Check out all these impressive bass!
For the lucky anglers who catch and enter a bass that big, they get a free replica of their fish. They all received their replicas last week and it made for quite the impressive display. Check it out:
Every angler that catches a bass over 13 pounds and loans it to the breeding program is also entered into a drawing for a $5,000 gift card to Bass Pro Shops. This year Michael Terrebonne was the lucky winner of the outdoor shopping spree.
Yes, we're very jealous of Michael. A mega-sized bass, a free replica mount AND $5,000 worth of new gear? It's safe to say he's having a great spring!
John LaBove caught the largest fish entered this year, a 15.48-pounder he landed in Lake Fork on March 2.
The ShareLunker breeding program has partnered with Toyota and Texas Parks and Wildlife since 1986 in an effort to enhance bass fishing in the Lone Star State. The minimum size for entry in the program is 8 pounds or 24 inches.
Anglers who catch a fish over 13 pounds earn a rare level of achievement known as Lunker Legacy Class.
