Has Tpwd watered down the term Share lunker . Seems like that was a term for fish over 13 lbs and now just a good fish is called that.

what's a lunker?

8# and over works for me, DD is just that much better.

I think the way it is now will help fisheries if people just send the scales in. if you kept it at only 13+ you don't end up with the data that allowing 8# and up will give. I think it will help with stockings etc. over the long run. jmo

You take a 32 oz. tumbler.. Fill it with ice.. Kinda small cubes. You fill it about 3/4 full of Jack Daniels.. And you add a splash of water or Coke or whatever..

Suddenly you hear footsteps coming down the hall.. You put the glass in the big drawer of your desk.. Your boss sits down in the chair across from you and talks for thirty minutes about his daughters soccer game from last night..

He finally leaves.. You pull your glass out and take a sip..

That's what ShareLunker tastes like right now..

Pretty watered down..

I dont think so. We’re so spoiled here with insanely good fisheries that we sometimes forget that a huge number of people that bass fish consider an 8+ a true trophy. Pretty cool for TPWD to offer some recognition on the share lunker platform imo. Also brings more awareness to the program as well as providing TPWD with additional data to study. Just have to get used to saying “Legacy Class ShareLunker” for those freaks over 13.

Everybody knows a true sharelunker is 13lbs+. That said, ShareLunker is just the name of a program designed to help to improve the states fisheries. Adding "classes" to that program has nothing to do with everyone getting a participation trophy. It has to do with the state being super interested in as much data as they can get their hands on in regards to big fish. Hence they've made a couple different classes to encourage people to flood them with data. It's a business exchange. You take 3 minutes and give them some details on a fish over 8lbs, and they will send you a shoe box package with about 15 bucks worth of fishing related items in it. Win/Win.

So stop complaining it's a participation trophy or watering down of the terms. It's the state trying to make our fisheries better with a few different classes of fish to get more data. Lunker (8lbs +), Elite (10lbs +), Legend (13lbs +). Oh by the way, if you don't want to help the fisheries in the state get better, you don't have to participate!

sharelunker used to be a highly sought after achievement. 8 pounders come way to often.

photofish, used to sell a bunch of Courvoisier Xo mixed with coke to some of the dallas cowboys back in their day at Humperdinks and Old SanFrancisco Steak House.

Well stated. Seems everyone overlooks that the Lunker and Elite class were introduced to help gather more data on genetics.

Lunker class is also 24inches and up. Could be 5lbs if it’s 24inches.

I am not sure what all this "Data" is going to change.. I'm betting nothing..

We have been studying bass for decades.. This ain't no new species of fish..

This SL program is a great publicity program for the state of Texas..

Nothing more..

Don't make me use PAW's data again to prove my point.. I don't have the energy..
