    Now that we have a name and we are getting close, here is our team's offical thread.

    Here is the offical rules for scoring:

    Scoring:
    -Only Northern Pike speared in Michigan waters will be scored in this contest
    -Scoring will be length based using MDNR Master Angler measurement guidlines: http://www.michigan.gov/documents/dn...e_307598_7.pdf
    -The top 3 fish lengths from each team will be used to determine total team length, measured to the nearest 1/8".
    -Only legally speared fish will be counted in the contest. The use of "cheater" hooks on decoys or treble hooked live decoys shall be prohibited.
    -Fish must be speared by a registered team member to count.
    -Entries from all legal waters (public and private) will be accepted.
    -Each individual team member may only contribute 1 fish towards their team limit of 3. However, individuals my upgrade their entries unlimited times.
    -A clear picture of the entire fish with a measuring tape next to it, and a close up of the claimed length must be posted in the contest scoring thread (to be created). A spear must be present in at least one of the pictures. A 3" deduction per fish will be given for not having a spear in a photo.


    This team contest will run from Jan 1 2013, until Midnight March 3, 2013. Fish must be speared within these dates to count for this contest.

    I'll be out tomorrow evening and Sunday in my portable. I'm waiting for the ice to get a little better before I put out my hard shanty.
