ShareLunker 471: It Ain’t Over ‘til It’s Over
Choke Canyon Reservoir sends sixth ShareLunker of the season to Athens
ATHENS, Texas — Don’t count your chickens until they hatch, and don’t close the books on the ShareLunker program until the last tick of the clock April 30.
With less than a week to go until the official close of the ShareLunker season, Sam Koebcke of Austin added another ShareLunker to Choke Canyon Reservoir’s tally for the year, a 13.30-pound bass that stretched 26.75 inches long and 20.75 inches in girth.
The six ShareLunkers from Choke Canyon this season weighed a total of 85.31 pounds, an average of 14.21 pounds. The biggest fish of the year from the lake was a 15.45-pound lake record.
As a measure of Choke Canyon’s performance, compare the 14.21-pound average with the average for Lake Conroe’s four entries, 13.98 pounds; and the average for Lake Fork’s four entries, 13.88 pounds.
