• Welcome to the Boating & Fishing Community

    One of the best ways to learn more about fishing is from others! Here in the Take Me Fishing Boating & Fishing Community you can do just that. Read weekly blogs written by the pros, share the best fishing spots with fellow anglers on the Places to Boat and Fish Map, discuss how to fish with others in the forum, or find an event to attend with angling families.

    All anglers are invited to view posts, photos and hotspots, but to participate, you must be a member. Boating & Fishing Community members also receive a personalized e-newsletter with fishing and boating tips.

    • National Fishing and Boating Week takes place the first week of June and is the perfect time to get out and learn how to fish. Most states offer Free Fishing Days during this time, giving you a chance to explore some of the best fishing spots near you without a license.
    • One of the best parts about fishing, whether from shore or from a boat is sharing photos of your big catch! See photos from other anglers then add your own photo or video.
    • A great place to try fishing, or meet other anglers, consider attending an event like a fishing derby, boat show or how-to clinic. Search our nationwide database to find a boating or fishing event near you.
    • The boating and fishing community forum is a great place to ask other anglers questions about the best fishing spots or other topics. Read some of the ongoing threads or start your own.
