The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s “Toyota ShareLunker Program” is entering its 31st season. Each year, the TPWD asks anglers from all over Texas to donate their most impressive largemouth bass for spawning purposes. For 30 years, the TPWD has used the donated fish to hatch bigger and healthier generations of fish. For this reason, the contest only accepts bass larger than 13 pounds.
The contest works on a “catch and hold” system. In order to participate, an angler must call the TPWD with their name and where the fish is located after being caught. Within 12 hours, a representative will contact the angler and take a look at the fish wherever it is being held, be it a weighing or holding station.
