Well for the FIRST ever monthly AKFF National Fishing Comp, I think we all deserve a pat on the back. Well done to all who actively participated and caught fish, and 'better luck next time' to those who either didn't get the chance to participate, or came home empty handed.

The fact that we were out there 'having a go' is reason enough for this to continue each month. I think that one of the moderators?? was going to coordinate this comp in future, but after consultation with Travis (Scotty Beefs) I am now posting winners of the May awards. Well done to all award winners and lets see if we can build on this next time.

Largest Bream - Peril with his 41cm Forster bewdy
Longest Flathead - Yakatak with "Bertha" the 60cm ripper
Largest Snapper/Squire - Uncontested
"Best" Estuary fish - Peril with his 50cm Flathead "Algernon"
"Best" Freshwater fish - Uncontested
"Most Species Caught" - Jake with 7 species
"Best" Offshore fish - Daveyak with 'Barry" the 50cm Bonito
"Catch of the Day" - Rawprawns Son (Minishrimp??) with his 31cm Bream

So there you go! Congrats all.

As you can see, there were a few categories that didn't get any fish entered, all the more reason to have a go next time. Also, we have planned to enter a "mystery" award each month to encourage as many entries as possible - just becasue there's a bigger fish already entered, please don't hold off entering your catch details/pics - you're still in the hunt!

Next competition planned for Thursday 1st - Wednesday 7th June with results to be posted by Friday 9th June.

Hi Davey G,

Thank you very much for doing this mate. Scott (bent) had asked me to do this but I have been a little busy over the past few days with some other committments. Mate, If you would be happy to take this on, I would be very grateful.

Well done to all you guys who participated in this. I reckon it is a credit to the forum and our members that such a thing could be organised so quickly and efficiently. I bloody love this little community and am very proud to be part of it.

Yeah well done to all for organising this comp. I look forward to participating in the future. This competition done in the right spirit (which I have no doubt it will continue to be) is a fantastic idea.

Thank you guys for running the comp and to Scotty Beefs for the idea. The folk on this forum are fantastic the way you (we!) have worked together to have fun with this thing. Please take note how minishrimp has been encouraged. I think we as a community should be very happy about this as we are promoting healthy lifestyle.

I sadly couldn't enter the comp as my camera is stuffed. And my wife would not let me put the fish on the scanner to get a digital pic of them. Ah well, maybe next time. {Next time she goes out of the house that is.}

Good on ya folk.

Congratulations to all the winners! Hopefully everyone had a bit of fun with the idea and it will continue to take off. I also vote that for each entry it remains compulsary to give your fish a name :lol:

Occy, dont be ridiculous - a several kilometre long extension cord?!? Why wouldn't you just take a solar powered scanner out instead? :wink:

Well done everyone. Things like this do indeed inspire people to new heights.
As exhibited by Troppo with his suggestion about replacing digital camera's with scanners. You are an idiot Troppo. Where are you going to get an extension cord several kilometres long? :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
Occy: Thank you for the compliment, thinking I could paddle several kms. Now I understand why the scanner stopped working after 100 m. Plug pulled out.

Scotty Beefs: Solar powered? You certainly are a man of ideas.
