Youth Angler's Log - Share Your Fishing Experience!


Fishing Club members who share their fishing experience on the Youth Angler's Log will be entered into a quarterly drawing for prizes.

In addition each month starting in September, one name from the club member post will be drawn and will receive an invitation to the Maryland Fishing Challenge Grand Awards Celebration on September 6, 2014 at Sandy Point Park for a chance to win one of several mentored fishing trips.

Monthly Drawings - As a continued effort to promote youth fishing opportunities, each month DNR will select at least one club member who submitted a post to the Youth Angler's Log to be part of the Youth Component of the 2014 Maryland Fishing Challenge (MFC). The member selected will be invited to attend the Maryland Fishing Challenge Finale' and win one of many donated fishing trips. The Finale' will be held on September 6, 2014 at Sandy Point Park in conjunction with the Maryland Seafood Festival.
