I think with the snow lots of these lakes will be a little higher next year. Honestly, contests like this are more about going out and having a little fun more than getting fish. The spot is just convenient.
I would have to disagree with moving it. The spot they put it on has a few fish of all varietys and if they moved it to a better spot it would really hurt the late seaon bite in a lake i like to get some nice late season sunnies in. Maybe i'm just a little selfish but i agree that contests are not all about catching a ton of fish, more of getting together for some fun.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
