TrophyCatch 10000 Trophies

Congratulations for your participation in TrophyCatch! You have helped our program to reach the incredible milestone of over 10,000 approved trophy bass weighing 8 lbs. and greater being caught, documented and released! YOU are the reason we are celebrating this incredible achievement, and we thank you for your contribution to citizen-science and the conservation of Florida's largemouth bass fishery!

We encourage you to share your approved TrophyCatch submission or the graphic linked below anywhere on social media on June 15th using the #TenThousandTrophies hashtag!

Here are some additional facts about this achievement:

  • TrophyCatch has reached over 10,000 approved largemouth bass weighing 8 lbs. and greater for a total weight of 91,531 pounds!
  • TrophyCatch has 85,600 participants that support Florida’s premiere conservation program.
  • The largest catch so far into 8 seasons was caught in 2017 by Dominic Montalto with a 16 lbs. 12 oz. bass caught in a neighborhood pond in Lee County, FL.

That’s just a glimpse as to why Florida is the Bass Fishing Capital of the World! This program would not be possible without your contribution and the support of conservation partners like Bass Pro Shops and others!

Thank you for helping us to celebrate this huge milestone!
