    For most states the citation holder is just like a record's list. It's like a pat on the back for doing a good job. Like any sport, it's nice to see where the title holders are at and compare your skill to theirs. They also serve to help the DNR to get data on various game species.

For state fishery departments, citation programs let them court tourism by tooting their horns about the quality of their sport-fishing. Also, information about large fish and where and when they were caught is interesting data for fish managers, field biologists and yours truly, so I can give a local fishing hole a proper workout during the best time.
