Florida Saltwater Fishing
I Challenge You
Anyone who has given it a try knows that some days, fishing can be a challenge. That’s part of the fun, the lure you could say, pun intended. On the water is where memories are made and there’s nothing quite as rewarding as being able to go back home and tell your friends about the biggest fish you’ve ever seen.
I challenge you to take your fishing fun even further. Earn prizes and certificates for your efforts. I challenge you to Catch a Florida Memory and participate in any of our three exciting Saltwater Angler Recognition Programs: Saltwater Grand Slams, Saltwater Fish Life List, and Saltwater Reel Big Fish.
These programs are more than just a means to earn bragging rights though. They also expand fishing experiences for seasoned anglers, cultivate an interest in saltwater fishing, strengthen marine fisheries conservation ethics, and encourage anglers to target a diversity of species, thereby decreasing fishing pressure on any given species.
Learn more about each program by reading the article of this publication or visit CatchaFloridaMemory.com.
