2018 Leading Anglers

These are the largest fish recorded so far this year. If you have a fish that beats any of these and is not displayed, please edit your fish under "Your Gallery tab at the top" and make sure both the length and weight is entered correctly. At a minimum the length is required. Additionally the GPS position of your catch must be set to public to score your fish.

ATTENTION LEADERS: If you currently have a fish on this leader board please make sure you enter your correct mailing address and shirt size under "Settings" at the top. If the year closes, and your fish wins, you will receive a Special Edition GreatAnglers Winners T-shirt (one per angler) designating you as a 2018 Winner! Winner T-shirts are completely free, no cost, not even shipping! All counts and sizes need to be in by the end of January, 2019 as this is a special edition, one-time run only. Winners shirts will be mailed out by March 2019).

Thanks so much for being part of GreatAnglers! We look forward to seeing you again next year!

JeffYeah sorry for the poor pic. Was one of those guys that just wouldn't hold still. He was a lot more restless than most sharks I've handled.

JeffHey man I thought you looked familiar. I was fishing next to you this weekend. You guys did great!! Did you place in the tournament. After you left yesterday small stripers moved in pretty thick. (Jeff 09/24/2018 06:47am)
ColinHey! I was looking at you trying to figure out why you looked familiar too! It all makes sense now haha! So I placed 15 out of 207 with a 14 inch blue and a 15 inch blue. My dad placed 6th with a 14 , 15 , and 16 inch blue. Which took the prize for largest fish and then bluefish Calcutta. I gotta say you’re one dedicated fisher. My dad and I were talking about how u were out before the sun both days... and still there when we left! I learned an important lessons tho, don’t forget your rain jacket, or else you have to wear your moms HA! Next time you’re out there I’ll come say hi since I know it’s you! (Colin 09/24/2018 12:08pm)
JeffGood deal. Congrats on the tournament. You guys were smoking us. Come to find out we had bad bait. Once we switched to bait from another shop we started catching. (Jeff 09/24/2018 13:23pm)
ColinThank you man! Next time I’m down I’ll see if you’re around maybe we can do some fishing together! Where was the bait from, so I know where to avoid getting it at HAHA! (Colin 09/24/2018 23:21pm)

Captain Steve's Bait & TackleCongratulations to Craig Sheaffer who won our annual Fall Surf Tournament with this 26 inch 6 pound citation speckled trout. It was tough it there but his persistence paid off. Congrats Craig. Thanks for all those who entered we had another great time with friends. The fishing was tough but great memories we made. The dinner on Saturday was a huge success with a lot of laughs and some great food. Plenty of stories told and some jokes. With Thanksgiving coming up we are very appreciative for everything we have.

Some fish names may be edited by GreatAnglers.com (GAC) in order to group them together to improve accuracy. Example: Striped Bass, Striper, Rockfish may all be renamed "Striped Bass".
