Happy Birthday Something's Fishy!


CONTEST OFFICIALLY CLOSED 9/15/2011

In about two weeks the blog will have it's first birthday. I'm pretty surprised that it made it this long. I did it just to see what would happen and I must say , I'm glad I did. I've "met" some great people and a lot of very talented fishermen (and women) , artists and writers. I've also had a very positive response to what I write here and also to some of my pictures and video. It's been a very rewarding experience for me.

When I first started the blog , it was mainly a place for me to go more in depth about the why's and how's of some of the surf fishing questions I was answering on message boards. I didn't mind answering the questions , but it was easier to be able to post a link to something here on the blog rather than typing out the same tired replies every time the same question came up. It worked , but I soon found myself running out of things to say. That's when I started branching out and including more of my own fishing exploits and those of others. I've had a great deal of help along the way.

As my way of saying thanks to everyone who has helped out or read the blog , I'm having a giveaway / contest starting today and running until September 15 , 2011 at noon!

Prizes are as follows.

1st place : One 12" Star Crab Trap , One Filet/Bait knife kit , One filler spool of Suffix Elite Monofilament in  14 pound Hi-Vis Yellow , One filler spool of Suffix Siege Monofilament in 14 pound Neon Tangerine , One hand tied bottom fishing rig and One hand tied Fireball rig.

2nd & 3rd : One filler spool of Suffix Elite Monofilament in 14 pound Hi-Vis Yellow , One filler spool of Suffix Siege Monofilament in 14 pound Neon Tangerine , One hand tied bottom fishing rig and One hand tied Fireball rig.

The idea behind these prizes is to get you started fishing at the beach. While not fancy or sexy , this is the stuff I use. A tribute to the humble beginnings of Something's Fishy as a surf fishing how-to blog!

How to win : I'm going to make this easy , post a comment below saying " Happy Birthday Something's Fishy " for one entry. Post another comment below saying " I Want to Fish at the Beach " for a second entry. That's it!

How winners will be determined : Winners will be determined by a Random Number Generator after 12:00 pm on 9/15/11 and announced on the blog shortly thereafter. Reasonable efforts will be made to get shipping info from the winners , but if I have not heard from the winners by 9/20/11 prizes will be awarded to someone else.

Legal Stuff : Anyone found to have made multiple accounts to increase their odds of winning will be immediately disqualified. Maximum of two (2) entries per person.

Prizes are awarded AS IS. Something's Fishy will not be held responsible for damage incurred during shipping.

Use at your own risk. Something's Fishy will not be held responsible for any damages to persons or property that occur as a result of use or misuse of these prizes. (Be careful with the knives and hooks)

Follow local regulations. It will be the responsibility of the winners to ensure that they are following all local fishing regulations when using any of the prizes.

That's it. Let's get this party started!

Good luck!
