RBFF promotes National Fishing & Boating Week

The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation is promoting National Fishing & Boating Week with an online movement designed to help families find one of the tens of thousands of places across the country to boat and fish.

RBFF is asking boaters and anglers of all ages and experience levels to visit TakeMeFishing.org, where they can plan and equip themselves for a day on the water, find free fishing days and locate events in their area.

Site visitors may also be eligible to win daily prizes from one of RBFF's sponsors - Dick's Sporting Goods, Humminbird, Plano, Rapala, Simms, West Marine and Zebco - or the grand prize of a Triumph boat with an Evinrude motor and EZ Loader trailer when they play the new interactive game, Catch A Boat. The Catch A Boat contest will go live at 12 p.m. CST June 4 and run for seven weeks.

"Catch A Boat is designed to help RBFF meet multiple goals including increased traffic to our Web site and a boost in the number of Anglers' Legacy Ambassadors and Discover Boating DVD requests," said Frank Peterson, RBFF president and CEO, in a statement. "We hope our stakeholders will leverage the national Take Me Fishing campaign, which is now in full swing, to help inspire participation among their members and customers."

National Fishing & Boating Week, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, will be held June 6-14.
