The Big Fish Challenge (BFC) returns for 2021, with the same low entry fee of $10 per fish category you enter into. You can go “all in” and enter all 6 categories for $40.

Once you enter this summer-long fishing tournament you are eligible to win both weekly tackle prizes, and the grand prize of each category you enter. The grand prize winner in each of the 6 categories will win $500 in cash and almost $5,000 in cash, fishing tackle, fishing trips and other outdoor gear.

For 2021 we again will have the Bonito / Barracuda Division. These two species  open things up for many more inshore anglers, kayaks, and local sport fishing landing boats, in what many are predicting to be a cooler water year.

To enter the Big Fish Challenge go the the ENTER tab on the user menu above and select the species which you want to enter. The cost is $10 per fish, or you can go “All IN” for all 6 species for $40. Go through the shopping cart, use a credit card to pay and you are in. Each entrant needs to go through this process.

The contest covers ten full weeks, with weekly winners and overall winner for the biggest fish in each group. Sign-up can be done by clicking the enter tab at the top of the screen.
