Reel it in

Lincoln’s Landing fishing park is a multi-million dollar venue that brings together fishermen of all skill sets, from recreational to big-name tournaments.

According to ABC 3340, once it’s fully built, the park will include a swimming beach and Angler’s Pointe Resort, which is currently under construction alongside the park.

Several tournaments of all levels will take place at the park, with high school, college and even Bassmaster tournaments on the schedule. Tournaments have been planned as far out as 2024, bringing promised traffic to the city for years to come.

“Not only is it good for the residents, but there’s businesses coming in creating jobs, jobs create more revenue for the city, and the city is able to offer better services to their residents because of those jobs coming in.”
