IMO, I think some people here take AOTY too serious!   :smt003

Nothing to lose sleep over? There are at least four guys that are less than a moderate crappy behind me.....maybe already ahead of me. I didn't sleep a wink last night....don't see much hope for tonight or tomorrow either.....

Thanks for posting the data Allen.

Looking at the Flounder plot, I suspect the median and avg appear lower because the category includes 2 really different species (at least).  There is a cluster of points with low scores (sand dabs) and a cluster with higher scores (starry flounder).  Maybe starry flounder pt/inch is reasonable, while sand dabs should be separated out, dropped or scored higher if there is interest in trying to balance across species/categories.

I want to fish alongside you!

I fished with Eric once. If ever you would like to know how inadequate your skills are, that's the place to find out  :smt002

Some people make a simple request.....and get what they want.

http://www.norcalkayakanglers.com/index.php/topic,21879.0.html
actually, i didnt want spotted bass as their own category, i just wanted them counted as a bass, didnt seem reasonable for a black bass to not count in the tournament whatsoever.  i didnt ask for 20 fish categories, that was come up by the committee.

 i still can't believe crappie are even on the list. This ain't the f*ckin dime ride at chucke cheese. This is the highly coveted and heavily sought after NCKA-AOTY TITLE.  In addition to being fairly dangerous and extremely painful to fish for; sturgeon are pretty f*ckin hard to come by. IMO, the fact that a crappie can be worth the same as a sturgeon is absolutely ridiculous. I vote for a sturgeon point increase. Is it time to vote yet?

Nope, it's not time to vote.  It's time to lock this thread down.

But I'll leave you with this thought.

The top 5 are separated by <100 points.  Their average points per fish vary <10 points.  And if sturgeon had an increased points per inch, the top 5 would not have changed.  That's a pretty tight grouping at the top.

At NWKA it gets even better.  This week Zee entered a fish that tied him (exactly!) for first.  Then yesterday he entered a fish that put him in first.  Another photo finish over there.

We must be doing something right to have exciting photo finishes like this.  Why mess with something if it ain't broken?
