no ...one's a kept fish award and they other is a released fish award....I've only kept two largemouths in something like 10 years and thats one of them .....they other is in my freezer wrapped in the towwel waiting for my wife to ok the mount...hahahahhah.....So one master angler award is for the mounted fish and they other is for a fish I released ...both were taken from spratt platt
Ok, that's cool. I only have one to my name -- I wonder how many TAL has?!?!!?
That reminds me I was reading an obituary the other day and I noticed one in which a fellow's family did not list any of his war medals or other accomplishments of his life, they only listed the two Master Angler Awards that he received over his lifetime. Maybe these things come in handy at the pearly gates!
Im gonna try to get a few more before the season's over ....bluegill, Yellow perch.....I've caught 4-5 rainbows this year that were 23.50 inches and the legth you need is 24 ...hahah...oh well im sure if I keep at it i'll get one soon
