    We are having an invitational catfish contest between Ohio and Pennsylvania. Please post each a some short description of your pennsylvanian catch in this thread

    Qualifying size is
    channel 7#+or 27"
    flatheads 25#

    no trots,snagging, jugging, or noodling...not cuz I'm being snobbish but They're illegal in PA and would give the one state an unfair advantage.

    Anglers must be a BOC brother . with ONE exception. if a BOC brother takes a kid on a fishing catches a qualifying fish on a fishing trip, it can be counted.

    no picture needed but suggested.

    the state wins if it gets the most fish. honerable mention for the most fishermen. personally I will keep track of each qualifying angler and update it on the thread "Invitation fall catfish contest"...

    blues can't count cuz we don't have any

    I need Date, Kind of fish, weight, and place (not neccesarily specific)

    Tight lines and GO PENNSYLVANIA!

    Hell, I have not been fishing nearly enough this summer and this just the excuse I was looking for to go tonight.

    "Sorry honey, the state needs me." :wink:

    Do Ohio fish count from pay ponds? I would also like seeing the Flathead weight reduced to about 15# cause other than that annoying river in Philadelphia there aren't a lot of 25#'ers being caught! :wink: :eek:oooh: :smile2:

    I posted about that on there board. we're definitely not going to do pay ponds.

    as for the weight, 25# seems like alot to me... but General tan might disagree with you:smile2:. this is why it is a little more awkward with flatheads. I adopted the channel contest, and I feel bold to be like 'this is this and that is that'...

    now theres more people, more opinion. Ohio's big on there flats. take a gander at 'fall flathead' it goes for like 5 pages...

    hopefully people are like 'ok..but that a lot of fish!' so be it, if more people can participate. we'll just hang on tight and see what people say...

    that been my attitude since coming up with this idae.

    15 lb fish are very common.

    If you want to lower the weight standard make it 20lbs.

    After taking Ohio, maybe we can go for the BIG DOG states next year like South Carolina, Texas, or Tenneessee.

    We take down one of these 3, we'll make the Ketstone State one of the best catfishing states in the country.

    count me in. i think 25# is fine, if i could have hooked up with all the big fish i have had on this year or landed them i would have had the best year ever. as said before with fall coming the hogs should be putting the feed bag on.

    Maybe you guys should browse through my picture gallery before throwing down the glove. :wink:

    And I say we should require a picture of the fish. I made it a rule for Ohio so you guys can have something to drool over.

    I can understand why you would need to include the Steelers/Browns game for points. Let the Browns help you win a catfish contest, they help everyone else win......

    Do you want us to give you a weight handicap too?:smile2:
