Ask an East Texan what plans they may have for the weekend, fishing could very well be at the top of their list. For good reason, too, as East Texas lakes are great for just about any kind of fisherman or woman, no matter the skill level. One fish that is plentiful in East Texas and can produce some big catches is bass. In East Texas so far this year, there has been a plethora of big catches.

Texas Parks and Wildlife has a program called the Toyota Sharelunker Program. This program records the big catches made by anglers all across the state. Its as simple as downloading a free app and recording the bass caught of eight plus pounds and/or 24 inches in length. During the first three months of each year, bass of 13 pounds or more can be loaned for spawning with your catch being recognized as a Legacy Sharelunker.

The Sharelunker Program, in general, lasts year round. So get out this weekend and find that big catch. Just to show how good its been in East Texas so far this year, check out the submissions below to the Sharelunker Program so far this year from our area lakes.
