Fishing Guide/Charter Boat Block Ad Program Specifics: When you advertise on the Fishing Reports Page with your Block ad (or Combo ads), several things are required – Read Below.
1. Monthly Fishing Reports Are Required… and submitted 1 x per month; you’ll receive a reminder for the due date via e-mail. Late reports will not be published, but you may send your report in early. Remember that you are writing a report for fishing info covers the entire month. For “Combo” Block Ads – your report should address both bay and deeper-water fishing for Rockport (as far north as Cedar Bayou), Port Aransas/St. Joe Island, Corpus Christi area (as far south as Baffin Bay) and all bays, channels and waterways in between.
2, Your Block Ad will not rotate upwards on the page unless you submit a monthly report by the deadline – via e-mail only. (Once you have contacted us, you will receive the e-mail address for fishing report submissions.) If your report is not received by the deadline, your block ad will remain near the bottom of the page to allow current reports to float to the top.
3. Monthly Home Page Article – One of the greatest benefits! As a Fishing Guide/Charter Boat Service advertiser you are eligible to run a home page article. You will receive a lead-in link with a clever title to peek our viewer’s interest and they are taken to a dedicated page that holds your title and article, your logo with link, clickable phone # so viewers can call you right then and there, content of 5 to 6 medium-size paragraphs, and 4 to 6 photos. Please remember to title your article and if you need any help, call us: 361-729-3710.
Important to Note: Articles must be fishing-oriented and enjoyable. Controversial topics will not run at our discretion.
4. Home page article space is selected via a random drawing held in early December every year. Each fishing captain’s name is drawn out of a hat and assigned a month at random. During the peak tourist and fishing season (March 1 – Sept 1), we may run more than one article for additional home apge exposure for our fishing and charter advertisers. They are the meat of our sites, however fishing guides and charter boat captains fish year-round – to include seasonal fishing (e.g. red snapper and flounder to some extent.) These specific keep the playing field level and fair to our fishing guide and charter boat captains.
5. PLEASE PROOF YOUR ARTICLE. We are not responsible for typos, incomplete sentences or wrong information.
