The contest, held by World Fishing Network (WFN) began on March 1 and communities from across the nation have entered, all hoping to be named the Ultimate Fishing Town.

The winning town will receive $25,000 to use toward fishing-related causes and a 30-minute television show about their town on World Fishing Network, along with other prizes.

Bainbridge needs the community’s help to win the title. Let’s all join together so Bainbridge can be recognized as the premiere fishing spot in the United States.

Public voting began on April 12. There will be two rounds of voting.

First, we will compete regionally against North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi. The top two vote-getters from our region will move on to the final round, which begins on May 10.

If we are not one of the top two vote getters, we still have a chance to make it to the final round. WFN will choose six wild card communities based on originality, persuasiveness, energy and the nature of the community organization.

Bainbridge is the Ultimate Fishing Town and it’s time to prove it to the nation!
