New York ONLY competition CHAT
« on: Nov 01, 2012, 10:46 AM »
Would anyone want to do a NY state wide iceshanty year long tournament? Biggest fish in several species. Make it an annual thing. We could have "NYS Iceshanty Pike Champion 2012-2013" and so on... For all different fish? Just thought this would be cool.

Best fish pic for each/all species? It might be hard to do by weight....

If you'd guys like it, I could set it up and run it if you'd like.
I would have to get with admin to get some fancy editting buttons and a child board like Maine.

What ya think for catagories?    Maine has a ton of them, I think we need to have less, lol.

Northern Pike
Walleye
Lg/Sm Bass
Yellow Perch
Crappie
BlueGill/Pumpkinseed
Lake Trout

How about lucky 7 catagories

thoughts?

and make up some 1st, 2nd, 3rd place trophy tags for your signature.

I see 3 Maine mods working on their tourney..I think we should also have at least 3 helping with the tourney. More eyes and with 3 people mod'ing the tourney were will always be a 2 - 1 vote on decisions, like a tourney committee.

Now back to species

Pike
Pickerel
Musky ? or mix with pike
Walleye
Yellow Perch
Crappie
Bluegill
Pumpkinseed ? or mix with bluegill
Largemouth bass ?
Smallmouth bass ? or mix them together and let the biggest win
Lake trout
LL Salmon ?
Splake ?
Brookie ?
Brown trout ?
Rainbow trout ?


I think that less is better and easier to keep track of.
I also so that they have best photo categories too, Shanty, Flag, Sunset/rise, etc. what are ya'lls thoughts?

i dont recommend a musky category, i dont like encouraging people to target them through the ice plus there arnt muskies for a lot of people to have access too. Just saying!

I think keep it simple, I like the first list of fish options, especially for the first year.

I too like the "Lucky 7" categories. I could also be a mod, I'll be on here most the time, most days from now through March (except while fishing).  @)

OK...  I got the "go" with this....   Northernnyice and Fish-N-Adventures will be in charge...  So get together....Finders Keepers can be involved also...   I will be keeping my eye on this to make sure it is held to the rules....  This will be for bragging rights only..  No prizes allowed...    Not necessary to get a list of entries (unless you want) but make a printable NY only tourney card..    You guys wanted it, so get the ball rolling...   Good luck...

Stick with the smaller list but maybe add Brooke Trout...

I work on a computer so if any help is needed I will be around.  This is going to be fun.   I would stick with a small species list.  Make it simple and fun.

I like it. 

Just to be clear
Yellow Perch only right?  Not those nasty White perch, I hate it when they mix the two.

I agree, keep the Muskie out of it.  I'd win anyway  ;D

We should also have a ISNY get together somewhere in the middle of NY (kids, food, drink, fsh of course, meet and greet)

The short list would be good for the first year. Lucky 7 sounds good too.

Okay so the lucky 7, plus brookies. That is agreed upon. I'm waiting to hear back from Fish-n-adventures about a set of rules. Then we will start to design a Tourny card!

I would drop the bass category since in NY you are not supposed to target bass since they are out of season so that would limit people purposely targeting them and put brook trout in their place....

P.S. not to boost my ego or anything but love seeing the Ny banner I made under a lot of peoples posts!

You can CR bass in a bunch of waters now in New York all year long.

Yes you can but you are supposed to use artificial lures and 99% of the time if you are using tip-ups you're not using artificial lures... just giving my .02 don't want to see someone get a ticket from the DEC officers who don't care what the reason is they will write the ticket anyway

Now for the ISNY only tourney card, thoughts ?

I think it should be simple with type only, not any pictures because of person printers being color or black/white.

Put the IS logo and an outline of NY state with something like, " 1st annual I.S.N.Y. Tournament " on it.

OR, just use the current 2013 IS tourney card, which will be the easiest. This way you won't need to have both cards on you if you are in the IS tourney.

what do ya'll think about these catagories:

NY Lucky 7

Northern Pike
Walleye
Crappie
Yellow Perch
Bluegill/Pumpkinseed
Lake Trout
Brook Trout


Only thing else to think about, maybe changing walleye for pickerel, only because, pickerel are everywhere and I don't think most NY'ers care about backgrounds on pickerel waters but walleye waters and backgrounds are of a different thing.  ??

Or swap brook trout for pickerel ??
