Post your Roundup Photos Here

Wow, what a weekend!  Thanks to everybody who came for all of their hard work and enthusiasm for the premiere roughfishing gathering on earth.  Several interesting species were caught beyond the usual suspects.  I'm going to make an attempt at a roundup species list in another post.  Fishing was slow this year.  At the end of the three-hour contest, two anglers (D.T. and Eric Kol) were tied with 4 species apiece.  So, for the second year in a row, the contest went to a sudden-death fishoff. Eric won the sudden-death round with a smallmouth bass after about an hour, becoming the first person to take home the coveted Silver Redhorse Trophy twice. 

Frogchaser is going to compile some of the best pictures for the writeup, so please help her out and post your best pics in this thread for the official report!  You can do this by either making a gallery here, or linking to another gallery, at Picasa or something.

MooneyeMags I guess.....

I had fun, it was good seeing you all again and visiting that beautiful area.  I didn't catch many species, but did alright.  I got a Shovelnose out of my kayak, got a nice Rainbow Trout and caught a ton of Mooneye, including my biggest.  I caught 8 frickin' Mooneye during the contest and 1 Rainbow.  Moons were lovin' my presentation I guess.  I couldn't fanagle a Hogsucker for my life, even though others caught multiples.  I had a Largemouth Bass up to shore and it got off, so thats kind of rare for the Root.  I never even caught a Redhorse this weekend.  Til' next time, heres my pics.

It doesn't matter what you're fishing for, just as long as you're out there doing it.

I forgot my camera so the

I forgot my camera so the only pic I have is of this sleep deprived deranged man with a Shovelnose taken by Avid:


I had a great time though - always fun to hang out with people.  Times like that remind me that I fish alone a little too often.  Oh and Pat-the-nat's muskie baits look awesome!  I can't wait to give them a swim...

No pics to add, just a few

No pics to add, just a few reflections and memories (seemed appropriate enough for this forum):

1. Cool to see Mitch pull in a giant brown trout and a big smallmouth bass.   He returned the bass to the water in a rather unceremonious fashion, to which Avid aptly replied, "I guess now we know what you think of bass."

2. Dutch pulling in a zillion hogsuckers on Friday night, while all I caught was a small bullhead (but see #4 below).

3. Superfrog's sneaky rainbow that dove through the rocks and cost him a species during the contest.

4. Catching a black bullhead on Friday night. Might not seem like much, but if perfectly fulfilled my goal of catching something a little bit unusual for the Root River.  Also caught a decent channel cat on Sat. night.

5. Doc catching, fileting, and eating a sauger within what seemed like less than 5 minutes.

6. Avery rocking the contest with 3 species caught.
