It’s the Return of “Catch General Sumter!”
General Sumter and his boys are on the loose again. He and his gang of 99 other fish have been tagged and released into Lake Panasoffkee. Every fish in the gang has a bounty on his head, starting at $50 in cash. The General himself is worth $10,000!
Each fish has been tagged by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission with a special LIME GREEN tag. If you catch one of this year’s tagged fish, mail the LIME GREEN tag to 7257 CR 219 Wildwood, Florida 34785 to claim your prize. We don’t need the fish itself—just the tag—but if you take a picture of yourself with the fish and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, we’ll post it on our website and Facebook page.
The contest runs from May 1, 2015 – April 30, 2016. Make sure you have your fishing license and follow all the applicable laws. Read the official rules here.
