    The criteria for the monthly selection is varied, it is not based upon just one qualification.

    The size or the quality of the fish is only one criteria and is not any more heavily weighted than any of the other many qualifications that we consider. A good picture with an small bluegill is just as likely to be selected as a picture with a 50lb flat or an 10lb walleye.

    As you saw, the entire OGF staff votes on each months selection from a group of nominees taken from the gallery.

    I hope I have addressed your question.

  9. On behalf of my dad who will soon have an account here, thank you very much. He was thrilled to learn of his accomplishment.

    It was a great picture, especially since there was several to choose from. He just looks so thrilled.'s tough to pick one, there are several really great ones, from most all species (especially some of mine :rolleyes: ) Since there's only going to be 12, it makes it tough, there's probably 12 good shots posted each week. ;)
    Everyone has a chance at it.

    now do the pictures have to be recent? That seems like the best way to do it. The angler of the month should not be based on a fish from a year ago.

    Oh, I think we need "pretty" fish too...joking man, joking !!! Here's the criteria as I see it. We have thousands of pictures & have to choose one a month... See??
    We have the random scroll pictures, that's good enough for me. All pictures end up on it sooner or later. It's not really a "contest" per se.
    Don't worry, be happy. *lol* Keep catching fish and post those pictures.
  13. I finally got around to putting down my fishing rod and switching on the computer.
    Thank you for choosing me to be your very first angler of the month.
    Mrfishohio says I look thrilled on the picture; I was. Thoroughly.
    Every fish does that to me, that's why I fish. I want to thank my son, TVFisherman, for the great photo. As some of you have said, it wasn't the most impressive smallie, but the setting sure was!
    I have some pics from seasons gone by of an eight lb. Largemouth. I could post them if anyone would like to see that. I even have a story about a world-record fish that we ATE!
    Tight lines, everyone.

    First off, Congrats on the Angler of the Month Award! Thats a really nice fish! It sounds like you had a great time catching it!

    Secondly, we would love to see the picture of the 8lb largemouth and the story of the world-record fish. Thats what we anglers do....Tell stories! :D

    Welome! We are glad you have joined us!
