    thanks all.

    to qualify for the pin and certificate for catch and release the bass largmouth must meet or exceed 19" in lenght and be caught on r&r.

    the channel cat must meet or exceed 28" and r&r and be released.

    i had pic's of both fish.

    to get a patch and certificate you keep the fish and channels must meet or exceed 14# and l/m bass 6#. i got the pins cause i released.

    GREAT JOB
    awards and pictures last a lot longer than FILLETS.here in florida we have
    a program much like the one you described.we have 28 fish listed that have
    to meet there specs to be able to receive the award.bad thing is i had lived
    down here for a year before i found out about it.i need 2 more large mouth
    bass to go to receive what they call a MASTER ANGLER award.keep it up and
    fill up the walls with memorys. :cool:

    GS-Rock, In Illinois it's listed in our yearly fishing hand out that can be picked up in any place that you can buy a license. Or, you can look it up on the Illinois DNR web site. That link is already posted in the Illinois section here on the site.

    yep. rays right. in the illinois fishing guide there right next to the state and world records on pg 39. there are 55 species that you can get awards for. even golden eye and skipjack. for a big fish award the fish is kept. it has to meet a qualifying weight. for a catch and releas like mine they meet only inches. i had pic's of the fish.

    i don't do much bass fishing so that was a cool thing. now a 28 inch channel. heck. i could have had several of these awards. be keeping a cam close from now on.

    also these are free. an application can be found on the web or picked up at any dnr office or in illinois call 217-782-6424. although the # i called several times and always got a machine and no call backs so i went to the dnr office thats conviently located right on the lake i fish. its the main HQ.

    im gonna take advantage of anything the state does free. i even got a nice letter of congrats from the recognizing both fish as one of the great catches in the 2005 calender year. pretty cool. :D
