The 35th Toyota Sharelunker season begins


2021 will make 35 years that the Toyota Sharelunker Program has been going strong.

If you reel in a largemouth bass that’s at least 8 pounds or 24 inches, you can participate simply by entering your Lunker catch information online or on the ShareLunker mobile app during the year-long season (Jan. 1 – Dec. 31). Lunkers 13 pounds-plus that are caught during spawning season (Jan. 1 – March 31) can be donated to the Sharelunker program – just call the mobile hotline at (903) 681-0550 and we’ll come pick it up!

Once a lunker is reeled in, enter the catch data on the Toyota ShareLunker mobile app – available for free from the Apple App Store and Google Play – or on the Toyota ShareLunker online app at In addition to providing basic catch information, you can also provide a DNA scale sample from your lunker bass to TPWD researchers for genetic analysis.
