Who doesn’t love a good story about catching “the big one” like our friend Cassandra did? Even people who aren’t anglers enjoy hearing a great yarn. And a lot of the time, they can be really funny stories about the fish they caught, a poignant moment with a family member, or maybe even about the “big one” that got away. To build some excitement around Salmon-A-Rama we are partnering with the organizers on a contest called Off the Hook, which will give our readers the opportunity to tell those tall tales. We’ll kick off the contest starting June 15. We’re hoping to reel you in… so start spawning some ideas and hatch a plan to share your story. Salmon-A-Rama is a nine-day fishing tournament that offers up plenty of prizes, entertainment, and plenty of opportunities for those fishing stories. Off the Hook winners — one from the under 18 crowd and one from the 18 and up categories — will win a fine catch of prizes. The person who catches the most votes in our story poll wins the prize. In the meantime we’re looking to snag a few advertisers. What you’ll get is an editable banner ad that will promote your business on the contest page. It’ll run from June 15-July 19. The cost is only $150 for exposure to a vast range of potential customers for your business. Interested? Contact Sherria Wine at salesatrce@gmail.com
