PRATT – If you’re 15 or younger and have caught a largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill or any species of catfish, you could win some new fishing gear through the first ever “Catch, Photo and Release” contest, which starts June 20. Fishing’s Future, the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, Cabela’s and KVOE Outdoors want to hear about your most memorable fishing adventure.

To enter, send a photo and story (200 words or less) of your catch to kvoeoutdoors@gmail.com. Entries can also be mailed to KVOE Outdoors CPR contest, PO Box 924, Emporia, KS 66801. All entries must contain a photo, story, the angler’s date of birth, phone number and a home mailing address.

The contest will run June 20, 2014 to August 22, 2014. Four major prize packages will be given away on August 29, including $50 Cabela's gift certificates. Four weekly winners will be randomly drawn to receive rod and reel combos, compliments of Cabela’s, and a fishing hat and assorted lures. All winners will be announced on the KVOE “What's in Outdoors” radio show each Friday. Multiple entries from each contestant are acceptable.
