    Town Lake Monster Share a Lunker?

    Fishing South end of Town Lake Sunday.

    Happy to report landing potential Share-a-Lunker. On bathroom scales, he measures 11.5. 24.5 inches.

    Caught out of my Ocean Kayak just after sundown on brown lizard/ creature soft plastic. 10 lb test.

    I will say, this fish has a relativley small mouth for such a monster!


    UPDATE!

    FISH WAS DELICIOUS!

    Question: Does a dead fish qualify for Share a lunker? Im going to Wal Mart to purchase a quality scale, which I can now tell everyone interested in this program, to go out and buy one!

    If its not 13.00 lbs, maybe a lake record. I will find out soon!

    UPDATE!

    Re-weighed fish today on our industrail postal scale...

    fish weighs 10.04
    Happy fishing!

    I wouldn\'t take Tuesday off if you would show me a fish that bites on the weekends!

    Congratulations on a great catch but I am sorry to tell you that dead fish do not qualify for share lunker program. Your fish must be 13+ lbs(and alive) to enter share lunker status. They are taking these 13+ fish and breeding them with large males inorder to hopefully breed the next world record bass. I am thrilled that you caught the fish, but a little dissapointed that you killed it. But it is your fish and your decision.

    Kind of hard to tell how big it is when you choose to kayak fish. Ah the spoils of not using gasoline powered motors upon our public drinking water supply!

    But I know what you mean about being dissapointed about killing it...

    Current Town Lake Record on TPWD is
    Largemouth bass 12.13lbs. and 24.75" on Dec 26, 2006 *from Michael Beers *on a plastic worm.


    I have caught a 24.5" bass on Town lake and release it before weighing it......Oh well...

    Sherkus, Congratulations. I've got a Jon boat and I want to fish TL. I see people running small engines so can I assume limited running of my 5 hp is OK? I also have a electric trolling motor. Are you interested in going? I need a guide and it sounds like you know the spots. By the way, I have a digital scale.

    Chac - no gas motors are allowed on TL only electric. The only people allowed to use gas motors are the rowing club - otherwise you can get a ticket. I used to fish the lake all the time but have not in a while... might have to now though bc of this hawg. I would be happy to show you around but right now my schedule is booked. I'll keep you in mind, or just let me know when you are going.
