KANSAS PRODUCING WINNERS IN CABELA’S FISHING PROMOTION
Fourteen tagged fish worth $200-$300 caught in Kansas so far
PRATT — Cabela’s and Wanna Go Fishing TV have tagged hundreds of fish in lakes near select Cabela’s retail stores, including several in Kansas, and as of mid-June, 14 of these fish have been caught in the Sunflower State.
While Cabela’s has not released the last names of winners yet, first names of anglers and the reservoirs where they have caught tagged fish include Elijah R., Kanopolis; Ron M., Cheney; Ralph A., Kanopolis; Bruce W., Glen Elder; Donnie A., El Dorado; Wade J., Glen Elder; Robert H., Kanopolis; Jeff H., Glen Elder; Monte N., Kanopolis; Anh H., Cheney; Gary D., Kanopolis; Tuan T., Cheney; Jerry P., Kanopolis; and Dennis H., Milford. These tagged fish have been worth various prizes worth $200 to $300.
Only anglers registered for the contest are eligible for prizes, but by catching the grand-prize tagged fish while using an Abu Garcia reel spooled with Berkley line, anglers can double the winnings. Catch the grand prize fish while sporting Costa sunglasses or Sperry Top-Sider shoes, and you can increase the prize package by $100,000. By using all of the equipment, and catching the grand-prize tagged fish, the package more than doubles from $1 million to $2.2 million. The 50th tag redeemed will win a $10,000 Cabela’s shopping spree that can be redeemed in a store or online.
Full contest details are available at www.cabelas.com/fishformillions or at any Cabela’s retail store. Anglers need to pre-register on the website and hit their local lakes between May 14 and July 14 for their chance at millions.
Tagged fish have been released in Milford, Glen Elder, Cheney, Cedar Bluff, Hillsdale, Clinton, Kanopolis, and El Dorado reservoirs. All prize winners will be announced online after July 14.
