Mixed Bag Contest - update May 13th

Let's hope we never have another Spring like this one, ever again!  With so many businesses and schools on lockdown because of the Corona Virus, folks of all ages have taken to local waters in droves. It's like every day is a Saturday.  The big fish are staying deep, hoping to avoid getting run over by a bass boat or jet ski.

Fortunately, our Mixed Bag Contest is a CPRE tournament where size doesn't matter, but diversity does.  Any KFF member can participate, entry is free.  Just catch a fish, and submit it online via the MBC page.

We'll be awarding SIX places, but if you don't finish in the top 6, that's okay too. Because it means your name will be entered into the Consolation Drawing from all members who entered at least one fish. So get out and fish and put an entry in!

Here are the current standings (number is different species registered):
  • Glen Cormier (10) - bluegill, chain pickerel, channel catfish, redear, rainbow trout, yellow bass, largemouth bass, white crappie, warmouth, redbreast sunfish
