SAN CLEMENTE — The Western
Outdoor News Big Bear Lake TroutfesT is a mere two weeks away — Oct. 1 and 2 —
and we’ve already hit the 600-angler mark. This event is shaping up to be full
by the time the ‘Fest rolls around, so get your entries in a.s.a.p. And it
should really come as no surprise since not only will a boat be given away, but
a Ford truck is also up for grabs.
The boat will be a 15-foot
Klamath Advantage S outfitted with a Mercury outboard, and one lucky raffle
ticket holder is guaranteed to go home with the rig.
Klamath Boats has long
focused on designing and building crafts catering to the serious
fisherman/woman. Their rigs are simple, sturdy and effective for chasing an
array of both fresh and saltwater game fish. Name your species and Klamath
certainly has a boat with you in mind.
For the trout angler,
however, few rigs can compare to the 15 Advantage S.
The Ford truck, however, will
not be a raffle prize, but rather a tagged fish award.
At this year’s 2011 Western
Outdoor News Big Bear Lake TroutfesT, Oct. 1 and 2, the Ford Dealers of
Southern California are sponsoring the TroutfesT tagged fish program with a
2011 Ford F-150 Super Crew XLT 4X2 valued at $30,000.
In addition to the tagged
fish valued at 30 grand, there will be hundreds of additional tagged trout
The tagged fish worth the
Ford truck will pay out only if caught during official contest hours on
Saturday, Oct. 1st.
Thanks in part to the efforts
of the Ford Dealers of Southern California, and YUM Bait Company, these fish
will be randomly and equi-distantly distributed throughout the waters of Big
Bear Lake prior to the tournament.
Each contestant will receive
official tagged fish rules in their check-in packet, which can be obtained
during the Friday check-in Sept. 30th at the Big Bear Municipal Water District.
There will also be tens of thousands of dollars in other cash and
prizes at stake, trophies and prizes for adults big fish winners( men
and women's division), kids ( both boys and girls ), and the Big Bear
community will as always role out the red carpet for all the WON
