Individuals 18 and older must catch a specially tagged trout or visit one of the AGFC’s four nature centers during the month of February and March to enter a drawing for a 16foot Alumacraft boat, a Diamond City trailer and a four-stroke, 15-horsepower Tohatsu outboard motor.
Maurice Jackson, Family and Community Fishing Program coordinator for the AGFC, says the promotion is all thanks to a partnership with Cycle and Marine Supercenter of Pine Bluff, Diamond City Trailers of Murfreesboro, Alumacraft Boats of Arkadelphia, and Tohatsu Motors of Tokyo, Japan.
