  • 2nd place overall school in tournament: 150 points

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) reserves the right to deny any catch submission to the FWC High School Fishing Tournament. State laws prohibit false claims or fraud when claiming prizes.

To participate in the FWC High School Fishing Tournament, all fish must be caught by the angler being recognized in accordance with the Florida recreational fishing regulations at the time of the catch. This includes, but is not limited to, the angler being properly licensed or using an approved exemption, as well as using legal gear and fishing where the angler has legal access.

Angler Recognition:

Earn even more rewards by submitting your catches to one of FWC’s angler recognition programs:

Proper Fish Handling Techniques for Photos:

  • Anglers should handle their catch with wet hands only (do not use a towel), be careful not to poke fingers into eyes or gills and fully support the body weight of the fish by cradling it horizontally.
  • If not held, fish should be photographed in a rubber-coated, knotless landing net rather than lying on a dock, cooler or boat deck.
  • Measure length on a wet, cool surface. Do not place fish on hot, dry boat surfaces.
  • Large fish that will not be harvested should not be removed from the water or boated, as this can injure the fish.
  • For more catch-and-release techniques, see the following: Catch and Release Brochure, Fish Handling and Gear
  • It is preferred that anglers on vessels are photographed wearing personal floatation devices.
