Fish Records

Have you caught a fish and think that you might have a new state record? We've compiled an up-to-date listing of fishing records for each state. If you know of a record that isn't listed or is incorrect, please contact us.


I think I caught a record-breaker! What now?

  • To prevent loss of weight, don't clean or freeze the fish. Keep the fish cool - preferably on ice.
  • Take a picture of the fish.
  • Get the fish weighed as soon as possible on a certified scale (found in grocery or hardware stores, etc.) and witnessed by an observer. Get an affidavit from the store if no FWS official is present. Measure the length.
  • Contact the nearest FWS office to have the fish positively identified and to determine if it is a state record.
