WFN and Partners Promote Fishing In Louisiana
WFN: World Fishing Network, the leading entertainment destination and digital resource for anglers throughout North America, has partnered with the Louisiana Charter Boat Association (LCBA) and the Louisiana Seafood Marketing and Promotions Board (LSMPB) on a new Angler?s Travel Guide website designed to promote Louisiana as one of the top fishing destinations in the United States.
The new Louisiana Angler?s Travel Guide, developed, hosted and maintained by World Fishing Network, can be found at www.worldfishingnetwork.com/louisiana. The site lets anglers plan all aspects of their trip, from researching top destinations and species information to getting the latest updates on news and tips along with the ability to book their charter with an LCBA captain, all in one place.
Created to protect and promote the development and preservation of the fishing guide industry in Louisiana, Louisiana Charter Boat Association (www.fishlcba.com and www.louisianasaltwater.com) certified captains are individuals who have proven to be properly licensed and insured for the activities that they participate in. The LCBA maintains an extensive list of charter boat captains who can ensure the fishing trip of a lifetime. The LSMPB (www.louisianaseafood.com) works to promote Louisiana seafood, which comprises one-third (1/3) of the domestic seafood consumed in the contiguous United States and is known around the world for taste, quality and variety.
?WFN Angler Travel Guides offer seamless connections between anglers looking for top fishing destinations throughout North America and the best guides and fishing spots that an area has to offer,? said managing director of digital media for World Fishing Network, Steve Delorme. ?WFN?s digital network not only provides anglers with useful resources like the Angler Travel Guides to help research, plan and get to these exciting spots; we also give them a one-stop gear site, www.AllFishingDeals.com, to make sure they have everything for their adventure and mobile apps like the WFN Fishing Log, which give them the ability to record every detail of every catch while they?re on the water.?
