With the 2021 game fishing season underway, anglers on the Chetek Chain of Lakes have an extra incentive to fish this spring and summer—Chetek’s Catch-and-Release Fishing Photo Contest. The fifth annual photo contest will have one weekly winner and will run from Wednesday, May 12, until Wednesday, Aug. 25.
The weekly winner will receive $20 in cash, $20 in Chamber Bucks or a $20 gift card, and will be featured in The Chetek Alert.
The first weekly winner of Chetek’s 2021 Catch-and-Release Fishing Photo Contest is the father-son duo of Denny Schilling, at left, and Dan Schilling, at right, who caught and released this 24-inch walleye on Ten Mile Lake on Sunday, May 2.
The photo contest promotes the catch-and-release aspect of fishing on the Chetek Chain, while encouraging photographers to take unique, clever and clear photos for submission.
To submit a photo, anglers will need to catch a fish, take a digital photo, release the fish and then email the photo to email@example.com.
