New boating content was recently added to the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation's Take Me Fishing campaign Web site.
New features, including an interactive "Boat Explorer" tool, glossary, navigation and trip-planning resources, are now available on the site.
"Take Me Fishing is about capturing the excitement and the memories associated with boating and fishing and we want to inspire visitors to take action and help preserve the legacy of the sport for future generations," said Frank Peterson, RBFF president and CEO, in a statement.
Visitors to the site can:
- learn about all types of fishing boats and see what they look like
- download charts and use the trip planner to set a course
- learn how to be safe on the water and how to protect waterways with proper boat maintenance
- use interactive visuals to learn about types of hulls and engines, different parts of a boat, and trailering and launching a boat
Takemefishing.org has received 2.4 million unique visitors in the last year, up 129 percent from the same time last year and 243 percent from 2007, according to RBFF.
