Reyes Honored As Sharelunker Angler of the Year

ATHENS, Texas — Jason Reyes of Humble was honored at a banquet May 29 at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center for having caught the largest Budweiser ShareLunker of the 2004 season

A total of 14 anglers entered 15 largemouth bass weighing 13 pounds or more in the program. Richard Mims of Laredo caught two big bass from Lake Casa Blanca in January.

Each angler received ShareLunker clothing, a certificate and a fiberglass replica of their trophy made by Lake Fork Taxidermy. Reyes also received a lifetime fishing license for being the Texas resident entering the largest fish in the program.

At the banquet, ShareLunker program director David Campbell expressed TPWD’s thanks for anglers’ support for the program and called them "the finest conservationists in the state."

Also honored during the evening was Michael ("Shorty") Powers of Terrell, who was inducted into the Texas Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame in recognition of his work involving physically challenged people in outdoor activities.

Photographs of the evening’s events, including all the honorees, may be viewed on the Budweiser ShareLunker Web site (
