The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation's Take Me Fishing campaign is kicking off Catch A Boat 3.0, an online fishing tournament that includes a sweepstakes to win daily prizes or the grand prize boat, motor and trailer.

Starting now, boaters and anglers are invited to take part in TakeMeFishing.org's interactive game for a chance to reel in the grand-prize Stratos fishing boat, provided by the North American Fishing Club. The club is also offering players a free 30-day trial membership that includes a free issue of North American Fisherman.

Take Me Fishing also teamed with N'Gage, Rapala, West Marine, Plano, Gander Mountain and Ready2Fish for Catch A Boat 3.0. Each week, one sponsor will dole out daily prizes to those taking part in the game.

"With fishing season winding down in several parts of the country, we're happy to help anglers stay involved with our exciting online game," RBFF president and CEO Frank Peterson said in a statement. "The next best thing to actually heading out on the water, Catch A Boat is ideal for anyone interested in the sport. It provides users the knowledge to be successful and gives them the opportunity to reel in great prizes from a wide range of industry partners."

Catch A Boat will run for six weeks, concluding on Jan. 10.
