With more than 400 entries to date, determining our first monthly winner for THE BIG YEAR contest came down to an ultraclose race.
Shutting the door on the month of May, Joe Petrow was the man with the most varied mixbag—edging out his closest competitors with 15 IGFA-verified species. Joe’s fish images spanned Colorado, Texas, and Florida, and included: tiger trout, black and white crappie, rainbow, sunfish, bluegill, channel cat, largemouth bass, speckled trout, blue runner, grass carp, ladyfish, and more.
Congrats, Joe. And a big shoutout to everyone for your stellar submissions. Keep up the killer work… and stamina. More winners to be announced soon.
