Frederick,

I hope you are talking about the free beer surf brings for you to enjoy during the float....... cuz that's all you'll be getting.

I have the float (surf knows this one) but I also have secret take out that will knock off the last 2.5 miles of dead water. I understand that you'd like to get this done ASAP but I'm going to urge patience. If we can stop getting rain for 2 frigging days, conditions will improve. Harrisburg gauge below 3.5' (11,000 - 14,000 cfs) is what we need. The difference in action between 4' and 3.5' is pretty huge. Clarity yesterday was less than 6" in most places.

K-fish is right....the rumble on the river you hear has been a thunderstorm just about every day.

Hopefully the River will finally get down to a decent level, soon.

Are we doing # of fish caught or total inches caught? I'd also like to lobby for catfish to count as double.

Surf & Fred are rough fish specialists > catties, carp, suckers, chubs, fallfish, snakeheads....

Smallies should only count and we should deduct for each of the rough fish caught.

Found this ↓ on their Facebook page!

I am not a rough fish specialist--that would be Fred. You won't see me trying to land a carp on purpose. Smallies only, and I'd say single biggest fish wins. Otherwise, there are techniques where we could just pull fish after fish and have three-digit totals of 10" fish.

And we should be using the same ramps to put-in and take-out, that way we can just run the single shuttle. Which float are we thinking? I don't see any need to float much more than 4-5 miles on the Susky, with all the water available to fish in that distance.

Tournament rules will be kept simple. Here they are:

- Fly fishing only. Multiple flies can be fished and they can have multiple hooks (no trebles).

-All smallmouth bass caught, regardless of size, will count for ONE POINT. All fish caught will be immediately released. A fish is defined as "caught" if either angler in the boat physically touches the fish.

-Since smallies are the target.... All other fish species caught will count for ONE HALF POINT if they are at least 12" in length.

-Score will be maintained via honor system per boat. I recommend a clipboard or number clicker to keep count.

-Both boats will start at the same time and take out at the same points by a certain end time (Place and times TBD). Two men per boat. No "third rowers" etc allowed.

-Winning team will be determined by TOTAL POINTS earned.

Appeals for changes to the rules will be considered.

Beer will be decided per consensus of the contestants.

This is highly important.

So, the key to victory is catching numbers not size. Don't waste time measuring or weighing bass. Bring 'em in, touch 'em, get 'em off the hook quickly. Drink lots of water.

Keep casting, keep catching, keep moving, and keep in mind the other boat has got two of the best fly fishermen in Pennsylvania... who will never quit!

The best team WILL win.

At this point, a date, time, and location will need to be agreed upon. The WW jam is August 25th-27th. A different date should probably be considered.

Feel free to discuss this via PM or by post in this thread.

I've already submitted location by PM to surf. I think this will be fast and furious catching if we let the water get to 3.5' on Harrisburg gauge.

Tom.....your boat or mine? PS. No motors permitted. Old school rowing only.

I don't really own any bass rod, line or flies. God help you two if I out fish either of you with my trout gear. Lol. And......wild bass only. Any stocked bass are -1 point. If unsure, snap a pic and post it for review on the forum. LMAO
