The tables below list the biggest fish caught in each category of the Freshwater Sportfishing Awards Program for the current calendar year. Tables will be updated regularly beginning on March 1 of every year.

Record Breaking Catch? Anglers who believe they have broken a state record must present their fish in its entirety (whole) to a fisheries biologist at MassWildlife Field Headquarters in Westborough or at any of the five MassWildlife District offices. In keeping with MassWildlife regulations prohibiting the transportation of live fish without a permit, any fish submitted for weighing must be dead.
