The San Diego Sportfishing Council is featuring Anglers' Legacy April 19 at its 30th annual Port of San Diego Day at the Docks Festival.

In partnership with West Marine and the Port of San Diego, the San Diego Sportfishing Council will encourage visitors to "Take the Pledge," a promise to introduce at least one newcomer to boating and fishing in the coming year.

Randy Jones, avid angler and former pitcher for the San Diego Padres, and fishing legend and lecturer Pete Haynes will both be there to lead the effort to collect Anglers' Legacy pledges. Those who sign up to become ambassadors will receive a trophy-fish poster to record details about their prize catch and an Anglers' Legacy decal.

Anglers' Legacy, a program aimed at increasing first-time fishing and boating experiences, has signed on more than 100,000 ambassadors nationwide since its inception in May 2006.
