Set your hook. Reel in the reward.
Advertising in the hook and line fishing regulations
Take the opportunity to place your advertisement/business message in the Guide to Wisconsin Hook and Line Fishing Regulations pamphlet. Think about it...almost 1.3 million anglers fish Wisconsin waters on average about 17 days a year, spending about $500 a trip. From those numbers, there should be a great opportunity to promote a product or distribute a message.
Wisconsin fishing by the numbers
Wisconsin receives nearly 1.5 billion dollars annually from direct expenditures for fishing trip-related equipment and almost 2.3 billion from fishing related economic activity. The fishing industry provides over 21,500 people with fishing related jobs. Wisconsin ranks No. 3 as a nonresident fishing destination.
Your message would be distributed directly to over 1100 license vendors, to DNR central, regional, and service center offices, to the Wisconsin Department of Tourism, to major sporting goods retailers and at major regional sport shows.
Supporting the sport
Your inclusion in the Guide to Wisconsin Hook and Line Fishing Regulations reduces printing and distribution costs and enables more funding to go directly back into Wisconsin’s fisheries program.
Your advertisement will be present for the entire fishing season. Pamphlet distribution begins early in the year to capitalize on the angler’s growing anticipation of the coming season. The regulation pamphlet is then kept and referred to throughout the year for season guidelines, bag and length limits.
