To the angler? If so, how much do you guess?

Assuming not a guide and a public lake.

100% yes , if the angler was smart , he would limit any access to pics of the fish , how it was caught , what boat he used etc....
I would guess a true world record , caught on American soil --- could be worth millions

I agree. You could get your name on the bait package. With royalties on every package sold.

Every maker of the equipment you used. Would want you to advertise their products. Giving you kickbacks. Free products.

You would literally be Famous.

I’m going to be contrarian and say no. It’ll get you lots of attention for sure, but there will also be plenty of people doubting it, assuming it’s a fake somehow, and generally complaining (check the thread a couple of years ago on the OH Ivie big bass caught by the Nebraskans).
You might get some sponsorship deals, but I’m guessing not enough to buy a new truck, let alone retire early. Fake will be fleeting and the financial rewards not all that great.
Then again, I could be wrong.

The OP asked if a state record could make some money. I agree with whoever said sell it to BPS, they'd prolly pay some $$$. Prolly not much money to be had after that.

A world record caught here in America could be a totally different story though.

pretty sure bass pro leases the fish with significance, don't think it is legal to sell gamefish like that but not sure.

and yes, play it right and it could be worth a bunch of bucks from royalties, sponsorships etc.

May get some interview/podcast type deals for a brief period, but it'd wear off pretty quickly. State record would sure be amazing, but people aren't just going to throw money at some random person that catches it.

It'd help if you had an existing monetized social media channel AND had it on video.

Yes most definitley, especially if you caught it out of a modern bass boat, like was said I caught it out of this brand boat, trolling motor, electronics, shallow water anchors, and so on. Wouldn't worry about trying to cash out the actual fish; don't think you can do that anyway, but if it were here "share a lunker" would probably want it or it could go to BPS like Ethel did.
