I have a trip scheduled in the summer time because the lodge I'm staying at is beautiful then. If you go to the sharelunker fan page you'll see their has been a couple caught just under 13 so it may be picking up right now.
I totally agree. I'm okay with having an elite class at the DD range where they got those little prizes because those are great fish but they are not sharelunkers. 8+ is ridiculous. Sharelunkers will always be 13+. 10-12 Elite Class but 13+ is legendary and are sharelunkers. Heck, make a certain level for 16+. They are about as rare as a 20 in Cali nowadays it seems but when it happens I think it would be cool to get extra prizes and what not since it is such a great fish.
