ATTENTION ALL PARTICIPANTS: To win the entire $200 Gift Certificate or any other prize, You must submit reasonable proof that you caught your fish in waters connected to the Little Egg Harbor to the Great Egg Harbor inlets. Since almost everyone carries a phone with a camera with them I suggest you immedialtey take a picture and send to me when the fish is first caught.

Any fish taken from the influence of the Oyster Creek Nuculear power plant before a "Cold Water Fish" will be entitled to 1/2 of the appropriate prize and the remainder will be awarded to the 1st "Cold Water Catch"

It is up to you to PROVE to me, Capt. David Showell, beyond a reasonable doubt that you did in fact catch a fish in the "Wild" environment. If you do not want to give away your Fishing Zone, then you will settle for half the prize.
