Fish & Boat Commission To Sponsor Fish PA! Kayak Giveaway

The Fish and Boat Commission has partnered with Bass Pro Shops in Harrisburg to sponsor a giveaway that includes a Penn State themed fishing kayak, camping equipment, and a rod/reel combo, all to be awarded to three lucky winners who enter either online or in person at one of two events.

There are three prizes to this unique giveaway, including:

-- An Ascend 10T sit-on-top kayak;

-- A camping package including a BPS Eclipse 6-Person Dome Tent, two BPS Eclipse 20 Degree rectangular sleeping bags, and a BPS 2 Mantle Propane Lantern; and

-- A BPS Pro Qualifier Reel/Jonny Morris Carbon Lite spinning combo.

All prizes were donated by Bass Pro Shops in Harrisburg.

The public can enter this giveaway by visiting from April 14 through May 12, or by entering in person at the PFBC booth/table at one of two following events:

-- Penn State Blue White football game, taking place at Beaver Stadium, University Park, PA on April 22; or

-- PFBC’s Family Fishing Festival at the Conewago Day Use Area in Gifford Pinchot State Park, York County, on May 6.

“This is an opportunity for us to partner with Bass Pro Shops and Penn State and promote fishing and boating opportunities to outdoor enthusiasts,” said Steve Kralik, Director of the PFBC Bureau of Outreach, Education and Marketing. “It also gives us a chance to remind people that the start of trout season is here and that great fishing and outdoor activities are upon us.”

“We particularly want to thank the Bass Pro Shops for donating the prizes,” he added. “Three lucky individuals are going to be launched into the outdoors, either fishing, camping or both, and will be well equipped to take advantage of Pennsylvania’s great opportunities.”

The winners will be notified after June 2. A date, time and location for the winner to pick up the kayak will be determined in the weeks after the winner is notified, and the other prizes will be mailed after they’ve been awarded.

No purchase is required and only one entry per qualifying adult will be accepted.
