This year’s contest features more than $100,000 worth of prizes, including a new Ford F-150 4x4 as the grand prize.
One of the best things about the contest is that you don’t need to have a large fish to be a winner; many of last year’s winners had fish that weighed less than one pound.
In fact, the way the prize system works, even the participant in last place can walk away with a valuable prize – a pair of diamond earrings.
