DOTY 2016 Prize updates
« on: October 19, 2016, 01:43:43 PM »
Little over 2 months left in this year's DOTY competition!!

DG still has a commanding lead followed by Yowlie, Rob Luiz and Thomas:

But...Steve aka lorikay2 and LiveAloha Kris Cortez each have halibut in their back pocket so could easily make a run for the top spots!

The DOTY winner will get a custom hand carved wooden "Piscean Plaque" and a killer KelpCamo Jackson Kayak Kraken 13.5 that is already in my back yard.

Second and Third places will get custom Amadeo prints!

Second place will also get a Forest color 85 quart Orion Cooler (also already at my house lol).

There will also be plaques/trophies for the biggest fish in each category...last year Kris Cortez' wife Yohanna made them and they were killer so hopefully this year they will be the same or even better!

PacificNalu will also be donating a pair of LeaderFins AND a SalviMar Speargun with Reel to the Female who finishes DOTY with the top score in 2016!!

AND there is a "Participation Raffle" prize of a brand new beautiful Wilderness Systems Tarpon 130X kayak!!

"Each participant in AOTY/DOTY will automatically receive one entry into a raffle once they pay the $40 entry fee. Participants can receive up to 20 additional raffle entries for each species submitted and approved in both AOTY and DOTY. 21 entries into the raffle will be the max that any player can have. The goal of the raffle is to encourage participation and friendly competition amongst those anglers and divers that may not be able to invest the amount of time needed to finish in the top three"

There will also be additional prizes from our generous sponsors including Red Triangle Spearfishing, Amadeo Bachar, Austin's Diving, Pacific Nalu, Neptonic Systems, Kayak Connection, Austin Derry and Diver Dan's.

I'm looking forward to see how the next two months go, and who gets to go home with these great prizes!!

Sincerely,

Jim

Lots of great prizes and supporting businesses. 

As for a commanding lead it's only 1 fish and we all know folks are going to step it up in December and bump me.  Well probably sooner than that as I am not able to get south for awhile for my sheepshead or to upgrade some of my fish. 

It would be easier and less letters to put DG on the 1st place plaque so you all should just stop entering fish to make it easier for the artist to finish the plaque.  And I would be honored to have a Jackson Kayak for folks to use when they are in town as long as they are not sponsored by other kayak companies and afraid to be photographed on it.

Thanks volunteers and sponsors, namely Jim and Jackson kayak.  Safe diving to the competitors.  It's going to be a fun finish . . . .

Lol!!

Well, you've got one ticket for the WS Tarpon kayak at least!!

 ;)

Deke went on a rampage last year and killed a ton of fish right at the end and scored very high...plenty of time left!

 :)

Thanks again to all who are playing!!

Sincerely,

Jim
