Big Fish Challenge kicks off Friday at midnight!

Visit the event website to join the fray – sign up for one, or all six species

The time has arrived. The first-ever WON Big Fish Challenge presented by Yamaha lunges out of the starting gate Friday (June 24) at midnight, the first of 10 weeks of competition up and down the coast for the biggest saltwater game fish Southern California has to offer. With beastly bluefin right outside our backdoor, the timing couldn’t be better.

The event website, is up and running and it’s a breeze to enter the Challenge. Just click on the ‘Enter Big Fish Challenge’ tab on the home page and add each species ($10 per species) you want to fish for to your shopping cart, or go “all-in” for all six species for $40. The six eligible species are tuna, yellowtail, white seabass, dorado, lingcod and halibut, so take your pick or target ’em all!

Once you’ve created a user name and password and paid your entry fee, you’re good to go for the duration of the 10-week event. Submitting your catch is also a no-brainer. Just click on the “Submit a Fish Weight” icon in the upper right hand corner of the webpage and upload your photo (the higher resolution the better). Enter your fish weight and select your species, weigh-in location and the week of competition you caught the fish. Enter your full name, hometown, boat name, and the date and location the fish was caught or any other details you’d like to add about your catch, then click on the “Save” icon. That’s it, you’ve made your submission and are in the running for the Challenge!

Check back in at as often as you’d like to scope out the competition and all of each week’s catches to see how your fish stacks up. Weekly prize packages will be awarded for the biggest fish in each of the six species divisions, with grand champion prize packages worth $5,700 going out for the biggest of each species at the end of the 10-week Challenge.

So get in on the action from the get-go and secure your spot in the Big Fish Challenge before it kicks off this Friday. Let the games begin...
