FLORIDA — The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has revealed all 10 freshwater locations across the state where pink-tagged bass worth big prizes are swimming right now.
To celebrate season 10 of the TrophyCatch program, FWC biologists tagged 10 trophy-sized largemouth bass with bright pink tags and their secret fishing locations have been divulged.
Each angler that catches and documents a pink-tagged bass will score a $5,000 gift card to Bass Pro Shops, $1,000 to shop at AFTCO, with a chance to win an additional $10,000!
Industry partners and fishing professionals including Shaw Grigsby and Kristine Fischer helped promote this unique opportunity with “hint” and “reveal” videos for the 10 mystery water locations over the past month. The final two locations we revealed yesterday.
“Our freshwater biologists tagged 10 huge bass across the state – just about everyone is within a day-trip’s distance to fish for one of these tagged bass from a boat, kayak or even the bank. Now comes the fun part for anglers!” said KP Clements, Director of FWC’s TrophyCatch program.
“Get out there and catch one! Tag, you’re it!”
Here are the 10 locations with tagged bass:
- Newnans Lake
