I think there was a couple links and one was goofy. This one is showing the right scores on my desk top but still showing random fish. Not the biggest  http://www.aoty.northwestkayakanglers.com/leader_board/goat

That one seems to work, other than showing the wrong fish when you click on them. Not a big deal though. Hoping to move up a couple spots this year

Do you mean the vast amount of decimal places on some scores? Not just you. Took me a while to find the goat board.

That "decimal" anomaly happened to my scores last summer. Captain Redbeard identified the phenomena when a specific condition exists on the entries.

If you enter a species in the General tackle catch category, and at some point enter the exact same size fish in that species in the FLY category, the algorithm "freaks" on a duplicate [valid] entry so the tiny tweak on the length is necessary to accommodate both fish in the two categories. By adding 0.001" to the length of the identical fish it creates a monster decimal number in the points calculation which really doesn't affect the standings.

Truly my pleasure.

For something like a decade or more, the smaller size jigs in chovy color, have slayed trout and bass for me. The smallies really like em!

I started using their bigger sizes for bottom fish, once I moved to OR, and they do not disappoint.

Durable and easy to use.

Just yesterday, I was on the Willy, had a Hookup Bait just hanging a six or eight feet below the kayak, rod in holder, whilst I drifted, and tried to eat lunch.....
I had several interruptions!
A day without fishing probably wouldn't kill me,
but why risk it?

I have caught a 15lb cutthroat trout out of pyramid lake on one of their smaller jigs... I do not care much for the owner of the company because he is a dirtbag poacher but I do like the baits. they last longer than bass tube baits and I do like that they are made with owner hooks. I havent bought them since he came to Klamath an illegally fished for browns on closed waters and then posted them up all over social media.


"during the summer of 2010, he was cited twice by the California Department of Fish and Game for two independent fishing and boating violations. Additionally, Chad Gierlich was falsely reporting his poached deer to the California Bowmen Hunter's Association as legitimate kills and had several of his poached deer listed as records."

Perhaps sponsoring AOTY is his way of cleaning his karma?  Whatever.  We should thank Hookup Baits for their generous donation, being mindful that a thank you is not the same as forgiveness.

Just my opinion and I do not fault anyone for theirs.
Everything will be all right in the end, so if it's not all right, then it's not yet the end.

Well, I am not sure what to tell you. Did it say what it didn't like about the password? Maybe just add a special character? I know that I had to use my regular password, except I had to add an ! to the end.

Captain Redbeard looking into it. You are all set other than you need to submit a photo of your donation receipt to Heroes on the Water.
Thank you

Well, that is submit it to Captain Redbeard in a PM. Not to HOW just in case you interpreted the note that way.  ;D  {No Malice intended Drifter!}

Howdy Mr. Fisherman - I sent you a PM but just in case you don't notice - check your private messages and give me a holler. It looks like you're set up to me.

I wouldn't hold my breath on any substantial changes to it, but what exactly are you looking for?

Shout out to two AOTY sponsors - Pitbull Tackle and Hookup Baits, both of which helped me put fish in the kayak last weekend.

I don't fish a lot of flutter or other iron jigs but the Pitbull Tackle flutter jig got action immediately. On the Hookup Baits front, I fished the 1.5oz. version and it got plenty of bites. It's also plenty spendy, but it did hold up well to lingcod teeth.
