2021 Leaders

Congratulations to all the Winners!

These are the largest fish recorded so far for 2021.

If you have a fish that beats any of these and is not displayed, please edit your fish under the "My Fish" tab at the top" and make sure both the length and weight is entered correctly. At a minimum the length is required. Additionally the image and GPS position of your catch must be set to public to score and rank your fish.

Final Winners (of game fish only) will receive free Winners Tshirts and Stickers with the Winners Logo (right) at the end of the year!
