When I started to try to get some prizes for this derby, It was on my own and no one knew anything about it so I want to know from you guys how to hand them out..

I thought we could have one prize for Smallest legal Sturgeon,, one prize for Big Striper caught durring the derby, stuff like this..

Tell me what you you guys think and throw out some suggestions,

8)Sunracer just let me know what time you are giving out your prizes so schedules dont overlap. Thanks. 8)

Lets just do it at the end of the weigh in or whatever time your handing out stuff,, we'll talk about it before the derby,, check your PM

That's a great idea....I'm thinking the Penn reel for the biggest Bullhead.....since I am the Bullhead Master ;D

D back those are the suggestions I'm looking for keep em coming guys..

I like the idea of the largest striper prize, thats all I seem to catch.

How bout one for most bait bought with no fish? That should put me in good shape to win sumthin!

09-08-2005, 03:50 PM
MR_T for what you'll probley spend on bait you can buy yourself a new reel!!!! :o

09-08-2005, 04:20 PM
You could just drop off one of the reels at my house ::) ::)

I say you raffle um off ;)

09-08-2005, 05:21 PM
you all have great idears. I like the one about the raffle also. That way if someone doesn't catch a fish, they still have a chance to win shump'm. Know what um shay'n? haha. The raffle tickets could be sold for 4 dollars or something.

09-08-2005, 05:25 PM
I think T & I may be in compitition for the most bait no fish thing ;)Unless hopefully Fisherman Chris can get me my 1st Stury ;DLOL

You guys tell me,, if we raffel how bout sending that money to the relief fund for N.O?? come on guys tell me what to do.. I thought buy giving them away as prizes we would have more folks show up at the weigh in. you know the guy with a 48" skinny Sturgeon or the guy with the big Striper who knows he's not going to win the derby..

How cool would it be to send a fair amount of money to help folks who are in desperate need,, tell me what you think

09-08-2005, 07:07 PM
Hey tom, that's using your noggin. I think that is a good idea. There are many people in this country that think the same way. N.O. needs it.

09-08-2005, 07:28 PM
If you guys didn't read the other post I recieved the Mitchell Riptide today and Wow what a beast,, Whales, Sharks, Oversized Sturgeon what do ya want to fish for..

The Penns are on there way and I should have them in my paws any day now!!

09-08-2005, 07:29 PM
i would say if you have multiple prizes you can award what you think for biggest/smallest fish etc ...and raffle off what you choose .. i like the sending money for aid idea ....great idea ...cuz while we are worrying about what to do with prizes they are worried about how they are going to make it tomorrow... very sad indeed .....

raffle on sunracer or give em away and take donations :) ...either way its all good ...

09-08-2005, 07:35 PM
I was just thinking the same way as newto the game,maybe give 1 away for a striper catch & raffle for the rest to go to the NO people.

09-08-2005, 11:08 PM
I say first-third get the cash prize for sturgeon. First through third on the striper side get the prizes. Everyone bring a five dollar bill for the raffle ticket/red cross charity box and killer collects and forwards that amount. Cuz hell, you're gonna need bait anyway right? That means you got pocket change available. So why not? We ought to then raffle off the other stuff whatever that is.

09-09-2005, 07:09 AM
Well after thinking about it last night, I never intended to make anyone have to pay more money to win these prizes so I'm going to give them away, we can always have a can for donations to N.O and anyone who wants to contribute can.I'll put in the first $10.00

So this is the break down

Smallest legal Sturgeon= Mitchell Riptide Combo
Big Striper= Penn 320GTI
Heaviest Sturgeon= Penn 320GTI

I picked Heavy fish because the Derby win is by longest legal fish and that dosen't mean it will be the heavy one..

If I score on more prizes we can just put everyone in the hat and draw for them..

I think thats a great idea, sunracer.

09-09-2005, 02:17 PM
SS you know me I'm just trying to do my part to make this a great event for everyone,, WHY you ask??

09-09-2005, 05:08 PM
I think we need to do something special for Killer & Sun for all the effort they've put into this thing for all of us...
Even though I'm not gonna make it now I sure appreciate what they've done to put this together & well be there in spirit..
