I came across a great quiz this weekend: testing your ability to spot a legit website vs. a phishing site. First off, what is a phishing site? It's a fraudulent site created to get a user's password, credit card info, social security and/or money. Most phishing attempts occur via email but they can also originate from a phone call or even a text message. Microsoft has some great info on phishing. 

It's very important that you can recognize a legit site vs. a phishing site. This quiz is a great starting point to test your knowledge!

Sidenote, real fishing should start picking up soon! Weather's cooling down, fish will start feeding for the coming winter. It was a slow summer for me. I'm not giving up my fishing spot though!
