  • If the fish is larger than the previous fish in the program the Corps will have the fish mounted.
  • The fish must hang in the Visitor’s Center until a larger one is turned in. “At that time the previous “big fish” may be taken home by the owner.
  • To display a picture of your big fish. Bring a picture to the Lake Shelbyville Visitor Center to be displayed. A picture may also be taken of your fish at the Visitor Center. The picture will be displayed on the Lake Shelbyville "wall of fame".
