Registration for Georgia GO Fish Bobberthon Fishing Tournament Begins Today

Ready, set…Go Fish!

Register today for the GO Fish Georgia Bobberthon fishing tournament and get ready to GO Fish for fun and prizes beginning April 16.

Beginning April 16 through June 11, 2011, the Dodge County Public Fishing Area will be stocked with up to 200 bream in anticipation of a new regional fishing tournament, called the Bobberthon. Bream will be tagged in the Dodge County PFA, Flat Creek PFA, Hugh Gillis PFA and Ocmulgee PFA.  Anglers can register at community vendors in order to participate in the tournament.  If an angler catches a tagged fish, they will return the tag to the vendor in which they registered.   All anglers that catch a tagged fish are guaranteed a prize and will be registered for the Grand Tournament. 

The Grand Bobberthon tournament will be held on June 25, 2011 at the Flat Creek Public Fishing Area, with the awards ceremony taking place at the GO Fish Center in Perry. At the Grand Tournament, the participating anglers can win additional prizes, including a Grand Prize 2 person fishing kayak, for the team with the heaviest 5 bream stringer.

Sponsored by the Department of Natural Resources and Georgia Department of Economic Development’s Tourism Product Development, and five local communities of Bleckley, Dodge, Houston, Laurens, and Pulaski Counties, the goal of the tournament is to increase the time families spend together enjoying the public fishing areas.  The Department of Natural Resources encourages children to register with an adult.

The registration locations for Eastman/Dodge County are: Butcher Block, Clay’s Automotive, Colony Bank, the Eastman-Dodge County Chamber of Commerce, Fat Boys Camo, Marketplace, and Pruett Air Conditioning.

For official rules and additional information, ??please see the official website of the GO Fish Georgia Bobberthon, www.GeorgiaBobberthon.com or call the Eastman-Dodge County Chamber of Commerce at 478-374-4723.
