Default 2017 Annual First Caught Springer Contest! New Prize! Okuma!

Welcome to the
annual
2017 Ifish First Caught
Springer Contest!





WOW! Thanks to Okuma!!!! Click here to look at this!
Okuma's new Guide Select Classic salmon trolling rods!

• Features premium ALPS guides
• Fuji reel seats for maximum durability
• Moderate tapered rod banks specifically designed for PNW Salmon
• 3K woven grips with unique carbon screw down foregrip
• The combination of materials and tapers make the Classic our
most durable Salmon rod series


First Prize!
Okuma's new Guide Select Classic salmon trolling rod!
and...
EIGHT awesome ShortBus Flashers!)



Second Prize

Okuma's new Guide Select Classic salmon trolling rod!
and FOUR Shortbus Flashers,



Rods by Okuma!



For verification we will be using any major local newspaper along with any ifish logo.
The Columbian or The Daily Oregonian, so that we can identify the date-
along with any ifish logo that is printed yourself, on a shirt, a decal, etc.
You can print out a decal here, but we are sold out!



Above is the 2016 winner!

I am out of decals at the moment, but you can print one out so that you have one handy.

Again, we will be asking for proof of date by taking a picture of the fish with a copy of page one of that day's newspaper, therefore proving to your peers the date the fish was caught.


Rules:

1. You must have in the picture some kind of ifish or salty dog bling or logo, including but not limited to; ...hats, sweatshirts, t shirts, decal etc. You can even print off an ifish discussion board logo or front page and use that. Just SOMETHING that shows you are fishing to win this Ifish contest! Remember, If you don't have a decal, no worries! Quickly borrow one from a friend! Never be without ifish bling! Fish with ifish friends who have some! It's neat to have a decal on your rig, because people will recognize you as you truck along the hiway! I have so much fun honking and waving at folks!

Make sure to learn the...



You may also order stuff
, here, just to keep in your boat so that you are ready!

2. You must post a full length picture of the fish, showing the entire fish so that we can easily tell that it is a springer. In the background, or along with it must be the front page of that day's newspaper, with the date that it is caught, and posted that day, or within ONE day of the paper's date. (In case you cannot get to ifish that day!) It must be one of the known, major news papers front pages, so that we can easily determine and prove what date it was caught.

3) Jack Salmon do not count. It must be a fin clipped, adult salmonid over 24 inches!

4) This contest is for ifish members ONLY. You must be an active ifish member, having registered on the www.ifish.net board before January 1st, 2017, and have at least
20 contributing posts to enter the contest.
No "Yup, that's a pretty fish" posts! Honest, helpful and contributing means that you contribute information to the ifish board. This will give you incentive to join us right now in order to play! Come on! It's free to join!

5) The fish must be tagged on your own harvest card, and you must provide a copy of your license with this fish tagged, when you pick up your prize.

6) "First spring Chinook" will be awarded when it is posted first, caught after the contest start date, and verified by ifish and it's mod crew, and as soon as we can get to it.

7) All entries MUST be posted on this thread, which will be pinned to the top of ifish until someone wins the first (and second) prizes.

8) Only one winner per boat. (starting 2015)

Disclaimer and "uh oh! There is a problem!" --If there are any problems concerning proof of fish, or questions about rules, Jennie has the right to take all entries by her chosen date, and pick a random winner by means of spinning a carrot.

I have the right to correct any misinformation and edit this thread as I see fit to make the rules fair and easy to play for everyone.

This is a contest for the fun and enjoyment of all!

Could you guys please check this over? It's not official, till I say so! My hands are freezing. My computer is out in the garage, and it's 30 degrees out here, so there are BOUND to be mistakes!
Can you help this frozen lady out, here? Just proof it for me?
Questions on rules? Etc?
I'm still waiting on the prize confirmation. It will either be lamiglas or Okuma rods. Tee hee! That gets me so excited!

You guys? I'd never considered regarding all of Oregon, but I think it does include all. Doesn't it? You guys clarify?

Why just Oregon, wouldn't Washington be included?

Also, why shouldn't the entire state(s) be included?

Why do I ask? Have you ever run a big contest for a bunch of big scary fisherMEN?
If there is an error, it's scary!
So, I doubt myself constantly and instead, make you guys create the rules!

I told myself that I was actually going to fish in March for steelhead this year but who knows what'll happen. Got a springer in February last year, maybe I'll have to try at least once before March ;-)

The first few are almost certainly in the river now. A steelheader at Meldrum Bar could score at any time. My money is there or on one of the early regulars (see "2015 First Springer" )at Sellwood once the river clears from the approaching rains.

I think I got the First Willamette springer last year, cause I started the thread. With a nice springer on the 23rd of February 2016. It happened to be the ONLY fish I tagged last year. Everything else had too many fins.

Might have to spin some herring on a shake down run this weekend.

Motors need running and I have a heated doghouse seat.

Am I wrong to presume the front page of Longview's "The Daily News" paper would also be considered local / verifiable?

Someone calling Outdoor GPS said they saw one caught at Meldrum yesterday, but his call got dropped before Owin could get any details. Or proof. The official #1 will likely come from there before the main Willy gets back in shape.

Do NOT take your foot off the throttle. Continue to fight until this issue is dead. If you let pressure slip, even for a minute, they will try and weasel thru.
