Do I smell a skunk?

So I'm in the final stages of planning an early spring fishing trip with some friends to the famed Bighorn river in MT; home to thousands of fish per mile, mostly in the 17-20" category.  I was tasked with getting daily prizes for a number of competitions we will have.  The normal things go, like biggest fish, most fish daily, etc., but the best category is daily skunk prizes/punishments.  I had some fun over the past week thinking of good, funny, and possibly painful ideas for the people pathetic enough to fall into this bucket on the trip.  For those of you who don't know, if you can't catch a fish on the Bighorn, you may as well pack it in.

Some of the prizes/punishments are good natured and are meant to build the fishing skills of the sucker who gets them.  The others are meant as mean-hearted punishments because you deserve them!

The main purpose of this post is to make those who read it and who are going on the trip tremble in fear, but I will post in a month what my gifts were for those of you who are interested in doing the same in the future.
