Sharelunker Program

The Texas ShareLunker Program encourages those who catch
largemouth bass of 13 pounds or more to lend or donate their
fish for spawning purposes. This highly successful program
has received enthusiastic support from those who fish Texas
lakes. The goal is to produce world record largemouth bass.
