DNR Snakehead Drawing Clarification

Snakeheads

Annapolis, Md. (April 12, 2012) The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) would like to clarify the rules and prizes for the Second Annual Snakehead Contest. There are no cash rewards for catching and killing a snakehead. DNR will draw three names at random from the list of anglers who submit a photo of their snakehead catch to the DNR Anglers Log.

The three prizes are: one $200 gift certificate to Bass Pro Shops, one 2013 Maryland State Parks Pass and one 2013 Potomac River Fishing license provided by the Potomac River Fisheries Commission. The contest is open to recreational anglers only.

To enter, anglers must submit a photo of the snakehead they caught and killed on the Anglers Log at dnr.maryland.gov/fisheries/fishingreport/log.asp. Anglers do not need to bring their catch to a citation award center to win.

DNR will randomly draw from the submissions on November 30, 2012.
