Fish the Georgia Bobberthon Express tournament for a chance at fun and prizes now through October 1! This tournament allows anglers five months to catch tagged bream in any of four public fishing areas and turn them in for a prize and a FREE pass to the Go Fish Education Center in Perry. At the end of the tournament, a random drawing of all anglers who caught a tagged fish will provide a chance to win one of four exciting grand prizes!
“Now in its third year, the Bobberthon keeps getting better!” says John Biagi, chief of Fisheries Management, Wildlife Resources Division, Georgia Department of Natural Resources. “Anglers will get a longer period of time this year to visit Georgia public fishing areas and catch some tagged fish, most importantly, they get to spend some quality time with family and friends.”
