500 Bonus Point Challenge

Post by Owl on Wed Apr 27, 2011 1:50 pm

This bonus challenge was inspired by the "Wednesday Nibbles" post on Troutrageous!

For 500 bonus points, produce a video of you catching a fish ( any species) on a stick. A real stick. From the woods.


Stick, line, fly = fish.

The catch? The fish has to be measured and shown clearly in the video to be 10 inches long or longer. ( Hey, this is OJDC. Just any old fish would be too easy! Smile )

You have until Monday. Report it on this thread. Good luck!

Oh, and does it HAVE to be with a fly - or can it just be catching a fish with bait or lure - and if it has to be with a fly dressed hook - can we add things like corn, garden hackle, or bread to the fly? I'm having visions of fighting a 5lb carp with a branch cut off the willow in the back yard - but the pond I fish carp at is too ugly nasty, and the fish won't take a fly there...

It's going to be hard enough to catch a 10 inch or bigger fish on a stick. so....the bait can be whatever you want. Remember you have until Monday. I don't know if you have them where you are, but I used to catch some 11 and 12 inch golden shiners at night with bread. But be warned if you have 'em and want to try it - they fight harder than you might think. Wink Good luck!

Woot - maybe I'll get lucky and get a 10lb carp XD that'd be fun on a stick. And when I get it in, I can use the fishing rod to beat it over the head and bring back home for some crab bait! (I'm jonesing for fresh crab... got to get my buddy out on the bay with his boat soon!)

If it makes you feel any better, I couldn't catch a 10incher. I know we have until monday, but I won't be able to get out this weekend to try it again. I had fun though.
