In the 10 years since Katrina and Rita, communities have been rebuilt, some smaller but smarter, with homes elevated and constructed to better weather the next big storm. Marinas, boat launches, tackle shops, and gas stations—some of which had to be rebuilt again after Gastav, Ike, and Isaac pounded and swamped our coast over the last seven years—are back and bustling.

“Hope burns always in the heart of a fisherman.” —Zane Grey

While the hearts of fishermen may not have changed much since 1919, when Grey wrote that, a lot about saltwater recreational fishing certainly has changed over the years. Today, saltwater anglers can go farther and faster in bigger boats with more advanced engines. Sophisticated electronics and navigation help put us on fish quicker and more reliably.

How do we modernize our federal fisheries management laws?

From now through November 23, share your photos with the hashtag #PublicLandsProud on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook. Every few weeks, there will be a new theme, like best fishing photos, bird dogs on public lands, and most beautiful scenery.

Guest judges (a few that you may know) will decide which photographer wins a pair of Costa Del Mar sunglasses (yep, we're giving away six pairs). We’ll also spread the love and re-post our favorite shots. Later this fall, one grand prize winner will receive our “Public Lands Prize Package,” a custom Yeti Tundra 45 cooler with the TRCP logo, packed full of goodies.

Show us why you're #PublicLandsProud!
