124.1-pound bluefin is top fish in early going
Getting into the 10-week Challenge is a no-brainer at

We’re into week two of the inaugural WON Big Fish Challenge and things are starting to really heat up. A 124.1-pound bluefin is currently the biggest catch posted so far in the Challenge, but the big blues — and now yellowfin — are still out there and ripe for the picking.

THIS 124.1-POUND bluefin caught last week by Cori Husband of San Juan Capistrano is currently the top fish to be weighed in the WON Big Fish Challenge.

Entering the Challenge is an absolute no-brainer. You’re already going to be fishing this summer — or at least you should be — so why not throw your hat in the ring for a shot at one of six monster grand champion prize packages with weekly winners each and every week of the event. It’s cheap, easy, and you can fish whenever and however often you’d like. A true win-win situation.

Getting in the Challenge is about as user-friendly as it gets:

1) Just log onto and click on the “Enter Big Fish Challenge” tab.

2) Select your target species and add them to your shopping cart for just $10 each, or $40 to go all-in for all six available species (tuna, yellowtail, white seabass, dorado, halibut and lingcod).

3) Enter your information, create a username and password, check out and pay your entry fee and you’re in — it really is that easy.

4) Then simply go fishing!

5) Bring a big fish over the rail? Take it to one of the 10 official weigh stations for the event and have it weighed and get a good photo of your catch with an official weigh board.

6) Upload your photo and catch information to

7) That’s it. You’re done until the next week’s competition or your next big fish. Just watch the leaderboard and hope your fish can hold on to win.

It should continue to be one heck of a saltwater season. Happy hunting!
