Naconchie got 100,000 SAL fingerlings and yes, other lakes where they weren't caught have received a few, mostly new or private lakes. But to infer that SAL offspring are being used to stock lakes en masse is wrong. They're now being incorporated into other hatcheries across the state, but this has only begun recently.

FIRST SAL offspring caught in Texas 2017.

"TPWD hatcheries staff plan to incorporate ShareLunker offspring into the Florida largemouth bass brood fish in hatcheries across the state, which could eventually increase the total ShareLunker offspring stocked annually into participating lakes from tens of thousands to more than 8 million."

That statement above was also made in this article, 2017.

Does anyone know when the state started stocking all the brood ponds in fork before it filled?

I personally am glad to see this. We have caught a lot of 8's and 9's the last few years out there. Not as many 10's as before when all the 10-15 lbs. bass were being caught. But after seeing this, and seeing some of the under bags so far this year, I think the lake may be getting back healthy again. Still a ways to go, but looking good for sure!

Sharelunker program was started to breed big fish. Itís a lab, itís a science project. It is a public relation project also. Sharelunker offsprings have been used for years to introduce Florida, and Florida/native fish. Offspring into hundreds of lakes. Marine Creek and Naconiche are the first genetically proven SAL offsprings to come from other SALís caught from other lakes and bred to improve fishing all over the state. That proves the program is working. And more SAL offsprings of Salís being caught should hopefully become normal. Letís hope that is the case.

Sort of spitting hairs here . Were there Florida strain fish in Texas lakes before SAL came along? Yes. But not In vast majority of lakes, only a select few. Has the SAL program been breeding and stocking Fish in lakes in Texas, along with BAU programs? YES for years. TPW while far from perfect, have made fishing for a trophy Largemouth , truly a life changing event. They should be applauded for their work.

Congrats again to the angler.

Blindshot,

Yes not to hijack the thread. Once again congratulations to the lucky Angler that caught the giant from Fork.

I am not completely familiar with the SAL program . What I will say is Florida strains are the only way to get the genetics lined up to produce fish that are in the " teen's " and /or larger.
I used to fish a really small lake in California ( 13 acres) . It was stocked in the late 70's with Florida strains . It was one of the first California lakes to stock em . In the mid 90's it produced many "teen " fish , including a 17.4lber . Similar lakes surrounding this " small " lake that have not had Florida strains stocked haven't come close to the 17.4lbs and all of them have similar food supplies .
Genetics are key , but Florida strains are harder to catch in general .

I've read @ 1979. Also read that fish up to 8.5 lbs were stocked in those brood ponds. I'm sure they were fed well before the lake level overtook the ponds.

Berkeley black/blue jig with baby brush trailer in 4 ft of water. Neighbor was next to his boat when he caught it and took his picture. We fished next to him the next day and I told him to email Berkeley and tell them heíd swap the story and picture for a few boxes of baits

Same as naconiche, that's how you get some 10-14lb fish in a few years. They didn't grow there, they were already big when put in.
