The Lunker Awards Program is intended to give recognition to anyone who catches an exceptionally big fish in one of our Connestee Falls lakes. This will also provide feedback to our Fishery Management Committee and other anglers about the health of our fishery. The Lunker Program is open to all Club members and non-members holding a Connestee fishing license. Winners will receive a $25 clubhouse dining certificate and a Lunker Award certificate suitable for framing. There is no limit on the number of Lunker awards an individual can win.
Lunkers must meet the following minimum lengths
Bass 19 inches
Trout 20 inches
Catfish 25 inches
Bluegill (Sunfish/Brim) 11 inches
Perch 14 inches
If an eligible fish is caught, fill out the Submit a Catch form or contact Al Byrne (firstname.lastname@example.org). In addition to the length, please provide where/when the fish was caught and the bait/lure used. We recommend "catch and release" for all lunkers except trout which should be harvested. Additional specifics would be appreciated when possible, including weight and a picture alongside a tape measure. Also, the Club would appreciate a photo of you holding your lunker.
