The IGFA's Trophy Fish Clubs recognize individual trophy game fish catches for the eligible freshwater and saltwater species. To qualify for an IGFA Trophy Fish Club, the fish must meet either the required length or required weight necessary for each species. All Trophy FIsh Club applications require a photo of the angler and the fish. Club members receive a custom, hand-signed certificate, and are permanently listed online, and in IGFA's World Record Game Fishes book.
Lengths can be submitted in either centimeters or inches. Lengths are measured to the rear center edge of the tail. All measurements should be taken on a flat surface. Fish entered by weight must be weighed on a scale that has been certified within the past year. If the scale is not certified at the time of weighing the fish, it can be certified after the fish has been weighed. Fish can be weighed on a boat.
All catches, past and present, can be submitted for IGFA’s Trophy Fish Clubs as long as all of the necessary documentation can be provided. For more information on IGFA’s Slam &Trophy Fish Club Programs, please contact World Records Coordinator Jack Vitek at 954-924-4246 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
