State Records and Slams

Brought to you by:


Congratulations to the following individuals who have qualified for new state fishing records and grand slam certificates! State records are administered by the “world record keepers,” the International Game Fish Association (IGFA) in Dania, Florida.
All-tackle records apply to fish caught on both conventional and fly tackle and catches must be made in accordance with IGFA rules. The Grand Slam Club celebrates the variety of Florida game fishes and the achievement of anglers catching a particular set of three species in one day. There is a different slam for each of the state’s four geographic regions, and you do not need to keep the fish to qualify.

For more information or to apply for a state record or grand slam, contact the FWC Division of Marine Fisheries Management by calling 850-488-6058, or visit our Web site
at Click on “Fishing.” Entries are free!
