 ALEXANDRIA, Va., March 29, 2011 – Spring fishing season is here – and don’t forget the camera. Photos of your catch could win you a BoatUS Angler membership with basic on-the-water towing and roadside assistance, a $50 Visa gift card and a fishing “prize pack” filled with fishing and BoatUS Angler gear in the “Catch of the Month” prize drawings. In addition, winning photos will appear in BoatUS Angler Magazine as well as Tacklebox, a monthly fishing e-newsletter.


The contest, which kicks off April 1 and runs monthly through October, offers both freshwater and saltwater categories and is sponsored by BoatUS Angler, a program from the nation’s largest boat owners group that helps anglers spend more time on the water and less time worrying about breakdowns on the water or road.

In addition to the prize drawings, each month’s winner will be automatically entered to win the grand prize in November: an upgrade to unlimited on-the-water and on-the-road towing assistance, a $50 gift certificate from BoatNameGear, and a high-quality fish replica from Mount This! Fish Company that specializes in hand-painted fiberglass replicas. The full size mounts are hand airbrushed and can be displayed indoors or out.

BoatUS Angler is a membership program from the nation’s largest association of recreational boaters that offers services and helps protect the interests of boat-owning anglers
