SPECIAL EXCEPTIONS: "The Grampa Greg Claus"

I just got a call from Grampa Greg McNamara, the now famous angler (Top Hooker, Sunday nights at 10 p.m. Animal Planet) tried to use his new-found fame to bend the rules...

I'm kidding.

He's going to be away at a remote place for a period of 10 days and he won't have any way to download the TAG for the second half of the week. I'm going to send him next week's TAG by the end of this week and I will text him the RANDOM CHARACTERS so that he can write them in at the start of WEEK 5. I will gladly do this for anyone who is going to be away from a printer or internet access for the start of any Event Weekend. Just give me a few days notice, in case I don't have the TAG completed...

We'll keep tabs on Greg the same way we did with the few guys that went to Cutty last week, he will text in the inch totals once a day so I can keep the scores up to date and then we'll verify everything when the photos are sent in later.

Not many of you have been taking advantage of the video bonus points, which is fine and I understand why. But after watching a few of the videos that were recorded purely for documentation of the catch it occurred to me that this might be the best way to document all of your catches--especially if you fish at night.
You probably think I'm nuts for saying this but allow me to explain. I know what you're thinking, the quality of videos shot at night seems like it would be terrible, but if you get the camera within a few feet of the fish and use your light to illuminate the fish, tag and tape it comes out fine.. see the video attached to this post, courtesy of Sean Kearney of the Fish Pigs.
The benefit of recording your fish on video is two-fold, the biggest benefit being no camera flash. My good friend Zeno Hromin tells me he regularly fires off aimless shots on slow nights just to count the guys who come along to look at what the light show was all about! The second half of the video benefit is that there will be no questioning the validity of your catch, you can pan across the whole fish, showing the tape, get a shot of the tag, shine the camera and light into your squinting, sleep-deprived eyes and you've satisfied all of the requirements for entering a fish in a 15 second video clip. Not to mention, if you're smart about how you do it, you haven't drawn any more attention to yourself than someone changing plugs.

Plus it's hilarious for me to see you guys with the light in your eyes! lol
