Big Fish Catch Statistics

Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division


ALABAMA'S BIG FISH CATCH STATISTICS

Catch statistics will be used to document angling trends and seasonal techniques used to catch large sportfish from Alabama reservoirs.  This information will provide anglers with answers to questions related to depth of water, lure and color choices, moon phase, habitat types, and even the time of day when trophy fish are caught.  Anglers will also learn how these trends can change from season to season, from lake to lake, and even from species to species.

Big fish catch statistics will be reported on a statewide, seasonal, or lake by lake basis in the annual B.A.I.T. Report, and will be presented in as much detail as possible, depending upon the information provided.  However, specific locations of catches are not required.  The catch statistics questionnaire is a part of the Master/Trophy Angler Application.
