The 2013 June Species Contest is upon us!

Let the wild rumpus begin!

To enter, go to and sign up. There is even a kids’ division. You have to have the button to participate. It has to be in the photos of the fish you catch. The winner is the one who catches the most species of fish (freshwater, must be species that get over a pound) in the month of June. It won’t be me, and I’m fine with that. Last year I got 27 species (8 of them new to my lifelist). I’m going to try to beat that this year.

I was lucky enough to get to design this year’s button:
