TrophyCatch Florida Logo

TrophyCatch is an incentive-based conservation program designed for anglers who catch-and-release largemouth bass heavier than eight pounds, in Florida.

Our goals are:

  • Collect valid information through citizen-science about trophy bass to help the FWC better enhance, conserve and promote trophy bass fishing
  • Encourage catch-and-release of the biggest, oldest, most valuable bass
  • Excite anglers about Florida freshwater fishing encouraging them to purchase licenses and fish more resulting in benefits to anglers, fishing-related businesses, local communities and the fisheries by having more support and funding for conservation
  • Share information about fishing opportunities and destinations to make fishing more enjoyable

Anglers are encouraged to follow catch-and-release guidelines for these big bass and to document the catch through a photograph of the entire bass on a scale with the weight clearly legible. See RULES and PRIZES for details.
