Mustad, the world’s largest-selling fish hook brand, says there is still time to win the $1.4 million up for grabs in the company’s Hook a Million promotion. Mustad will deliver $1.4 million in cash to those lucky anglers who set new world and state records using a Mustad hook, but all anglers must register first.
Since the promotion started, there has been an amazing run of big fish caught by anglers who have not been registered in the promotion. So, don’t forget to go to the Mustad website and register before you head out fishing. Three remarkable catches in three months tell the story:
• World Class Yellowfin Tuna: In January, a 430-pound yellowfin tuna, the largest ever recorded, was caught on a Mustad Demon Perfect Circle hook near Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, by Ronnie Tegland. The fish was never officially weighed for an IGFA World Record because two anglers had touched the rod. And, Ronnie was not registered in the Hook A Million promotion.
• State Record Largemouth: In February, Arkansas angler Paul Crowder caught a 16-pound, 5-ounce largemouth bass to set an Arkansas state record. Paul was not registered and unfortunately, the fish was not taken legally and the state record was rescinded.
• State Record Walleye: Jim Zimmerman of Wisconsin surely wishes he had registered in the Mustad Hook a Million promotion. On March 11 he caught a 15.08-pound walleye that has been certified as a new Illinois State Record.
Registration in the Mustad Hook a Million promotion is FREE. To qualify for big cash awards, anglers must register in advance and simply catch the new record on any Mustad hook.
There’s still plenty of time to register. The promotion runs through September 30, 2012 and includes 10 of the country’s most popular fresh and saltwater game fish. These include Largemouth Bass, Walleye, Channel Catfish, White Crappie, Coho Salmon, Striped Bass, Kelp Bass (Calico Bass), Red Drum (Redfish), Spotted Seatrout (Speckled Trout) and Yellowfin Tuna.
The promotion is open to U.S. residents age 18 and over. To participate, anglers must use a Mustad hook and register only once at least 24 hours in advance of fishing.
