Calling all fishermen! Georgia State Parks is having a statewide fishing challenge now through December 1, 2013. The Reelin’ In The Prizes Fishing Challenge includes 38 parks including everything from warm water streams to large lakes and salt water fishing. The goal? Catch fish, of course. Then snap a picture with your catch next to the Reelin’ In The Prizes measuring sign at one of those 38 fishing sites, and email or mail your photo in. You can post one photo per day, and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources will pick the winners. The prizes are perfect for you fishermen (and women!) out there: a Big Green Egg Grill, a $200 Bass Pro Shop gift certificate, or a Fishing Combo Rod & Reel Package by Shakespeare with a $50 Bass Pro Shop gift certificate. There are separate prizes for bass, trout and catfish, so get casting and reel in whatever you can!
