2018 Multi-Species Challenge - Rules
Target new and exciting species this year! The member who catches the most variety wins (bragging rights)!

Fish big or fish small, take a clear picture of your catch, and then post it here. And if you're not sure what you caught, we're here to help.

Contest starts January 1, 2018. Post any fish caught on or after this date.
Contest end date is December 31, 2018.

To participate simply create a new thread in this forum titled:
[your username]'s 2018 OSF Multi-Species Challenge Entries

Species must be identified and stated with the full common name of the species (ie, Bluegill Sunfish instead of "sunfish", or Silver Redhorse instead of "redhorse sucker"). The Latin name is encouraged to be added as well.

•Entries must be submitted within the 2 weeks following the catch date (New for 2018!).
•All fish species (native, introduced, invasive, micro) count.
•Fishing locations restricted to Ontario ONLY.
•Entries should note the date caught and the Ontario Fisheries Management Zone number available here.
•All fish must be caught legally, within the open season of that species. Fish must be caught on hook and line only. NO snagging, bowfishing, or netting. Fish must be caught within waters open for the particular species (no sanctuaries or targeting fish that has year-round closures).
•No exceptions for incidental catches (that is, if you were fishing for Rainbow Trout during open Trout season and you caught a Bass when Bass season is still closed, you cannot count the Bass when it is caught out of season at that location).
•A species entry can only be counted when photographs clearly show identifying characteristics. A blurry picture will disqualify the species entry.
