Let me get crazy here.. And please forgive me if this just seem out of the realm of possibility.. But why not just have a voting poll.. Run it for a month before the tourney that way everyone has enough time to vote...

Walleye,Perch, Pike, Pickerel,Crappie, Lakers,Bluegills are automatically in.. Unless we have an overwhelming objection...

Species voted for:
Tiger Muskie
Brookies
Rainbows
Browns
LLSalmon
Splake
Burbot
White perch/bass whatever they are called
RockBass
LGM Bass
SmM Bass

Top 5 in votes gets a NY bragin tourney category spot

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? :)

I have a muskie water near me and I could care less about them (although i do target them after the morning walleye bite) however i mainly target panfish for the freezer... and i love catching 14" perch all day.... just speaking for some people who don't check the thread anymore....

I just think pike should be one separate category and muskie including tigers should be a different category like the ice shanty tourny had

A possibility, but the problem with a few of these other species are they look very similar and hard to tell them apart at times.
Splake - brookies
Rainbows - steelheads - LL salmon

But, i'm cool with adding a few of these next year if you guys really think it will bring a few more entries, but I'm tell you that we'll see the same dozen people posting. But, maybe if we have a warmer ice season, we might see more entries too. this past season was junk for C&R photo entires.

I could see the ID being an issue for a couple by picture, but not many. This winter was most definitely brutal for keeping fish out of the water for any period of time. We are due for a break next year. I can only assume adding species to the list would make people take more interest. If it is in fact the same old 12 guys, what do you have to lose? I know if I was targeting a certain species for most of the season, and it wasn't one on the board, I most likely wouldn't participate. I understand that the more species there are on the board, the more work that makes for you ( which the few of us participating definitely appreciate by the way ). But, something has to change in order to draw more people.

Splake and brookies Maybe, I know some can be a little hard to tell the difference

Bows and Steelies  albeit the same fish basically, Id just have a hard time believing someone would go through the trouble of bringing a steelhead all the way to a frozen lake to fool us all to win a braging rights tourney..

Confusing LLs for bows or steelies ? they look absolutely nothing alike, maybe with browns, I know there's been some debates on here distinguishing those 2.. As far as that i would think LLs would win the vote anyway..

I also think that if the sign up date deadline was pushed back just a mere 10 days it would create more participation (just for the braggin tourney)
Lotta folks arent even on the ice until a week or so into the new year and then start coming on the site.. I dont know this as fact, someone would have to look at the numbers.. Just seems to me like things get flowing here once the ice comes, and for a good number of people thats not until after the sign up deadline..

the problem with starting early is the tourney card.
Yes I know that we could go without a tourney card but to insure a current catch, we'll need a tourney card.
No since in having a NYbragg'n card only.

I think maybe i conveyed what i meant wrong. Push the date deadline to get into the NY bragin tourney further into january , for example, all entrants must be signed up for braggin tourney by Jan 10, 2016.. Maybe i had a brain fart, there is no sign up for the NY braggin tourney or is there ?

Yah and there are a good amount of people myself included who could fish on ice by december 1st easily every year, not trying to get the early 1st ice guys, more so the late ice guys..

no dead line to sign up for NY bragg'n tourney.
Only have to be a member located in NY and have NY somewhere in your profile, either NY badge in signature or have NY in your location profile.

Steelhead can be caught ice fishing in any of the bays or estuaries of any creek along the big pond.  There would be no need to take them to another lake.

people do fish the bays of the great lakes on the ice, so it's ice fishing and a rainbow/steelhead...
You know someone will do it.
Someone is going to catch a spawning LL and think it's a brown or the other way around, you know it's going to happen.
Someone is going to catch a splake and think is't a brookie, or someone is going to catch a brookie on a body of water that is out of season, you know it's going to happen.

All this maybe junk is why we don't normally add these species, but for next year, we will add a few of the trout species to see how it will play out.

If you're that serious, start talking to some other guys who would be interested, and see what has to be done.

I can imagine. Heart pumping and if you were working with a 6" hole, I'm sure you were wondering if it would fit, lol. Because I know the 17.5"er I pulled out of a 6" hole last year was jaw dropper too.  :afro:

Don't you freet, I can figure it all out when I measure up the fish. I'd rather have it 2" in on the tape measure instead of 1/2" not in the picture frame.
Thanks for the help backwoodsboy.  :afro:
