Thanks Lauren,

I really like the new setup...

1.) Direct donation to HOW.. cuts out the middle man (i.e. me) and allows people who can take itemized deductions to deduct this donation for themselves.

2.) HOW should see a spike in activity from the Pacific Northwest area.  Granted they won't get that big check all at once from NWKA at the end of the year, but sometimes having more in smaller donations is better for non-profits.

3.) Increased points for panfish.

4.) Shad!  --- I jokingly asked for tarpon... but I'll take these micro-versions.   It's a really underrated fishery that more people should take advantage of.   I'd love to see some Umpqua shad reports this year.   They make great sport, great bait, and they taste great smoked and canned.

5.) Youth AOTY... if you have a kid, take them kayak fishing and enter them into the youth AOTY. It's free with your adult AOTY registration and a great way to get kids interested in the sport.  Also someone needs to knock my son Owen off the AOTY thrown for once.

Thanks Brian, and thank you for all that you do for AOTY! For those of you who don't know, Brian authored and rebuilt the entire AOTY system and he's the guy I bother with questions. We wouldn't be doing this without him.

I will modify the top post, but another note: THE GRACE PERIOD ENDS FEBRUARY 7. You have 2 weeks from now to get registered if you want to enter fish that were caught before now.

I've signed up again although I'm not sure why, unless it's just my quest for even tinier fish.

Woah! There's a tiny fish crown? I'm in on that one. Maybe my talent of catching fish smaller than the lure that I'm using will finally come in handy!  ;D

For 2018 there was a tiny trophy, a prize bag including a gift cert for Outdoorplay, and other goodies. Get in on it!

Just want to wish everyone good luck this year. I'm going to fish harder and try to place a little higher this year so watch out ;) As an added incentive to sign up and fish, I will be throwing down a special prize for the 2019 winner. Looking in to a couple of things but I guarantee it will be pretty cool, you will want to win it. Hope to see you guys on the water. jed

I'm seeing a lot of new user names coming through - I love it! Apologies if it takes me a day or two to get you set up - I'll try to do it within a couple of days in most cases. Don't let that keep you from fishing! The date on your HOW donation is your start date, regardless of when I make it official.

Question about the Tiny Fish Slam...How are the points calculated?  I have a different point total for the tiny fish than I do the overall board, with the same two fish.  Curious is all.

If I remember correctly it is 200 points - your entry points = tiny fish points.

There may be some filtering for excluding fish that are over 200 points or something like that as well.
