IGFA Slam and Trophy Clubs

The IGFA Trophy Clubs are the only clubs which require that the catch be weighed. They are the 10 lb Bass, 10 lb Bonefish and 25 lb Snook Clubs, 30 lb Muskellunge and 50 lb Dolphinfish Clubs. An angler that catches that species weighing at least that much is eligible for the club. The fish may be weighed in the boat on a certified scale and released to make it easier for the angler to qualify their catches without killing the fish. All Trophy Clubs require a $50 (US) application fee. Download a Trophy Fish Club application

The Royal Slam Clubs were started to honor a lifetime of fishing for a particular species. The angler must catch all of the species in that particular club in order to qualify. The different Royal Slam Clubs are for Billfish, Bass, Salmon, Tuna, Trout and Shark. Download a Royal Slam Club application.
