TrophyCatch Program to Win a New Phoenix Boat/Mercury Outboard

Earn a Chance to Win a New Phoenix Boat/Mercury Outboard in Florida TrophyCatch Program

The TrophyCatch Season 7 Phoenix Boat drawing took place in December at Camp Mack Guy Harvey Lodge, Marina & Resort! There was a big crowd present for the Bobby Lane High School Cup. Following the weigh-in, Bobby Lane and FWC Division of Freshwater Fisheries Management director Jon Fury hosted the final drawing. Four of the five finalists were present for a chance to win a Phoenix Boats 819 Pro powered by Mercury Marine and MotorGuide trolling motor, guided by Lowrance electronics, and anchored by Power-Pole Total Boat Control. Angler Ben Furfine (on far right) was the final drawing winner! Ben has one TrophyCatch bass to his name, but all that is needed to be included in the Season 8 drawing is to register now for TrophyCatch. If you have previously registered, then you are automatically included in each annual drawing.


There was a great crowd and four finalists present for the TrophyCatch Season 7 Phoenix Boats drawing! Lunker Club winner Ben Furfine was then "the last man standing" becoming the Phoenix bass boat winner.

TrophyCatch Season 8 is now well underway, and approved submissions since the program launched in 2012 include:

  • 8,006 Lunker Club bass (8-9.9 lbs.)
  • 1,966 Trophy Club bass (10-12.9 lbs.)
  • 78 Hall of Fame bass (13+ lbs.)

So far in Season 8 there have been a total of 844 approved submissions as of February — better than most previous seasons. Nathaniel Kicklighter is the current Season 8 leader with this amazing 14 lbs. 11 oz. catch from Putnam County waters. Although we are entering the post-spawn period, fishing is still great in Florida, the Bass Fishing Capital of the World. We can't wait to see what the rest of the season brings!
