Have you been out on the water lately? 

Each year, we stock lakes, rivers and streams with millions of bass, trout and other species. With so many fish in our waters, don’t miss out on all Georgia has to offer. To help you make the most of your time, here are a few helpful links from the Georgia Wildlife Resources Division:

Your first step to a great day of fishing is to buy a license. If you’ve already purchased one, thank you! If you haven’t yet, please know that your license is an investment in Georgia’s fisheries. For every licensed angler, Georgia receives federal Sport Fish Restoration funds to manage and enhance fish habitat and improve access to fishing.

Plus, through Georgia’s partnership with the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation, Shakespeare is offering aspecial thank you to all licensed anglers (see below). The promotion is good now through August 31, 2012.

Now Go Fish!
