A Master Angler Award will be awarded to each student angler for their first fish caught in a category that meets the minimum length requirement and is appropriately documented.
A student angler may earn more than one Master Angler Award by catching a quality fish from another category; however, only one award per single category will be awarded regardless of the number of quality fish caught. All Master Angler fish caught will be displayed on the website in the Master Angler photo album.
An angler that has caught 3 or more Master Angler species in a given year will receive a plaque at the State Championship mixer.
