Get Hooked

 

“Don't tell fish stories where the people know you; but particularly, don't tell them where they know the fish.” ~Mark Twain

National Fishing and Boating Week (June 2-10) is a great excuse to get out and enjoy some of America’s favorite outdoor activities.

Whether you’re a recreational angler, a skilled angler, or a greenhorn eager to experience the delight of your first catch, this national celebration of fishing and boating offers plenty of opportunities to get hooked with free fishing days and events across the country. Check out some of the events at Take Me Fishing.org.

To enjoy year-round fishing, many state fishing licenses are just a click awayThe fees for these licenses are essential to help preserve and protect fishing habitats and natural resources for generations to come. Our technology powers both online and in-store fishing license transactions for numerous states across the U.S.

Check out our very own “Fishin’ Lady,” Lynne Lange, pictured above. She caught that redfish at the J.D. Murphree Wildlife Management Area in Texas last March. She earned her fitting nickname while attending a wildlife commission meeting the other year. A shrimp boat captain asked Lynne if she was “a fishin’ lady,” and the nickname stuck.

Good fishing everyone!
