PURCHASE, N.Y., March 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- MTN DEW® is casting its line to usher in the 2021 fishing season by challenging DEW Nation to "Hook the Big One Golden Can Game" by catching one of fifty (50) specially marked Golden Fishing Cans in select outdoor-themed MTN DEW 12 pack cases for the chance to win epic fishing prizes and experiences, including 2021 Phoenix Bass boats and a virtual meet and greet with Pro Bass Angler Gerald Swindle. On the water, MTN DEW is giving a boost to both experienced and novice anglers by introducing DEW Lost Lure insurance by providing $25 DICK'S Sporting Goods gift cards to purchase new lures.
"Hook the Big One" deepens the MTN DEW brand's commitment to anglers and outdoor enthusiasts by providing consumers with the game-changing charge they need to Get Out and Do, removing barriers to enjoy the great outdoors and pursue their passions all season long.

"Through "Hook the Big One", we're charging the outdoor experiences of our most dedicated fans with epic prizes and removing small barriers that prevent them from pursuing their passions and doing what they love."
As MTN DEW fuels fans' love for the outdoors, the brand is also backing those who serve our country and local communities with a $20,000 donation to Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, a non-profit organization dedicated to healing disabled veterans through the sport of fly fishing and the joy of the outdoors.
