The Big Year - Leaderboard Update 5/8/18

Sean Gilthorpe's Specked Trout entry
Things are heating up!  The first week of May brought an increase in temperatures, as well as the fish activity, especially in saltwater!  All entries, except one, were caught in saltwater this week.  Joe Bandera entered a Rio Grande Cichlid,  Grady Johnson entered a Gulf Killifish, and Sean Gilthorpe entered a Gulf Killifish, Croaker, White Trout, and Speckled Trout.  This is a great time of year to pursue saltwater species across the Gulf Coast.  Here's the updated leaderboard as of 5/8/18:

Sean Gilthorpe's Croaker entry
Also, just as a reminder:  Please be sure to submit all CPR entries to nolaffc@gmail.com so we can track them more accurately.  Remember, it isn't the size of the fish that's important, it's the diversity of fish species that will determine the winner.The time of 1st entry will be the tie-breaker (in the event it is needed).  Most importantly, have fun!

The Big Year is off and running, full steam ahead!  I can't wait to see everyone's catches in the upcoming months.  If you haven't had the opportunity to pickup a stamped tournament ID card, please let either myself, A.J. Rosenbohm, or Jimmie Hyatt know so you can participate in The Big Year!  Please take advantage of this tournament, and use it as an opportunity to catch fishes you normally don't pursue within the FFI Gulf Coast Council region.
