Winners of the 2016 Winter Giveaway!
by: Tom McInerney , Colorado 1/4/2017
I hope you've all had a wonderful start to 2017. I'm going to shamelessly use this chance to say that our second kiddo is due mid-July! So while I certainly resolve to fish more, I'm going to stay realistic. I'll also use this chance to give some advice: Fish. Fish early and fish often. You never know when your chances will become rarer and you'll need to catch hogs when you can :-)
Back to the Winter Giveaway. Winning members are below. Congratulations! You will be receiving emails soon and prizes should be mailed in the next week. If your nickname is below and you've not heard from me or the prize sponsor by Friday, please email me
Congrats to every member that won and a huge thank you to our prize sponsors. Also thank you to all of our members, skippers, bloggers, and editors that support FishExplorer.com in one way or another and making this year's Winter Giveaway a big success.

Sweet. Thanks Tom for all your efforts in keeping this resource valuable to all of us to contribute to and utilize. Congrats on getting new kid. Don't worry, won't be long and they will be ready to be on the water and ice with you and momma will be begging you to get them out of her hair. First time since I joined 7 years ago I have seen my name on the list. Yippie. Congrats to all the winners and thanks to all those sponsors.

Congratulations to the winners! One of these years I'm going to win me a fishing trip! I always have fun trying to keep up on my entries and not miss any. This year I think I missed 5..... Always due to me being out fishing and forgetting.
