Since last February’s printing of GON’s Georgia Lake and River Records list, we’ve added 44 fish, up from the 33 fish we added in February 2022 and 31 fish that were added in February 2021.
GON’s exclusive list is always available at GON.com. You never need to wonder if you have a possible record fish or not. From the boat or bank, you can simply visit GON.com to see if your fish is in the ballpark. From there, you’ll need to follow the steps at the end of this article. Below is a collection of some photos of the fish caught during 2022.
Catch A Lake or River Record?
Requirements For Record Fish
• Fish must be caught legally by rod and reel in a manner consistent with WRD game and fish regulations.
• Catch must be weighed on accurate Georgia DOA certified scales with at least two witnesses present.
• Witnesses to the weighing must be at least 18 years old, and they must not be members of the angler’s immediate family nor have a close personal relationship with the angler.
• Catch must be positively identified by qualified DNR personnel. GON can correspond with DNR when high quality, multiple photos are taken of the fish and emailed to GON. All record submissions and photos must be sent to [email protected]
GON’s records are compiled and maintained by GON, to be awarded at GON’s discretion. Additional steps may be required for record consideration.
