I find it entertaining that Scallywag can mention a 20lb minimum size limit(halibut) and no one says anything but as soon as little Georgee Poorgee suggest raising the bar on the 'exotics' people pay attention.

I agree with Scallywag on creating separate classes, it will give the occasional fisher a better chance and may get more guys to join. I know several guys that did not join because of how the entire thing was setup and because of who joined. Anyway, I enjoyed the contest and had a great time, placing 6th isn't bad, not when you consider that I started kayak fishing in May of 2009.

Congrats to everyone that joined and got an opportunity to submit a fish. A special acknowledgement to the anglers that consistently submitted fish every month. I'm truly amazed and jealous of some of the big fish that were caught.

The competition got me out on the water more and it got me to focus on one species of fish. In the end, I became a better angler. I didn't put up the numbers to show it, but before WCW started I had never even caught a legal halibut. I had a really fun WCW season and I hope the competition continues.

Nothing wrong with entertaining 20/30/40 as minimum weights.

What about a Fly Fishing Division? I need an excuse to Finish my 10 weight rod (Scott Heli-ply Classic) and try out my new 12 weight Sage. Just finished my 8 weight Scott Heli-Ply.

Or how about bonus points for liteweight line class catches. (It would probably have to be on the 'honor' system.

If not this year maybe next year. (I should have my new Hobie by then and hopefully had and recovered from back surgery).

Congrats to everyone that participated and placed I know it took a lot of time on the water (or knowledge) to put up some of those points.
Special congrats to Sharon for showing that women 'can' fish with the men and can set a standard too. Might get more interest from our girlfriends and wives to show that they can compete with 'the boys' and have a chance (make it easier to justify the $ we spend on our toys if we can get them interested or understand our passion).

FFY.
