Cabela’s announced today the participating waters for “Fish for Millions,” a contest giving anglers a shot at as much as $2 million in cash and nearly $270,000 in additional prizes by catching tagged fish in select lakes across the country.
Cabela’s, along with Chevy and Ranger Boats, tagged fish in lakes across 21 states — Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Nebraska, Nevada, Oregon, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin — and nearly 100 bodies of water.
[highlight color=”eg. yellow, black”]Texas lakes included in the competition are Lake Fork, Lake Ray Roberts, Eagle Mountain Lake, Decker Lake, Calaveras Lake and Lake Lewisville.[/highlight]
One of the tagged fish could be worth $1 million. The grand prize will be doubled to $2 million if the grand-prize winner is a current user of the Cabela’s app or downloaded the Cabela’s Fish Recon app to their smartphone at least two days prior to catching the fish.
Contest prizes include two Ranger 520Z bass boats valued at $60,000 apiece; a Chevy Silverado valued at $55,000; $5,000 Cabela’s shopping sprees; Ultimate Fishing Gear packages valued at $2,500; Cabela’s Tournament ZX Tourney Trail fishing combos valued at $99.98; and Costa sunglasses valued at as much as $250.
Participants must pre-register before fishing. Winners of specific prizes will be announced throughout the contest and grand-prize winners will be announced after the promotion ends July 7.
Tagged species, which vary by state, include largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, spotted bass, white bass, black bass, walleye, perch, cutthroat trout, rainbow trout, brown trout, lake trout, striped bass, wiper, crappie, blue gill, panfish, channel cat, muskie and northern pike.
