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 have changed the donation method this year to streamline things and get the most money possible to HOW. We hope to improve this further for next year, but for now this is the plan:
  • 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. (We did not intend to increase the cost of entry but the donate page for the chapters does not have a $40 option. If the extra $10 is a financial hardship for you please PM me and I'll work it out.)
  • PM me a screenshot of your receipt that clearly shows the date (or a redacted screenshot if you prefer). 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.)
  • if you want to enter fish caught January 1 - January 24, 2019 you have until February 7, 2019 to donate and notify me. Otherwise the usual rules apply.
  • Give me a couple of days to activate you.

NEW SPECIES
Some of the front-row students have noticed that we've added two freshwater species. Well, actually, they're both available in saltwater as well.
  • Striper/Wiper @ 5.25 pts/in - Includes striped bass (Morone saxatilis) and hybrid striped bass (Morone saxatilis X M. chrysops)
  • American Shad @ 7.0 pts/in - (Alosa sapidissima)

POINTS UPDATES
After careful consideration we've updated the points for panfish and yellow perch:
  • Panfish: 14.0 pts/in
  • Yellow Perch: 13.5 pts/in

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:

Oh, and check out this awesome addition to the leaderboard: http://aoty.northwestkayakanglers.com/leader_board/goat It shows you your top ten fish across all years. It's a great way to measure yourself against the all-time greats. (There is currently an issue with fish of the same species and length, we're working on it.)

Great question! I'm working that out right now. I'll get an update ASAP.

We always give you 2 weeks grace at the beginning of the year, so if we don't have the payment stuff sorted out you can start fishing January 1, and we'll honor your catches if you pay up by the 14th of January.

It should work out, yes. Normally I'd just say "no problem, yes!" but we're changing the payment details a little this year (just who collects the money, not the cost to enter or anything that affects participants directly). So until we get that sorted out I don't want to open the flood gates. But if you need to do it today we'll work it out, yes.

Will the committee be changing the eligible fish this year?  Still waiting for striped bass to show up on the list...
There's nothing wrong with me that reincarnation won't fix.

Aw, come on, that deserves a "Sorry" at least.   :laugh:

I look forward to competing for AOTY 2019!

I read thru the rules a couple times and still have one question: is only 1 entry per species required? Or can I submit multiple entries for a single species and have the largest entry count towards points?

You can start fishing now, just keep track of your entries. We are considering some changes to the payment method and it may take some time to work out the details. We will honor fish caught from Jan 1 until the time a payment option becomes available (plus a little grace period) for people who register then.

Keep looking back here for news - we're working on it - and fish on!
