For Season 5 (Oct 1, 2016 -  Sep 30, 2017), everyone who registers in the TrophyCatch program is automatically included in a drawing for a Phoenix 819 Pro bass boat and trailer, powered by a 200 hp Mercury outboard and guided with a MotorGuide trolling motor and anchored with a Power-Pole. Every verified entry in TrophyCatch adds 10 extra chances to win. Five finalists will be randomly drawn after each season ends and a reverse draw will reveal the boat’s new owner.

To be eligible for any Florida Freshwater Angler Recognition Prizing, anglers must comply with all appropriate rules. Advance registration will help ensure you understand the rules, stay up-to-date with angler recognition program updates and have the proper equipment (scale, measuring tape and camera) to document your catch when you go fishing. Note: Neither the FWC nor the State of Florida endorse any individual company, and each company is solely responsible for their products/services and fulfillment of any offers. State laws prohibit false claims or fraud when claiming prizes. FWC employees, including OPS, are not eligible to win prizes other than posting pictures and certificate level recognition.
