2018 Fish Catching Program Saw First Large, Legacy Bass Caught in San Angelo Lake in 28 Years

At the beginning of 2018, the Toyota ShareLunker program debuted a new year-long season for anglers to enter their eight pound and larger bass for prizes, recognition, and to help the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department promote and enhance bass fishing in Texas.

On Dec. 31, staff wrapped up the first year of the revamped program with a total of 380 anglers entering 486 “lunker” bass from 89 lakes across the state. The program is sponsored by Toyota. In San Angelo, for the first time in more than 28 years, the Twin Buttes Reservoir produced a Toyota ShareLunker largemouth bass exceeding 13 pounds. Angler Austin Terry of San Angelo caught the 13.40 pound, 25-3/4-inch Legacy Class lunker on a Santone spinnerbait 1/2-ounce red river special in less than four feet of water at the lake on March 14, 2018.
