This has nothing to do with Oklahoma fishing, but it was such a nice photo and nice fish I thought I would share it.
Texas has something it calls the Sharelunker program. Anyone legally catching a 13-pound or heavier largemouth bass in Texas waters between Oct. 1 and April 30 can enter it into the Sharelunker program.
The fish are used in a selective breeding program aimed at increasing the size and number of big bass in Texas.
The fish above was caught at Lake Conroe, near Houston, by Renee Linderoth of Conroe. She caught the fish weighing 13.8 pounds on a Hula Grub in 2 feet of water.
Lake Conroe is fourth on the Texas list of most Sharelunkers with 16. You can probably guess No. 1. It’s Lake Fork, with 240 entries, far ahead of second place Alan Henry (25) and Sam Rayburn (23).
