The Take Me Fishing campaign website won two Best of Industry Awards in the Web Marketing Association's 14th annual WebAwards Competition, the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation announced.

TakeMeFishing.org was honored as Best Leisure Website. In addition, the site's social network, Fishington - The Fishing & Boating Capital of the Internet, was recognized as Best Social Network Website.

"We are delighted to be recognized by the Web Marketing Association for the second year in a row," RBFF president and CEO Frank Peterson said in a statement.

Early next year, we're going to give visitors access right in the palm of their hands with a new mobile site."

More than 2,000 sites from 45 countries were judged in 96 industry categories during this year's competition.

Last year, TakeMeFishing.org received nearly 3 million unique visitors.
