Angler Awards

It's Challenging and fun

  1. Go fishing with a Mepps lure and catch a fish that meets the minimum size requirements listed below.
  2. Print and fill out the Angler Award application also found below. You do not have to make a purchase to enter your catch. We will send you a handsome embroidered Trophy Fish Award patch for your favorite jacket or vest, along with a chevron identifying the species of fish you caught. You may enter as many different species of fish as you want, or continue entering the same species, however each entry must be larger than any previous entry of the same species. Trophy Fish Award patches are sent to you for your first entry only. After that you will receive an embroidered chevron for each fish.
  3. After you've caught four DIFFERENT qualifying species of fish - - a grand slam - - you'll become a Mepps Master Angler, one of the highest honors in our sport.
  4. After you've caught 10 DIFFERENT qualifying species of fish, you'll be awarded a Mepps Expert Fisherman patch, identifying you as one of the best fishermen in the country. There are fewer than 300 Mepps Expert Anglers world-wide.
  5. To get started, send a photo of your next qualifying Mepps catch, along with your completed application(found below).
