There's a certain thing about the smells and the sounds of lapping water, the way the sun dapples the land...then, the quick thrill of adrenaline, as you get in the action! 


In that moment, we experience something so cool that we feel compelled to share it with our friends and anyone who will listen.  And guess what??  It might have nothing to do with the fish itself ...


That is what drives TruFishing. 


To provide the world with a platform where people can share their fishing experiences through contests from organizations that they trust and support.


At TruFishing, we provide a fun interactive way to join others in expressing the enjoyment of the outdoors.  Join a variety of contests and be sure to check back regularly, as we continue to expand our platform to help you show the world how it’s done.


We provide environmentally responsible fishing contests that adhere to best practices in keeping our wildlife sustainable. 

We are proud signatories of:
