Catch Certificates


Got a catch you’re proud of, but isn’t quite big enough for a record? Now you can commemorate it with an IGFA Catch Certificate. IGFA now offers certificates for both fresh and salt water species and getting one couldn’t be easier. Simply download an application - all that’s needed is the angler’s name, species, date of catch, place of catch and estimated weight. Each certificate features a beautiful selection of fresh or saltwater fish species, a gold embossed IGFA logo and President’s signature. At a price of $20 each, it’s a great way to venerate any catch.




IGFA understands that captains and guides play a major role in landing world record catches. In the past, we have had many anglers and captains requesting copies of the record certificates to include the name of the guide, but were unable to fulfill this request until now. For a nominal fee of $15, you can display your prowess at the helm, on the platform, or in the river by ordering a certificate to hang in your place of business or home.

To order your certificate, contact Jack Vitek at 954-924-4246 or email your request to along with the following information:
