Trophies

The Shark Angling Club of Great Britain has one of the largest, if not the largest trophy cabinet entirely devoted to the catch and release of sharks.

In total the club have 37 perpetual angler trophies which are awarded annually and held by the winners until a minimum of one month before the end of the season when they must be returned to the secretary.

In addition, there are 9 perpetual skipper trophies which are awarded annually and held by the winners until a minimum of one month before the end of the season when they must be returned to the secretary.

Each month there is a cup for the best shark of the month which is awarded at the end of the season and which the winner retains.

At the end of the season an engraved salver is presented to new winners of each British Measured and Released Line Class Record which the winner retains. To be a winner your record must have been achieved in the awarding year and remain unbeaten throughout the season.

The Mitchell-Hedges Special Award was replaced by a SACGB Challenge Award for the first Blue Shark of 350lbs or more. The angler and skipper involved will receive a commemorative trophy to mark this achievement.

Most, but not all of these trophies are available only to members of the club.

The majority of these trophies are awarded for sharks which have been brought aboard, measured and released which enables a points score to be determined. The points score for a shark are determined by combining the length nose to fork of tail with girth measured to the front of, but not including the dorsal fin. One inch equals one point

From 2018 another category of trophy has been introduced which is the Visually Estimated Shark category. This category has been added in recognition that an increasing number of anglers and skippers are choosing not to bring the sharks aboard, preferring to release them at the side of the boat. This category will also provide a trophy claim opportunity for anglers when the shark is simply too large to bring aboard the boat safely and when to do so would not be in the best interest of the sharks welfare.  In these situations the committee will consider video, photographic and any other forms of evidence. Although an accurate measurement is more difficult when the shark is not brought aboard, an estimate is often possible and the measuring process can be recorded.
