Did you know that IGFA is WAY more than just an organization for keeping track of fishing world records?

They are doing some really big things for conservation, getting kids fishing, and much much more.

In this podcast episode, I interview Jason Schratwieser, acting president, where he shares all of the great things they are doing (and how it impacts you as a fisherman).

He talks about:

  • The history of the IGFA
  • The top things that will disqualify you from getting an IGFA record fish
  • The most popular misconceptions about the IGFA
  • The amazing things they’re doing for conservation
  • Their goal of teaching 100,000 kids to fish (and how they’re going about it)
  • And much more!

The IGFA does a LOT more than I imagined before I talked to Jason.

What an awesome dude.

It’s super encouraging to hear about all of the steps that they’re taking in efforts of conservation and teaching kids to fish.
