

I totally get that right there. It was down right cold through out Feb. and lets talk about the snow, geezzz.
Congrats on C&R'ing, I too C&R about 99.9% of the time. That is why it's nice to have a shanty near by to get into while getting photos ready.  ;D
That and yes, there were some real nice fish posted up right at the begining  ;) , but we still like to see some of y'alls catches.

Now how about changing things up a little bit for next year and chance up some of the catagories ?
Or just stay with the popular 7 that we have ?

I would think theres enough, Raquette,Forked, Blue MT lakes are all open year round and hold Brookies and those lakes are all practically next door to each other.. Id imagine theres more if you look for them..

Granted not like there is tons of guys pursuing them, but im sure it would bring out some would be otherwise lurkers

Plus I know of one more lake that brookies will be available next year. I'm just thinking of things that will entice more anglers to participate in the NY online tourney next year.

This looks good but I would make Pike and Muskies including tiger a separate category and do a trout category instead of browns/rainbows and a separate for brookies. There just are not that many people who target brookies through the ice imo

You could just have a trout category, but would need to leave brookies out of it IMO.
As far as pike/ muskies, why have a separate category for the two? Pike and tigers grow very similar in length. If it was a contest determined by weight, no they would not be able to compete with each other.

Because someone down the line will catch a big tiger and it will get beat by a pike and they will complain that tiger muskies and pike shouldn't be in the same category because they are different types of fish.... The IceShanty tourney used to have muskie and tigers in the same category since they are both muskies and a separate category for pike but have since got rid of the category for muskies since there were little to no entries year in and year out. Also in NY the lakes that do have tigers in them are no where near how big pike can get in the NY waters. Also, tigers are a lot harder to catch than pike of the same size but about the same as a muskie

Idk where you fish for tigers but in the NYS waters I fish, they most certainly do get just as big as NYS pike. And I know very well the hours devoted to catching them.
After all, this is just for bragging rights. Who cares, just fish it. If a species I devote most of my time towards isnt part of it, why participate. We are looking for more participants aren't we?

It would be no different than someone catching a bigger pike! You said it yourself, how often would someone actually enter one? There are 50" pike in NYS, and there are 50" tigers in NYS. Is it because you have no tiger waters near you that you don't like this? You also said that pike get much bigger in NYS than tigers, so what is there to worry about? :)

all valid points.
Just like combining the trout, I personally don't think it's a good idea to do so, it makes for added complaining.
It's hard to make people happy if you combine any of the species together, there is arguements from all angles.

Can you take a vote? The chances of catching a 40"+ tiger is far less than a pike. And, as we can all see, not a pike over 40" was entered this season. So why not try to open up the door a little bit to get more people participating? The only people who will have a problem will be those who don't have tiger water near by or can't take the 100's of hours involved targeting them. If there was a tiger only category, I can count on one hand of how many people are out there pursuing them in NY.
