Texas Anglers Donate Huge Bass to the Toyota ShareLunker Program


Here is just one example of one of the 13-plus pound bass donated this season. Gary Wingate of Amarillo donated this 14.39-pound largemouth, which he caught from Falcon Reservoir, to Texas’ ShareLunker program.

The Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center, located in Athens, is the headquarters for the Toyota ShareLunker Program, which encourages anglers who have caught 13-pound-plus largemouth bass to lend or donate the fish to Texas Parks and Wildlife Department for spawning purposes.

Here are the fish that were donated this season, which runs annually from Oct. 1 to April 30.
