Skillful Angler Recognition Program Leader Board

 

The 2015 expansion of the Skillful Angler Recognition Program (SARP) included the new Leader Board. The tables below list the current leader in the main program categories for both freshwater and saltwater fish. The list will be updated regularly as heavier/larger fish are certified in the program.

For minimum qualifying weights and lengths for all species, application information and lists of past winners are found on the main SARP page. The Division of Fish and Wildlife encourages all anglers to keep the SARP in mind when fishing, but more importantly, encourages everyone to get outdoors and enjoy some of the great fishing our state has to offer.
