GA launches 5-month fishing tournament

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia officials are kicking off a five-month fishing tournament.

The Department of Natural Resources announced Tuesday that the "Bobberthon Express" tournament will run through Oct. 1.

Anglers get five months to catch tagged bream in any 4 of the designated fishing areas and turn in those fish for a prize.

The fishing areas include the Dodge County, Ocmulgee, Hugh Gillis and Flat Creek lakes. The tags on the fish are colored and marked "Bobberthon."
