Fork gives up season's first ShareLunker

Fork gives up season's first ShareLunker

David Roulston of Frisco, Texas kicked off the current Toyota ShareLunker season with his catch of a 13.88-pound largemouth bass from Lake Fork on Nov. 20.

Roulston was fishing in 25 feet of water with a Zoom Brush Hog when the fish slammed his lure. The bruiser was 26 3/4 inches long and 20 1/2 inches in girth.

Roulston’s catch sets the bar for anglers hoping to become Angler of the Year. The person who catches the season’s largest entry will get that honr and will receive a G. Loomis rod, Shimano reel and PowerPro line combination. If the Angler of the Year is a Texas resident, that person also receives a lifetime Texas fishing license.

Anyone legally catching a 13-pound or bigger largemouth bass from Texas waters, public or private, between Oct. 1 and April 30 may submit the fish to the Toyota ShareLunker program. Fish will be picked up by Texas Parks and Wildlife Department personnel within 12 hours.

All anglers entering fish into the Toyota ShareLunker program receive a free replica of their fish, a certificate and ShareLunker clothing and are recognized at a banquet at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center in Athens. Prizes and funding for the banquet are provided by Toyota, which also provides a Tundra pickup truck for use in picking up and returning the majority of lunkers and their offspring.

ShareLunker catches can be reported 24 hours a day, 7 days a week during the season by calling (903) 681-0550.
