We started FishExplorer in 2006. The Winter Giveaway started meagerly late that year, actually early 2007, with a giveaway of 30 ISE tickets. The next winter it blossomed into something a bit bigger, and in 2008 became more of what resembles our giveaway today. In that time we've given away almost 800 prizes.
The Winter Giveaway
started out as a way to thank you members for contributing to FishExplorer, and it remains that way today. So much is required to maintain such a vast resource for fishing information, I sincerely thank all of you who have contributed in any way over the past 13 years. I'm looking forward to the next 13.
So let's just get it started, shall we?! We have a lot of new quality prizes this year in the pool. We have some great fishing-specific clothing and accessories, a couple cool underwater cameras, a couple of great shore castable fishfinders, and more. You'll find it all on the prize pages! Enter now, enter as often as you can.
A big thank you to our prize sponsors of 2018!Showers Pass

YW! I love doing it. Lot of work, but totally worth it. HP I hope that pans out. Coyute, they're pretty cool pieces. At first I didn't think she'd do it - but she took it on and delivered!
