Bluegill Fishing Contest Hosted by Winding Creek Bait and Tackle

bluegill tourn 300HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (5/3/13) – Winding Creek Bait and Tackle, Madisonville’s premiere bait shop for local anglers, has announced a fishing contest with the potential for a sizeable prize.
 
Winding Creek Bait and Tackle recently held a Crappie fishing contest that went over quite well. Based on the amount of individuals that signed up for that contest, owner Barbara Wiles has decided that this contest, for the largest bluegill, will have a small entry fee with the prize based upon the amount collected.
 
“I wanted to give everyone the chance to get that 4th of July holiday in the tournament,” Barbara said. “As per request from my customers that entered the last Crappie Tournament, a $5.00 entry fee will be collected. At the end of the tournament all money collected will go to the winner whose fish weighs the most. There will be a one hundred dollar guarantee as a prize pot in case enough choose not to enter. Four hundred and fifty one people were registered for the Crappie contest. If everyone had paid an entry fee of 5.00 someone would have taken home a pot of $2255.00, and that is why my customers wanted to do it this way because they knew the pot would be much more.”
 
This contest began on May 1 and will run to July 4th.
 
As for the rules of the contest, they are as follow...
1) Anyone can enter, regardless of location.
2) Entry Fee must be paid before bluegills are caught.
3) Bluegills should be stored in a water-filled bucket, as only live Bluegill will be considered.
4) This contest does not include Hybrid Bluegill.
 
To register, visit Winding Creek Bait and Tackle at 1635 Eastview Drive in Madisonville, KY. Store hours are from 7 AM until 7 PM, seven days per week.
 
If you have any questions regarding this contest, contact Barbara Wiles at 270-825-9997.
