Based on the prize criteria that put us at 2 winners that each get 4 spinners.
Here's the Random.org outcome.



Here's the entry Stack Sequence. I removed my entries and tagged the two winners. As you'll see, 1 blogger and 1 FE angler won the drawing. I'll be in touch to get your mailing information.

There were some comments and interest in Muskie spinners. If you want to make substitutions on spinner colors or get a bigger spinner, in exchange for the 4 smaller spinners, Check out the webstore and let me know in your email with address information - fishcreekspinners@gmail.com

Congrats to the winners. The next drawing is a customer appreciation drawing that will start on 2/15 through the end of the month. If you're an online customer by 2/15, expect an email invitation to enter.

For the runner ups and winners, here's an active 20% discount code - good thru Valentines Day - Pink214. If you're interested in entering the next drawing and aren't a current online customer, you still have thru Feb 14th to make an order, just sayin!

Time to launch the Fish Creek Spinners monthly Spinner giveaway drawing for 2012 and celebrate the Blog's first birthday! Drawing to be held 2/11/12 on the anniversary of my first post!


You've got thru 2/10/12 to signup for this one.

Depending on participation, this celebration can get 10 winning anglers - up to a dozen free spinners in their mailbox.


January 2012 Spinner candidates
Those are the drawing's spinner candidates. Depending on the number of contestants, you could win the leftmost top three (single winner) or you and nine other anglers could get a set of all of them (ten winners).

Comment to enter now or Read-on to find the Devil in the Details.

How it works


Enter as many times as you want - you cast more, you catch more fish.

  • I'll count up to 5 entries per angler.

Promote the drawing - better participation = more and better prizes

What's this mean to you?
  • More Comments = More Entries = Better Angler Odds
  • More Anglers = Better Prizes (more spinners) and more Winners

Catch that?

If you're feeling lucky - Spread the word. More anglers in drawing = more winners and more spinners for you. 

After reaching 24 anglers, each time the number of 'anglers' in the drawing exceeds the next multiple of twelve, another winner and spinner is added to the drawing. The more anglers that enter, the more winners and spinners in each winning set -  up to twelve spinners for 10 winning anglers.

Notice the 'different' clause in the distribution below.


Distribution  -

Win3 - 1 to 23 anglers - 3 spinners in the pool - 1 winner get 3 spinners
Win4 - 24 to 35 anglers - 8 spinners in the pool  - 2 'different' winners get 4 spinners
Win5 - 36 to 47 anglers - 15 spinners in the pool - 3 different winners get 5 spinners
Win6 - 48 to 59 anglers - 24 spinners in the pool - 4 different winners get 6 spinners
Win7 - 60 to 71 anglers - 35 spinners in the pool - 5 different winners get 7 spinners
Win8 - 72 to 83 anglers - 48 spinners in the pool - 6 different winners get 8 spinners
Win9 - 84 to 95 anglers - 63 spinners in the pool - 7 different winners get 9 spinners
Win10- 96 to 107 anglers - 80 spinners in the pool - 8 different winners get 10 spinners
Win11 - 108 to 119 anglers - 99 spinners in the pool - 9 different winners get 11 spinners
Win12 - 120  plus anglers - 120 spinners in the pool - 10 different winners get a dozen spinners

Drawings are just more fun - for me - with more participation.

How to Enter drawing

To enter just click the blog title and then enter a comment to the Comments section at the bottom of the post.

Each comment you enter (that includes unique identifying info) becomes an entry number in the 2/11/12 drawing.

Each comment increases your odds of Random.org choosing one of your numbered entries.

Some anglers choose identifying  information when they comment, others use Anonymous.

Anonymous entries - A lot of anglers enter comments using 'Anonymous'.

If you're one of this crew, you'll need to provide some form of unique data in your comments to be sure I track your entries accurately.  I need to be able to differentiate and compile comments by person before winners get drawn, so add something unique that lets me keep comments sorted and tracked. This also lets me contact you if you win. e.g. eventually I need to collect mailing information in order to mail the winning anglers their spinners.

Some anglers use forum & ID, blogger IDs, Google IDs. A type and ID should do it. Spammers parse  blogs looking for and collecting email addresses, in order to send you junk emails (you should see the comments sent to the blog).

Although posting an email works for our purpose, you may want to avoid it.


More Fine Print -

I'll use the Random.org website to pick the winners. But due to the opportunity for multiple entries per angler - plus the lucky nature of certain anglers (not naming names!). It's possible that I'll have to provide a level of oversight - in the spirit of fairness.

Assuming 'excellent' participation and Random.org picks a couple of your comment entry numbers, You win your first one, but you're 'over the limit' on any others and I'll pick the next non-winner in sequence to receive them - your new best friend forever. The results matrix will show any of these situations if they happen.

February's drawing will be a Customer appreciation drawing. If you're not an FCS customer, there's still time - think about it!

Here's a link to the Fish Creek Spinner web store if you want to look around and opt in for February

Whew, Happy New Year - Let's get this boat in the water!

Seanod from FE commenting again. I'm gonna try one of your 'fire ant' spinners tomorrow on the ice!

Sean Rosendahl said...

I feel like those spinners would attract me more than they would attract a fish, but I would to prove myself wrong.

Sean Rosendahl said...

Even if I don't win, I'm in need of some spinners for Spring coming up and the assorted packages seem give me a few options.

dneaster3 said...

I'm in... as duck season closes, trout season approacheth!

seanod from FE again. i fished the fire ant ice fishing and caught several keeper perch on it, jigging it about a foot off the bottom. i tipped it with a wax worm.

John Delaney said...

Least you didn't get skunked! I'm building some 1/4oz depth chargers/cherry bombs. Glow Red with Prop and prism eye. Look pretty good. A guy up in MN wanted something like them. So will have them ready soon.

argosgirl said...

Awesome contest! I hope more people stop by and enter.

argosgirl said...

I can't wait to try out those depth charge spinners! I posted this link on Twitter again so hopefully we'll get some more people over here :)

John Delaney said...

Saw you ordered the 6 assortment, I was going to send you some swag for your blog promotion. Do you want more of those or should I surprise you?

SeaBass said...

My son and I had a great time with our Hot Rod and Armadillos last season. We're chompin' at the bit to try out our soon to be new Fire Ant!

SeaBass said...

I became a believer in FCS products on a day when the only tiger muskies biting were biting on an FCS spinner. - ChrisNM from FE

Happy Birthday!

Danny Pizdetz said...

Interestingly enough, 2/11 is actually my birthday :)

Danny Pizdetz said...

Would love to see these get some use out on my kayak!

Danny Pizdetz said...

My normal fishing spot is West Wyandotte Lake near Kansas City.

Danny Pizdetz said...

I like spinners but I always seem to snag them on rocks, so I fish them deep, but I don't think I catch as much as I could if I fished them in shallows around weeds and rocks.

John Delaney said...

If you win, I can put weedless single hooks on some
as an option.

capnlee here. Picked up a 2 oz. FCS at the FE get together last Saturday. Muskies don't stand a chance now.

I'm curious... has anyone tried these out in the salt? They look like they'd be killer lures for agressive fish like blues and jacks.
