Cabela’s® Announces the 2013 Fish for Millions Promotion

Competition begins May 4; grand prize could reach $2 million

SIDNEY, Neb. (April 15, 2013) – Cabela’s Incorporated, the World’s Foremost Outfitter® of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, announced today the 2013 Fish for Millions, a contest giving anglers a shot at up to $2 million in cash and nearly $275,000 in prizes by catching tagged fish in select lakes across the United States. The competition begins May 4.

Cabela’s, Ranger Boats and Chevy are tagging fish in more than 100 lakes across 22 states – Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Nebraska, Nevada, Oregon, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin – and every tagged fish caught will be a winner.

The premise is simple: catch specially tagged fish, and win prizes ranging from Cabela’s gift cards and products, one of two Ranger boats, a new Chevy truck or a cash prize up to $2 million. The contest formerly named Wanna Go Fishing for Millions? debuted in 2011.

“Cabela’s is proud to once again partner with each participating state to offer this year’s Fish for Millions competition,” said Matthew Kettler, Cabela’s Senior Retail Marketing Manager. “We hope the contest encourages anglers – novices and experts alike – to invite their family and friends fishing, and take a few casts for the next big prize.”

In 2012, 118 out of 1,000 winning fish were caught in Wanna Go Fishing for Millions? This year’s competition will see the number of tagged fish increase to 1,500, as well as an increase in prizes.

One of the tagged fish could be worth $1 million. The grand prize will be doubled to $2 million for participants who are current users of the Cabela’s shopping app, or who download the Cabela’s shopping app to their mobile device. The app must be downloaded at least two days prior to fishing.

Other prizes include two Ranger 520Z Bass Series Comanche boats and trailers with Evinrude outboard motors, valued at $60,000 each, a 2014 Chevy Silverado Crew cab, valued at $55,000, and more than $90,000 in gear from Cabela’s and Costa sunglasses.
