And The Winners Are...

Sorry this took so long to get up, I received about 275 entries (individual photos) into this year's 2014 Photo Contest. I spent all day yesterday judging photos and almost called a draw in multiple categories...the submissions were phenomenal, some of the best I've seen. The gear we're giving away this year is pretty ridiculous, seriously, its well over $1,000!

If you need a little refresher, heres how the photo contest worked...


-Photos were submitted to us for judging

-Max of 4 pictures per person (one per category).

-The categories were:
  • Best Picture
  • Biggest Carp
  • Prettiest Carp
  • Ugliest Carp

-1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners were be selected for each category.

-Submissions were due by August 24th, 2014 by 8am.
