I also want to propose an anadramous slam, but i feel it would be fairly complicated for the competitors to click buttons about where they caught a fish and one slam already includes stripers so probably going to sit on that a bit.

I think the three slams we have this year are pretty solid. If they are popular and we can get some cool prizes we can think about adding more.  Otherwise it ends up being more work for the committee to chase down sponsors. 

How about a trash fish slam?  Maybe carp, pikeminnow, sucker, and bat ray/misc. shark that isn't a thresher or leopard?
I think our goal right now is to work within the parameters we have rather than try to add non-counting fish towards the top 10.  But those are definitely interesting ideas. 



Also, I hate carp so I would always vote against any proposal that includes them, so the other committee members would have to vote it in.
Pretty cool BMB!!! Thank you for doing this!!!
Yeah how about bring back the “Top 10” recognitions!?!?

Which Top 10 are you talking about?  You mean original 10?  Or something else?  We are working on OG10 right now but have to make sure Brian can implement it without swamping him.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them and you have their shoes.

Will it still be the one of each species within the slam category?

Great concept. I'll sign up soon enough.

Since people seem to throwing out ideas, how about SLAMS for certain bodies of water? Don't know how it would work in the salt though. Catch any 3 or 4 different species that count towards AOTY in a day and tag the lake. Add up the points on that day and there is your score.  Someone out fished you on your favorite lake? Go beat the score.  Little mini competitions I guess. With the vast amount of lakes it would be hard to sponsor each one so maybe just have it for bragging rights.

Usually we do it under the AOTD (Angler Of The Day) format.

Are you saying you only fish at one lake?

Nope, I fish 3  :smt002

Yes. The AOTY website will be updated with the capability to add together your top fish of each species to compile a slam.

Thanks.  Great idea.  Will be really fun to follow as the year progresses.
