Temagami needs our help to claim the title of Ultimate Fishing Town.
The community has entered an online contest in hopes of winning the grand prize of $25,000.
Mike Drenth, a Temagami resident who is helping spearhead the contest, said the money would be used toward the community’s walleye restocking program.
He said the prize also includes a television feature on the World Fishing Network.
As of Monday at 11:30 a.m., Temagami was in third place with 11,287 votes. Currently in second place is Port Colborne with 13,663 votes and Hastings is in first place with 13,672 votes. “We’ve done really well, but without the help from our big brothers north and south of us there’s no way (we can win).”
The contest runs until the end of May. The public can vote up to four times per day. Each voting period runs for six hours and starts on the six and 12 hour marks. (taken from The Nugget)
