By semi-popular request, from the original trophy presentation in 1998 and then from this year's presentation.  The top ten fish by weight make up the scoring creel.  As with that other great trophy the winner's name (and winning creel) is added each year.  The plate you see on the original was moved to the new when it outgrew the space.  And...gotta love the Data photo bomb!

Trophy has been the subject of keen competition and much trash talk over the years.

As with any fishing trophy, particularly among familiars, there should be a terrific amount of ceremonial reverence, certainties, and backstabbing.  So glad this has settled out - and particularly along the banks of such a well-revered fishery as the Eleven Point River.

 I am fairly confident that my siblings ( AND parents) would have devolved into more serious settlement strategy over who had the most enjoyable river experience.

My work buddy and I resorted to dollar coins for each category of besting - not nearly so well organized.

glad you are having so much fun with this amazing treasure of a watershed !

wonderful to keep extending such a legacy !
