Crestliner is gearing up for an online fishing competition that begins in May.

"This is our first online fishing competition," Crestliner marketing director Lori Kneeland said in a statement. "From May 2 to Aug. 15, we're hosting a three-month quest to trump other anglers' trophies on virtual leaderboards - with monthly prizes for the longest fish and a chance to win a new Crestliner boat."

Participants can sign up on the company's website to get the ruler that's required for measuring and photographing each catch. It's available while supplies last.

All varieties of walleye, pike, bass and crappie will be eligible for the contest, with participants using the official "Trumped" ruler to measure and photograph the catch before posting their photos online. On the 15th of each month, participants with the longest fish on each species leaderboard will get a prize and one player will win a new Crestliner boat in August.

Located in Little Falls, Minn., Crestliner is celebrating 65 years in business. The company traces its origins to the Aluminum Boat Co., which began in an airplane hangar in 1946.
