5 Hot Texas Lakes for Lunkers


Texas Parks & Wildlife

Our popular Toyota ShareLunker program has partnered with anglers to promote and enhance bass fishing in Texas since 1986. The first of 2020, was caught by Brittany Newman of Longview at Gilmer Reservoir

The top 5 ShareLunker producing lakes in 2019 were:

  1. Lake Fork near Quitman 
  2. Lake Conroe near Houston 
  3. Lake Athens in Athens 
  4. Sam Rayburn Reservoir near Jasper 
  5. O.H. Ivie Lake near San Angelo

Take a look back at the 2019 season in the Texas Parks & Wildlife magazine blog post, ShareLunker 2020 Season Open.

Anglers who catch a largemouth bass of at least 8 lbs. or 24″ can use the free ShareLunker App to enter the details and get a “Catch Kit” and a chance to win a $5,000 shopping spree – Ryan Waguespack of McQueeney won in 2019.

Your Lunkers can be submitted to our breeding program from Jan.-March, which continues the growth of bigger, better bass populations across the state.

The Toyota ShareLunker Program is made possible by the generous sponsorship of Toyota. Prize sponsors Bass Pro Shops, Lake Fork Taxidermy, American Fishing Tackle Co. and Stanley Jigs provide additional support for this program.
