There’s a bounty for any fish caught using any Lucky Bug Lure products.
Rules and Regulations:
The first ever Best Fish Bounty Challenge is a competition to see who can catch the best fish on a Lucky Bug Lure pattern for anglers in Canada, young and old, from all walks of life. The challenge is to catch the best fish using a Lucky Bug Lure in the classic Bingo Bug pattern. Neither the size nor the colour of the lure matters. What does matter is the fish. Participants are encouraged to take either a still photo shot or a video of the fish, with the lure in the fish’s mouth and with the angler who caught it. We encourage responsible fishing so please follow all local rules and regulations. We also promote catch-and-release so please handle all fish carefully.
All photos will be reviewed and the best fish photo for each age group category will be awarded a grand prize. Besides bragging rights for the Best Fish Bounty Challenge winners there will be cash prizes awarded. The first age group category is the 12 and under group and that prize will be $500. The second age group is the 13 and older age group and that prize will be $1,000.
Participants are encouraged to submit more than one entry because all additional qualified photo entries submitted will be entered into a draw to win fantastic runner-up prizes. Runner-up prizes may include fishing gear, camping prizes and campground giveaways. All submissions will receive their entries and bios (if submitted) posted onto the Lucky Bug Lures website.
