“Fish Juice” Kid Wins Fin-Finder #KissYerFish16 Photo Contest
MOUNT JOY, PA — Fin-Finder has announced the winner of the 2016 Kiss Yer Fish Contest. Followers on Fin-Finder’s Facebook and Instagram pages were invited to share photos of themselves kissing a fish and tagging them #KissYerFish16. The winners received the 2016 Kiss Yer Fish Kit — a Fin-Finder Poseidon Bow and Splashlight Bowfishing Light worth $429.
In its second year, #KissYerFish had an uptick in entries as well as thousands who engaged with Fin-Finder’s page during the contest. Entries included fish kissers of all ages, down to a toddler with her pint-sized trophy.
Although there were many great entries, Dane Fennessey, 12, of Union, Missouri, stole the show! Fennessey won the hearts of Fin-Finder fans (while also disgusting many), sitting in a huge tub of Carp and giving one a decidedly sloppy kiss. He went above and beyond to win the contest, posting a video to the page in addition to his photo, and exclaimed “I’ve got fish juice down my pants… but I want that Poseidon bow!”
Runner-up Benjamin Armstrong of Union City, Tennessee, all but conceded the contest upon seeing Fennessey’s entry. “That’s dedication!,” Armstrong said, “I don’t think I wanna do the things it would take to beat this…haha.” Upon hearing results of the contest, he graciously added, “The kid that won definitely earned it for sure!!!”
