Fellow anglers....lots of talk about this issue. Do we really want TPWD to listen? Has anyone reached out or started a petition? If so, let me know and I will take this one down. Otherwise, let's see how serious everyone is about this change...or do we just like to talk about it online?

Change.org - Change the Sharelunker Program Names

Note....this is not about eliminating the program, simply changing the names of the new program. Comment on the petition or this thread for suggestions or ideas to make this work better.

Seriously though. So many people complain about Chase’s posts that i’d be interested to see who actually made an effort to change it.

I liked the term sharelunker belonging to a fish 13 lbs or over. Anything less, not so much, jmo.

Aren't we really just talking about one guy who is beating us down with the misnomer? I haven't met one other person who refers to a sub-13 as a Sharelunker. To "share" the genetics you have to donate the fish. It's really that simple.

Technically, he is calling those fish what TPWD now refers to them as. This is YEAR ONE. As times goes by, more and more anglers will start to call 8 pound fish Sharelunkers.

We have lowered the bar in our schools and workplace......why not in the sharelunker program? This way, everyone gets a ribbon..

I've caught thousands upon thousands of 8 lb. Sharelunkers. I'm sure there are a bunch of guys here who can say the same.

The Share-A-Lunker program is in the process of building a "CRYING CLOSET", for these snowflakes. flame I used snowflakes in place of what they really are to escape being Banned !!! thumb

I'm fine with the new program, no changes needed. Just new attitudes.

I haven't checked into it but doesn't this new program more resemble Florida's version of the sharelunker? Personally I like and prefer the 13lb SAL program over the new one but it doesn't bother me that Chasin Bass or anyone else promotes their fish that way. I don't watch his videos but I think people are just getting tired of hearing it.

While we are at it....can we agree to change the aforementioned snowflake’s name to “Chasin Clicks” or “Chasin PseudoSAL”?
