Picture Perfect: Capturing Your Big Catch
Now comes the most exciting part. Capturing your big catch!
Please remember to take two pictures and send them to our store email.
- The first picture should show the fish laying on the ground beside the ruler with its mouth closed. Please record the length of the fish in your email as it may be difficult to read the ruler from the photo.
- The second photo should feature the fish with you, the proud participant! Holding the fish is not mandatory.
Remember, photos must be sent by August 19th at 11:59 PM.
Prizes Galore: Rewarding Your Effort
Every participant gets a prize! Yes, you heard it right.
Moreover, trophies will be given to the winners in each division. And that’s not all! The grand prize winner will receive a replica poster photo mount of their fish provided by Big Catch Graphics.
All prizes can be collected on or after August 20.
Catch, Release, Repeat: A Sustainable Approach
Lastly, we encourage all participants to practice ‘catch and release’ for all caught fish. It’s a great way to respect and conserve our water resources.
