MADISON -- It's no secret that Wisconsin's fishes are cool, but which fish is the coolest? The "Wisconsin's Coolest Fish Contest" is underway and 64 fish are vying for the public's vote. The contest runs from April 20 through June 8. Every five days there will be a new bracket of contenders.
Casting votes is easy! Just head over to the DNR Facebook page (facebook.com\WIDNR), click the "Coolest Fish Contest" tab on the left hand side of the page and fill out the entry form. Votes can be cast once per day. One person will be randomly selected from all the entries to win a custom-made, wall-mount fish sculpture of the winner's choice. The winner and the winning fish species will be announced on June 9.
More information about the Coolest Fish contest and how to enter are available by searching the DNR website for "Coolest Fish."
