Want to know how your catch measures up to the world’s greatest? The entire IGFA World Records database is right at your fingertips! Searchable by vacant, approved, or pending records, the World Records database makes selecting your next line- or tippet-class record target easier than ever. The App is automatically updated with the latest records when it is opened and connected to cellular or wi-fi signal.
Want to know what you caught? Find out by searching the IGFA Species ID section. Along with marine artists Diane Rome Peebles’ and Duane Ravers’ incredible full-color images of record game species, the ID descriptions include extensive reference material from the IGFA including thorough habitat information, geographic distribution, and anatomy.
Record your catch using the My Catches section. Take a photo (iPhone 3Gs or 4) of the monster fish you land, enter the details of your fight and upload to Facebook or email with one easy step. On the iPhone or iPad, GPS functions will automatically record the location of your catches as you log them.
For anglers on a mission, use the Quest List to track your progress towards your next Weight Club (for bass, snook, or bonefish) or IGFA Slam Club. You can also create your own customizable quest.
Before you go out, use the Trip Planning List to help you prepare for a great day on the water. The right equipment? Check. Plenty of water and sunscreen? Check. IGFA Mobile App? Check!
Know the angling rules before you hit the water using the IGFA Rules section. Created over 70 years ago, the IGFA rules are the only internationally recognized angling rules. If you want your catch to count, then these are the rules to know.
Do you think your catch is close to the current record? Use the IGFA Weigh Station feature to find the nearest certified location to weigh your catch.
Finally, if you need more information you can call or email the IGFA directly.
