Picture this—you are drifting down the river in your kayak, casually paddling along. Nice, right? Know what would make it better? Adding in a fishing license for a great day of action-packed angling! Need extra incentive? All new license customers between June 1 and July 31 will be entered to win one of two amazing guided fishing trips that include gear and accommodations!
“There is no shortage of great outdoor resources to visit in Georgia,” says Rusty Garrison, Director for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division. “From our amazing North Georgia mountains with cold trout streams, to middle Georgia’s mighty rivers, to the coast with saltwater species waiting on you to throw out a line, you are sure to only better enhance your outdoor experience by adding in a fishing license!”
The winning license holder will get to choose one of the following fabulous fishing opportunities:
- TROUT: gear, guide, accommodations
- BASS: gear, accommodations, and a guide with boat on the reservoir of your choice (such as Lanier, Carters, etc.)
- STRIPER: gear, accommodations, and a guide with boat on the river or reservoir of your choice (such as Lanier, Carters, etc.)
- WALLEYE: gear, accommodations, and a guide with boat on the North Georgia reservoir of your choice (such as Lanier, Carters, etc.)
- TARPON: gear, accommodations, and a guide with boat for saltwater fishing
The opportunity to win the Fishing Trip Giveaway is open to anyone that creates a new customer account and purchases any license (fishing, 1-day combo, hunting, Lands Pass, etc.). Account creation and license purchase must occur between midnight June 1 and midnight July 31. There will be drawings for two winners, one at the end of June, and the other at the end of July. Winners will be announced via the Georgia WRD social media channels, and contacted directly.
“One great way to grab an entry into this contest is to purchase a youth sportsman’s license for your child. Starting their customer account and purchasing this $15 license gives your 12–15-year-old sportsman’s license privileges through their 17th birthday—a $70 value—providing a fantastic advantage to your kid and a chance at winning an awesome trip as a terrific bonus!” said Garrison.
