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.
