The Take Me Fishing campaign's social networking site for boaters and anglers, which now boasts more than 100,000 members, was among the top 10 percent of all work entered that exhibits remarkable achievement.

"We are delighted to be recognized as a Webby honoree for the third year in a row," RBFF president and CEO Frank Peterson said in a statement. "TakeMeFishing.org and Fishington continue to serve as important vehicles for providing boaters and anglers of all ages and experience levels with 'how to' and 'where to' information to help them successfully plan for a day on the water."

The Webby Awards received nearly 10,000 entries from all 50 states and more than 60 countries.
