(Indianapolis, Ind.) – Indiana anglers are being encouraged to document their biggest catches of the year online.

The Indiana DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife is now accepting online entries for their Fish of the Year and Record Fish programs.

The State Record Fish program documents the largest fish by species ever caught in Indiana. Record fish are determined by weight and length. The Fish of the Year program documents the largest fish by species caught in a given year. Fish of the Year are judged by length only.

Indiana anglers can now easily document their large catches by submitting data and a photo at www.wildlife.IN.gov/9453.htm.

“It allows anglers to enter right from the field from any internet connected device,” said Michelle Cain, wildlife information specialist with the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife. “We’re hoping that by making the process simpler we will get more entries this year.”

Anglers still have the option to mail in Record Fish or Fish of the Year forms. Those forms are provided in the Fish Rules and Regulations Guide.
