     The BIG FISH CONTEST will again be held to recognize those Association members or their families who catch the biggest* fish in each of nine categories  between Fishing Opener and the end of Labor Day weekend. Each year starts with a clean slate, so you don’t need to exceed previous year’s catch or the record catches in order to enter.

     Categories: Musky, Northern, Walleye, Large Mouth Bass, Small Mouth Bass, Rock Bass, Perch, Crappie, and Blue Gill.

     Winners will be announced in the Newsletter and Website after September 15, and will be presented with a special recognition plaque at the June General Meeting.  

                                              Requirements

                   Be a current DLA member in good standing.

                   Fish must be caught with hook and line.

                    Measure and weigh your fish using Deliar or similar device.

                     Take digital or film picture if possible.

                   Keep or release the fish (personal preference).

                   You MUST report your catch to Contest Central:

           pandg.ritz@comcast.net, 327-4826, or 33422 N Portage Trail, GR

 

     Be sure to check the DLA Website for the latest results, which will be updated on the 1st and 15th  of June, July, August, and September.

 

* “biggest” will be determined by length and weight, but where two fish are similar in length, the heaviest will be the winner, even if shorter in length.

Angler Rich Anderson holds up the contest's biggest Muskie for 2011.  The numbers are: 54 inches in length, 45 lbs in weight. It was released.

Can you top this in 2014?  (He plans to do so!)
