The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation’s Take Me Fishing campaign is asking boaters and anglers to cast their vote in America’s Top Family Fishing and Boating Spots Sweepstakes.

The sweepstakes was organized to increase awareness of family-friendly parks across the country and get more families on the water boating and fishing.

“Not knowing where to fish and boat is a big barrier for people who want to get out on the water for the first time,” RBFF president and CEO Frank Peterson said in a statement. “Identifying easily accessible locations where families can cast a line and make memories together helps get more people out on the water connecting with the outdoors. It’s even better when a location is approved by other anglers.”

The sweepstakes offers 250 preselected family-friendly parks from across the United States. Entrants will be asked to vote daily for the three parks they believe offer the best experience based on family amenities, location and the likeliness to catch a fish.

At the end of six weeks, the parks with the most votes will be placed on the list of America’s Top 100 Family Fishing and Boating Spots, which the RBFF will use to entice families and newcomers to try the sports during National Fishing and Boating Week, as well as throughout the summer.

Those who enter the sweepstakes will have a chance to win a weekly prize: a Get Started Fishing Kit, including a South Bend Spincast Combo Family Pack, an Eagle Claw Tackle Kit and a Take Me Fishing hat, tumbler, backpack and luggage tag.

One lucky grand prize winner will receive a memory-making experience from Take Me Fishing: a three-night, four-day stay for four at the Walt Disney World Resort, including a guided fishing excursion.
