THE JIG IS UP
I was surprised by your Big Bass Contest, in which you offered a prize package worth $50,000 to the angler who catches the next world-record largemouth. First, I suspect that you must have compelling reasons to offer this prize now. Second, I dislike your attempt to rob a skilled angler of $1,000,000-plus of endorsements. You want to pay the winner 50 grand for a fish worth millions. A person might be better served by simply catching the world record and charging you $100,000 for an interview. They could then take $50,000 and hire an attorney, and still have the original $50,000 prize. If the next world record is caught this year, hopefully it will be by someone who wasn't duped by what was once a reputable magazine.
