I'm not aware of anything over 16 that's been caught this year anywhere. Last year there were a couple 16's, an 18, and at least one 19 out of CA. Very few sharelunkers this year as well. I haven't done a tally recently, but I think TBend lunker program numbers are way down. Lots of big fish are caught every year and go un-reported, so I think that's normal. The biggest fish though, they tend to be tough secrets to keep. Sure haven't seen many this year.
