The Alabama Lake Record Certification will honor those individuals who catch the largest species of black bass (largemouth bass, spotted bass, smallmouth bass and redeye bass) from each reservoir or lake, and will provide the Fisheries Section with useful statistics on the number of large fish caught from Alabama reservoirs.  A detailed description of the rules and requirements can be found on the Lake Record Application.  To be considered for a Lake Record, fish must meet the minimum weight requirements listed in the table, have two witnesses of the weighing on certified scales; species identification by a state fisheries biologist or certified fisheries biologist; a side-view photograph; a photograph with the angler holding the fish, and the application must be completed and returned within three months of the catch. 

Alabama's Lake Record Black Bass
