Early Times Kentucky Whiskey is running a fishing promotion in which 25 tagged largemouth and spotted bass have been released in Jordan Lake. Twenty-five have also been released in Norman Lake near Charlotte.

One of the 50 fish carries a tag that gives anglers 21 and older a chance at winning $50,000.

To be eligible for a chance at the Grand Prize of $50,000, an angler must pass through two stages -- the semi-finals drawing and the Grand Prize drawing. Anglers who catch a tagged bass and register their tag number will automatically win an Early Times prize package and a spot in the semi-finals.

Early Times Kentucky Whiskey will then randomly select one semi-finalist from all the submitted tags in North Carolina to be eligible for the Grand Prize drawing. If the selected semi-finalist has registered a tag number that corresponds to the winning tag number, $50,000 will be awarded.

The promotions agency will randomly select the semi-finalist for the Grand Prize drawing in North Carolina at the end of the promotion. Early Times will announce any winners of the "Tagged Bass" promotion during the first two weeks of August.

The contest runs from July 1 to July 31, 2005

Tagged fish will be largemouth, smallmouth, striped, white, and Kentucky spotted bass.

You must be at least 21 years old to be eligible. You must have the necessary fishing license/permit to be eligible. Void where prohibited.

Potential winner(s) will be notified by phone and/or e-mail by August 15, 2005.

What is a Tag?

Tags are small pieces of plastic and are placed in the back of the fish just below the dorsal fin.

Fish tagging programs are used by fishery managers to assess fish populations. Conducted properly, tagging can yield a wealth of information including fish movements, migration patterns, and statistics such as birth rates, mortality rates, and harvest levels. This information can be vital to appropriate management leading to healthier fish stocks.
