Anglers compete in 24-hour fishing marathon

Anglers from eight states and Canada took part Sept. 10-11 in the Recycled Fish 24 Hour Fish-A-Thon, presented by BoatU.S. Angler.

"The 24 Hour Fish-A-Thon created a grassroots network of anglers from across North America talking about the issues facing their home waters," said Teeg Stouffer, executive director of Recycled Fish, in a statement. "Anglers, our partners and hundreds of donors showed how important clean, healthy water is to all of us through this event."

In addition to raising awareness for the problems facing our waters and raising money to help solve those problems through angler education, teams were competing for prizes.

Team Longboat, which included Aaron Scott of Arkansas, and Brian Wise and Kyle Kosovich of Missouri, were the fundraising leaders, bringing in $1,253. They won an all-expenses-paid trip to Spring Bay Resort on Lake Vermillion, Minn., courtesy of BoatU.S. Angler.

Funds raised will be used to support angler education initiatives through Recycled Fish.
