In the Main Contest, Moose 439 registered an incredible 94 different standard freshwater species and became Champion for the 3rd consecutive year. 94 species is a new record for the contest, and Moose's amazing June run will go down in history as one of the greatest Roughfishing accomplishments ever. Second place went to FishingDude14 with a whopping 73, and 3rd place goes to roughfish29 with 53.
In the Kid's division, FishingPals4Life also won his 3rd consecutive contest with a grand total of 32 species. This sets a new record for the Kid's division! Big congratulations also to Flytyin'Joel who caught 25 species, and to Iris with 24. All of the kids did a great job, and they registered 2 species that none of the adults did - northern cisco and alligator gar.
1,876 fish were registered by the entire field representing 128 different species! These numbers are both all-time contest records. 8 anglers achieved 40 or more species, which is very difficult to accomplish. Everyone who entered and registered fish should be proud of their catches.
Thanks to all of you for an exciting 2017 contest!
