HOW TO SIGN UP
  • (If you have participated before you do not need to sign up again.)
  • Go to http://aoty.northwestkayakanglers.com/
  • Click the "Sign Up" button and follow the instructions.
  • If the state where you live does not require you to buy an adult angling license yet, you are Youth. Otherwise you are not.
  • Signing up does not mean you are done! (See below)

HOW TO DONATE
We are using the same donation method this year that we used last year:
  • Donate directly to the HOW chapter of your choice by going here: https://heroesonthewater.z2systems.com/np/clients/heroesonthewater/survey.jsp?surveyId=1&
  • Please donate $50 or more.
  • PM me a screenshot of your receipt that clearly shows the date. If you need to email instead please send me a PM and I will give you my email address. Include your AOTY screen name! (I don't know all of you, even though I try, and also I'm horrible with names.)
  • Give me a couple of days to activate you. (NOTE: If you participated last year I won't activate you until after we wrap 2019, but still send me your screenshot and feel free to fish and we'll get you set up after we archive 2019.)

NO NEW RULES THIS YEAR
Same rules as 2019.

GENERAL INFO
If you are interested in Angler of The Year but aren't sure what it's all about, check out previous years' threads and the AOTY home page:

Bonus big fish karma goes to fearlessguster for being the first competitor to sign up in the new decade!

But the BIG NEWS is that our very own Drifter2007 has stepped up to collect donations for prizes! If you like winning fun stuff for fishing and supporting HOW, give him a shout out or a slap on the back. I'm truly grateful for him stepping up to work on this.

You won't see it until we get the 2020 leaderboard set up, but fearlessguster takes the early lead with a rainbow trout!

Thanks for all your hard work with setting up AOTY this year! My goal for 2020 is to actually post a fish, AND get more points than my five year old. I failed at both of those goals the last couple of years  ;D

My goal for the year is to catch at least 10 species that get points. Also, my ongoing bucket list wish to catch a halibut from a kayak would be cool, like SUPER cool!
2020 AOTY 3rd Place
2019 ORC 4th Place.
2017 ORC 8th Place

I bought my license and signed up today. This will be my 9th attempt. I hope more people sign up. It's a challenge to set goals and then find out it's harder than you thought.

Im in again. I Would also like to finally get a halibut this year, along with some personal goals that I just cant quite seem to pull off. 40" Ling, 40" Chinook, 40" Striper, 20"Bass, and a few others.

I can't believe you haven't caught a 40" ling. You're like the kayak lingcod master. This is your year!

UPDATE: I'm loving all the interest already so sign up and send in your HOW screenshots and let's have an awesome year!

To those of you who participated last year: I won't register you until after January 14 when we officially wrap 2019 because it will mess up last year's results. But your donation date is still your start date, so go ahead and send them in, and fish, and I'll get it squared away after the 14th.

Fish hard!

Ive caught plenty of 38-39 inchers. Just cant get over the hump. Same with the Chinook and bass. Hopefully this is the year!

I'd like to take a moment to shout out to NWKA's bsteves.

The AOTY software is built and maintained by him with 100% donated effort, and he makes improvements every year. It's really selfless of him to share his talents with the community this way and I really appreciate all he does to make sure AOTY goes smoothly.

If any of you Top Guns want something new to shoot for, check out the recently improved AOTY GOAT list, which is the top 10 competitors' top 10 fish across all years:

http://aoty.northwestkayakanglers.com/leader_board/goat

There's some newer faces and some NWKA legends represented there. I'm not going to lie, getting on that list is a motivator for me.

Thanks Brian.  Noticed something weird about the fish on the GOAT list.  The point totals look correct but the lengths are wrong.
