The zoo crew is going on a big fish mission. Jon, Eric and myself are going to team up and go for broke for 3 days at various and undisclosed locations. I will say that large striped bass (over 30 lbs) will be the target.

The challenge is: Post your prediction on the number of striper we will catch and release this weekend. The closest number wins, no REPEAT numbers. The winner will be announced Monday (if I have enough time and energy) and will receive a shiny new Mossy Oak Camo Soup hat!

Place your bets NOW! Guesses submitted after Thursday night at midnight will not be counted!

11 fish released if your target stays trophy hunting all 3 days.
My large fish guess is 33.5 pounds for the trip.
Good Luck zoo crew. Wink

16 fish with biggest at 34 (not that we're supposed to be guessing the biggest - but it can be our side bet, or the tie-breaker in the event that no one guesses the exact #, but 2 are evenly split on either side.... and you did not say "not to exceed" or whatever).

Have a blast!

3 days, various locations, targeting fish over 30lbs. Are we guessing the total number of fish or the total number of TARGETED Fish?

Big fish will be 38.5lbs. Total number of fish 14, with 9 over 30 lbs.

I too am going on a big fish quest this weekend. Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon & Tues. I might see ya all - though I will be hitting a single area the entire time.

If ya'll stick to hunting the big girls, 8 fish and 43lbs. If you visit some of the good waters (not strictly trophy water) I would say 23 fish and 32lbs. If only one choice, 8 and 43.

I did notice 14 fish had been guessed twice and 34lbs had been guessed twice.

Not selling you short but 3 trophy fish in a single day is a GREAT day. Therefore I say 9 fish - all over 22 lbs.

Don't skimp on me at put out 7 inch gizzards though... Laughing

edit 1: oops - looks like 8,9,10 were picked before me so I guess my official guess would be 11.

edit 2: damn ez picked 11 - I give up. Hope you have "one of those days" 3 days in a row.

Aparently some guys aren't too good at reading directions? Maybe they'll edit their response. The weather is going to change for us, so it may have a positive effect on the feeding! Let's hope so!

I will go with 7, but hope you catch a lot more. 19 fish when your trophy fishing sounds to high.

Big fish 41.5lbs.

Best of luck to you guys!

RockyS is our quickie winner! And he was scarily close. We ended up with 9 fish from 12-27 lbs. I think we had a kicker on for a few minutes but she ended up around a snag. Eric couldn't do anything with it on 40 lb test.... Shocked
