Angler Sites represented at Warriors on the Water. We gave out shirts and stickers to the soldiers and fished this first class event.
Starting today, every 10th member to sign up gets a free Angler Sites t-shirt. Once you sign-up, you must validate your account using the automated e-mail link. Once your Angler Sites account is verified, you will be assigned a member number which will qualify you for the free shirt. Every 10th member will be notified via e-mail that they have received a free t-shirt. T-shirts will be shipped out weekly via USPS after you provide us with your shipping address.
Spam and duplicate accounts will be deleted and do not count toward every 10th member.
Already a member and want a free t-shirt? Refer (10) friends who become Angler Sites members using our tell-a-friend referral form and we’ll send you a free shirt.
Angler Sites hits 100. Thanks to Ron Buffington (@rgbuffington) for being the 100th member and thanks to everyone who has signed up to help Angler Sites become the largest online fishing community in the world (one of our goals).

Angler Sites is sponsoring four North Carolina bass anglers for 2010. 3C Graphics did a great job helping design the custom vinyl boat decals. These 36″ decals will be proudly displayed on all four sponsored Ranger boats. Custom Ranger Cup jerseys from Tourney Shirts will be ready in a couple weeks and t-shirt gear is provided by Cafe Press.
If you see us on the water, let us know and we’ll send you a free bumper sticker by 3C Graphics.
We’ll post updates and pictures as the year unfolds.
Angler Sites launches the first “Angler Sites Pro” website for Elite Professional Angler, Dave Wolak.
The first thing you’ll notice about Dave’s new site is the custom design. This design was created by Van Murray and was applied as a custom theme. Using the Angler Sites dashboard, Dave can post new content to his site through his blog powered by Angler Sites and Wordpress. This allows Dave to post updates in real-time and edit page content instantly online.
Some other great features of Dave’s new site include:
- Use of custom domain name (ie: http://davewolak.com)
- Integrated blog
- Automatic post integration with Dave’s Facebook profile
- Facebook and Twitter integration
- Email enabled contact forms
- Sponsor management pages
- Integrated audio players
- Embedded YouTube video capability
If you are interested in a custom Angler Sites Pro Site, let us know.
Today, Angler Sites (http://anglersites.com) has officially launched. Thanks to everyone who has been testing and helped make it a successful launch.
Create your free angler profile and add your favorite fishing photo as your “Avatar”. Add stats and personal information by editing your “Public Profile”. Connect with friends by adding to your “Friends” list. Join a “Group” and communicate in the “Forums”.
For those looking to really market themselves or their group, create a “Blog”. These blogs are very powerful tools powered by Wordpress (the best web content management system available.) Create posts and pages using your own site “Dashboard”. Add images and files to the “Media” library. Create contact forms to help manage tournament registrations and post results using the built in table manager. As always, please contact us for free support to help get your site going.
Angler Sites is run by anglers in an effort to advance the sport of fishing. I personally have been working on the internet for my entire professional career. As the founder of Angler Sites, I’m an avid fisherman and have participated in local and regional bass fishing events including BASS and FLW sponsored tournaments. I ran The Reel Deal, a NC bass fishing club from 2001-2008. As a tournament director, I know how challenging it can be to manage events. Setting up a website is the best way to communicate with members, post a schedule, results and standings.
We will be working to evolve this system to better meet the needs to anglers and fishing groups. We will do our best to map out new features and let folks know when they will be available via our blog.
Thanks and enjoy!
