Counting the days

Our favorite time of year is just around the corner. You know what I’m talking about; Mogan Mania! We’re starting the party early this year because the Mogan Lounge hit 2,000 members. To kick off the celebration, we’re hosting a photo contest and giving away a bunch of great prizes. Check out these highlights and other news in this week’s Mogan Blog!

Say Cheese!
The MoganLounge reached a milestone last week and to celebrate reaching 2,000 members, we thought it would be fun to give away some free stuff. The Mogan Lounge Summer Photo Contest Series is only open to registered Lounge members so get signed up today! We'll have 2 rounds of judging and 2 winners will be chosen in each round. The Mogan Man will be pulling one winner for each series and the other winner will be photos with the most “cool” clicks by fellow Lounge members. Be sure to read ALL of the rules because pictures that have been altered in any way will be disqualified. We also want descriptions and stories to go along with the pictures. Capt. Blair is going to be looking for creativity, originality, clarity, composition and best Mogan Man impression, so, pull out all the “f” stops! Round 1 ends July 31st so you better hurry. Word!

Mogan Mania
Round 2 of the photo contest was strategically chosen so it would include the most awesome fanatical family fishing event of the year; Mogan Mania. Bring your cameras to RiverPalm Cottages for a weekend getaway with the AF crew. Whether you’re hauling in a Mogan snook from the rock pile or catching a buddy taking a nap under a tree after fishing all night, there’s always lots of photo ops at Mogan Mania. Join us August 17th-19th for the biggest bash of the summer. Make your reservations because the clock is ticking!

“Hot” Item
If you thought the summer heat was hot, get a load of the Mogan Series MirrOlures! We received reports from Dick’s that the Mogan Series MirrOlures are selling like hotcakes. These hard baits were exclusively designed by Capt. Blair Wiggins and are equipped with the surgically sharpened TroKar hooks. Mogan Series MirrOlures are sold exclusively at Dick’s Sporting Goods’ Florida locations.

Sink Your Claws In
This is your last chance to lock down a deal on the Minn Kota Talon. Minn Kota is offering a $100 cash rebate on the purchase of a NEW shallow water anchor before August 1st. If you’ve been on the fence about getting a Minn Kota Talon, now is the time to buy!

Mogan of the Week
Ralph Harmon from Tampa, FL is getting some face time on Facebook this week. After seeing his big black drum that he wrestled into what appeared to be a little john boat, we wanted to bring his mug over as our Mogan of the Week. Way to go, Ralph!

Is it too early to start packing for Mogan Mania?
