Costa Sunglasses has joined Bass Pro Shops as key sponsors of the annual DNR Volunteer Angler Survey. At the end of the year, DNR will draw winners from the anglers who contribute feedback on their fishing activity. There will be at least one winner for each species in the surveys. The prizes include $50 Bass Pro Shops gift cards, Costa hats, Costa lens cleaners, Costa eyeglass retainers, and more.
To participate, an angler can simply log into the survey and fill in trip information with location, date, hours, number of anglers, method of fishing, and number of fish kept or released.
The survey seeks information on striped bass, summer flounder, yellow perch, bluefish, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, muskellunge, blue crabs, catfish, crappie, bluegill, pickerel, northern snakehead, American shad, hickory shad, and Maryland Artificial Reef fishing trips.
DNR recommends the Chesapeake Catch smart phone app as an effective personal fishing log. The program provides anglers a cloud-based fishing record, which they can later transfer to the DNR survey and be entered in the drawing.
