How to Certify a State Record

  1. Fish must be caught on rod and line and must be hooked and played by only one person. (Except for unrestricted division, which recognizes fish species taken by legal means other than rod and reel such as bow and arrow, gig, spear, trotline, jugline, limbline, etc. These records must tie or exceed the weight of the existing rod and reel record.)
  2. Fish must be caught in accordance with Oklahoma fishing regulations.
  3. No fish caught from any hatchery or com­mer­cial put-and-take lake is eligible.
  4. Accredited or certified weight scales must be used to weigh the fish. Ac­cred­it­ed steel mea­sur­ing tapes must be used to measure the fish. The fish should be measured from tip of the snout to the end of the tail, with fish laid flat on a ruler, mouth closed and tail lobes pressed together, giving length of fish in inch­es. Measure the girth of the fish in inches around its widest point. Three witnesses, one of which must be an employee of the Wildlife Department, must witness the weighing and measuring of the fish and sign the af­fi­da­vit.
  5. The fish may be frozen, but must be in a thawed, natural, live-weight condition when approved by a Wildlife Department biologist or tech­ni­cian. Preserve the fish until you receive an official letter of verification from the director of the Wildlife Department.
  6. A clear photograph showing a close-up side view of the fish must accompany the completed fish affidavit form. All pho­to­graphs become the property of the Wildlife Department.
  7. The Wildlife Department reserves the right to collect fish scale, tissue or spine sam­ples to check fish identification and to refuse any questionable fish affidavit submitted. The affidavit must be sub­mit­ted within 30 days of the date the fish is caught.
  8. With the exception of grass carp, no restricted exotic species will be eligible for state record fish recognition.

Lake Record Fish Program

What is the biggest fish you’ve ever caught?

A 7-pound largemouth, a 2-pound crappie or a 45-pound blue catfish? While your fish may not have broken a state record, it could very possibly be the biggest fish ever caught out of your favorite lake. The Lake Record fish program was established to recognize big fish and the lakes where they are caught.

Been to the lake lately?
You might have caught a lake record!

The Lake Record fish program continues to grow, as more and more anglers find themselves holding a fish that qualifies for a lake record. From lakes large and small, from one side of the state to the other, the Lake Record program recognizes anglers who land a fish that is a record for that lake.

Once an angler catches a fish that might qualify as a lake record, he or she must have the catch certified at a Lake Record Keeper location. For a full list of record keepers, visit our web site, wildlifedepartment.com.

To qualify for the Lake Record Program, your catch must be larger than a 6-pound largemouth bass; 4-pound smallmouth bass; 2-pound spotted bass; 2-pound crappie; 15-pound channel catfish; 40-pound blue or flathead catfish; 3-pound white bass; 20-pound striped bass; 8-pound hybrid; 5-pound walleye/saugeye; 1-pound sunfish or 40-pound paddlefish.
