There apparently is such a thing as National Catfish Month.

Have a good fish story and the photo to prove it? If so, you could win $100 worth of premium seafood at Aw Shucks and Big Shucks restaurants.

In honor of National Catfish Month (August), not only will the restaurant serve up its celebrated blackened catfish with rice and veggies for $9.99, but they also will host a fish photo contest.

Details: bring in a picture of a fish you have caught, and the most creative interpretations will win a $100 gift certificate at each location.  The contest will not be judged solely on length – if a catch is average in size, but it is placed in an over-the-top, amusing setting, it has the same chance as any other entry.  All photos must be clearly marked with the person’s name and telephone number and turned into any Aw/Big Shucks; the winners, one per location, will be selected at 8 p.m. on August 31.
