Go Fish Georgia Intiative & Georgia Bass Trail

Georgia Bass Trail

These tournament-style ramp facilities include multiple boat ramp lanes, extra capacity parking lots and weigh-in areas for tournaments. All 15 mega boat ramps improve access for local anglers and help communities attract major bass fishing tournaments. One more ramp is in the permitting or construction stages.

Local communities aid in the planning and development and then assume responsibility for the maintenance.

Communities market the ramps to local, regional and national fishing groups for tournaments and other events. It’s a win-win for the community as locals have full access for recreational boating and fishing year-round.

Go Fish Georgia Initiative

The Go Fish Georgia Initiative seeks to promote and enhance boating and fishing tourism and boost economic development. Leveraging public and private support, the initiative is improving access, quality and awareness of fishing in Georgia through:

  • Interactive education about Georgia’s diverse aquatic life, their natural habitats and the wise stewardship of these resources through the Go Fish Education Center in Perry
  • Quality fisheries supported by state-of-the-art indoor/outdoor warm water fish hatcheries
  • The Georgia Bass Trail tournament ramps
