Weight Check Procedure & Submission

Why use a Weighslip?  

The Southwestern Yacht Club Anglers are interested in your catch!   We list your catch in the Reel Fun section of the Mooringline.   We also, record your fish for a possible award each year.   We have a number of different categories for a number of different awards.  

Did you know, we have awards for the same species of fish with different line test?

We certainly do.   We have several awards all which are for different species of fish all with different line pound test.    


The Anglers Board hold an awards dinner each year.  At that dinner all the weighslips are reviewed for awards.  Each award winner receives a SWYC Anglers jacket and an additional award of the current Anglers President’s choosing.

The Weight Slip must be fully filled out and VERY ACCURATE.   They must be signed by the angler and a witness.   Often times the difference in a winning award is 1 ounce.  This is an SWYC on-your-honor fact sheet.


We have a full spreadsheet of all weightslips that are recorded.

Your SWYC Anglers keep a running form of all the Anglers and their recorded catches for the year.    Each annual year, the spreadsheet is cleared and new records are recorded.
