Network holds vote for top fishing town

The polls are officially open for anglers from across the country to cast their vote for the World Fishing Network's Ultimate Fishing Town USA.

The winning town will earn a $25,000 community donation, WaveSpin Reels and a feature on their town, airing on WFN.

For the last six weeks, WFN asked anglers to nominate what they believed to be America's Ultimate Fishing Town. Thousands of anglers responded by nominating more than 300 towns throughout the country.

Anglers can vote online as many as four times daily during designated voting blocks.

WFN has divided the country into seven voting regions; the first round of public voting continues through May 3. The top 20 towns, composed of the two entries with the highest vote totals from each of the seven regions, plus six "wild card" entrants selected by WFN, advance to the final round of voting from May 10-31.

The results will be announced in June at a ceremony in the winning community emceed by a WFN personality.

"We are overwhelmed with the dedication shown from fishing towns and are truly excited to see how the voting will unfold," said Shauna Gosevitz, senior director of marketing for WFN, in a statement. "It is now up to America to determine the Ultimate Fishing Town USA."
