More than 25 anglers were recently recognized by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division with a 2013 angler award for reeling in an outstanding catch. The award program recognizes those who catch fish that meet or exceed a specific weight or length for that particular species.
“Georgia has outstanding fishing opportunities across the state and this program is just one way to get people excited about catching a great fish,” says John Biagi, chief of fisheries management. “Winners ranged from eight years old to 76 years young and they pulled in all types of species, including 47-pound blue catfish to a 2-pound, 4-ounce yellow perch.”
The Wildlife Resources Division presented 2013 angler award recipients with a certificate and a hat embroidered with the angler’s name and the species and weight of the fish caught.
Qualifications for angler awards include:
