One additional note, I think everyone enjoys seeing all the pictures which are entered in the contest. I just want to note that there is a rule that in order to win the photo needs to be uploaded to the site to win. The reason for this is there is technology dependent on site loaded photos in order to move winners to other pages automatically and enters winning photos in the year end contest. I apologize for the any inconvenience.

I love this picture because it has my son and I both in the picture. I had the pole and he got the Northern into the canoe with no net.

I love your picture Snakecharmer! I think your entire picture tells a story! I like that you can see the lake where the prize was caught, you have captured the expression of pride on the gentleman's face, and the fish almost seems happy to be someone's dinner!

Really, really good!

Thanks Lost Paddle! That photo is a favorite of mine for some of the same reasons you mentioned. And I like to think that the fish still roams the rock piles and wind-swept shores of Lake Agnes - it was released seconds after the picture was taken.
