Mercury Outboards Presents


The BFC is back again for 2017, with the same low entry fee of $10 per species . This gets you into the entire ten weeks of the contest that features weekly prizes, and at the end of ten weeks the biggest fish in each category win $500 in cash, and and thousands of dollars in great prizes ! Click on the CASH & PRIZES tab above to see what the winners will get and you will see why this summer-long event is a must-enter event.


To enter the Big Fish Challenge go the the ENTER tab on the user menu above and select the species which you want to enter. The cost is $10 per fish, or you can go "All IN" for all 6 species for $40. Go through the shopping cart, entering your email address, log-in and password, use a credit card to pay and you are in. Each entrant needs to go through this process. REMEMBER YOUR LOGIN and PASSWORD as you will need it to submit your catch.

When it comes time to weigh your fish and sumit it into the BIG FISH CHALLEGE ( BFC ) you will need to go to an official weigh station, listed in the rules. Take a picture of your catch with both the scale and official BFC sign and weight shown as clearly as possible and submit it within 3 days of the catch. If you have the biggest fish for the week in one of the six species you win the weekly prize, and the biggest fish by species over all ten weeks win the grand prize. The contest runs from before the July 4th holiday weekend all the eay through the Memorial Day weekend and you can win multiple species categories each week and overall. So get out there and fish !
