I'm very disappointed they did away with the trophy bass program they had but I understand the reasoning. But there's other options Florida has a great program I cashed in on a 10 lb bass in December and Texas is starting a similar program. Basically you weigh your fish take a picture of the scales and you get discounts, gift cards, and other prizes. If anyone knows a fish and wildlife employee or if you run into one push the idea of a program like this. They are complaint driven so if they enough feedback maybe something will happen.
