Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) July 15, 2012
Carl’s Van Rental is now a sponsor of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s newest program, the Black Bass Management Plan. Starting in October of this year the Black Bass Management Plan will begin their new TrophyCatch program, a friendly competition in order to help raise awareness of the freshwater bass that call Florida their home.
Florida has come to be known as the “fishing capital of the world” and as far as freshwater fishing goes, it lives up to its namesake. The state has more than 7,500 lakes along with countless creeks, rivers, and canals that are home to the world-renowned largemouth black bass. The TrophyCatch is a catch-and-release competition for anglers and Florida residents that is intended to promote ecological, social, and economic values that are important to everyone who supports conservation.
TrophyCatch will help ensure that Florida is the undisputed “Bass Fishing Capital of the World” by using a record-keeping system of trophy bass catches across the state of Florida. Members of the Black Bass Management Plan will verify and document the catches by traveling throughout the state in a van rental donated by Carl’s Van Rentals.
Carl’s Van Rentals is located in the heart of bass country in the Kissimmee chain of lakes and is a proud sponsor of this exciting new program. Carl’s Van Rentals has donated one of its first-class van rentals to the Black Bass Management Plan, which will be used by the project coordinator. The vehicle not only provides the project coordinator with transportation, but it also saves the FWC money, while building partnerships for private and public businesses across the state that are working together to accomplish a common goal.
All resident and visiting anglers who catch-and-release a bass over eight pounds will be eligible to earn entry into one of three club categories: the Lunker Club, the Trophy Club and the Hall of Fame Club. When the anglers are invited to join these clubs they will receive a number of prizes, including a framed TrophyCatch certificate and discounted replica wall mounts.
Join Carl’s Van Rental and help support the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission this October by participating in the statewide catch-and-release bass fishing program, TrophyCatch.
