Nearly 14-Pound Bass Landed in Tournament is a Texas Lake Record

Check out this monster Texas lake record!

Cleveland fisherman Kurt Luker caught the kind of fish every tournament angler looks to get during the Texas Team Trail tournament.

The monster largemouth he landed at Belton Lake last Saturday tipped the scales at 13.97 pounds. Interestingly enough, KCENTV reports the lake is better known for being a smallmouth fishery and the lake has not been known for big largemouths in the past.

We guess no one told Luker that. The monster bass lived to see another fight on another day after state biologists with the Toyota ShareLunker program gathered some data on it.

The program gathers data on bass over 13 pounds with the Texas Parks and Wildlife department to help protect big fish populations. The fish is a lake record for Lake Belton.

Congrats on an awesome catch Luker. Right now is prime time for big bass, and if this fish doesn’t pump you up to go fishing, nothing will!
