NASHVILLE, TN (TWRA) - The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is teaming with the Professional Anglers Association and Boat U.S. Foundation to sponsor a "Fish With A Pro" contest as part of the Wear It! Tennessee campaign.

Three lucky winners will be selected on Oct. 2 for the opportunity to fish with David Walker on Oct. 24 at Douglas Lake, Andy Morgan on Oct. 21-22 at Chickamauga Lake, and with Charlie Ingram on Nov. 16-19 at Pickwick Lake. The exact dates of the Chickamauga and Pickwick excursions will be determined. Deadline for entry is Sept. 30.

The contest will give the lucky winners the opportunity to experience a day of fishing with a professional angler. One or all of the fishing outings will be taped and produced for a future TWRA Wildcast as well.   Participants must be 18 years of age and possess a Tennessee fishing license. The winners must bring and wear a life jacket. Certain restrictions may apply. A tournament style inflatable jacket will be presented to the winners.
