Catch General Sumter is a year-long tagged fishing contest in Lake Panasoffkee. The General is a giant 11 pound bass worth $10,000; but he has many other associates swimming around the lake worth valuable prizes as well.
TrophyCatch is a program that emphasizes live-release of largemouth bass heavier than eight pounds. Bass that do not qualify for TrophyCatch may apply for a Big Catch certificate. Register online at TrophyCatchFlorida.com.
