Pop Can Fishing Challenge

A couple of years ago I made a video on how to catch a fish using a pop can.  Now you can catch a fish with a pop can and possibly win a prize as well!  For the month of June, we are doing a pop-can fishing challenge.  The winner of this contest will receive a brand new Shakespeare Contender rod and reel combo.  You can find more details on the product by clicking the following link: http://amzn.to/1LRPIYP

This contest is open to U.S. residents excluding those in Alaska and Hawaii.  You must be 18 years of age or older to participate. If you are a parent or guardian, you may have your child catch the fish and enter the contest in your name on their behalf. Just make note of that fact in the email you send me in step #4.

On July 1 or shortly thereafter, a winner will be selected by random drawing out of those who have successfully completed the following steps:

  1. Make a pop can fishing rig.  My video that shows how to do it is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZhhxSr1R-4
  2. Catch a fish with the pop can rig.  The fish must be at least six inches long and be of any species.
  3. Upload a video showing the catch to YouTube.  The video must be family-friendly, and at the beginning of the video you must mention this contest and the name of my channel (you may refer to it as either Great Cove Media or Great Cove Adventure Films).  It would also be helpful to link to my contest video in the description of your video, but that is optional.
  4. Finally, send me an email at bernardotech@gmail.com and give me a link to the video you uploaded.  I must receive this email on or before June 30, 2015.

A few other notes:

  • If I get a large response and lots of participants, I will likely be adding prizes so more people can win.  If I do this, I’ll make you aware of that in updates throughout the contest period. These updates will be in the form of videos posted on my YouTube Channel.
  • If the product to be used as a prize becomes unavailable from Amazon by the end of the contest, a similar replacement will be selected and shipped to the winner instead.
  • You participate at your own risk. Realize that performing an overhand cast with a pop can rig means the hook is flying past your head at close range.  I recommend using an underhand or side-armed throw instead.
  • I have an old-fashioned definition of family-friendly.  If your video contains objectionable language, people in skimpy clothing, or anything else that makes me uncomfortable watching it with my children, it will be disqualified.
  • The video you create needs to conform with YouTube’s terms of use and community guidelines.

That’s it!  If you have questions, leave them below.
