Lake Fork, Texas: Guides and regulars have been saying that 2003 would be a another banner year for Lake Fork and so far their predictions are right on target. The Budweiser Sharelunker team from Athens made their third trip (in three days) to the 27,500 acre Mega-Bass reservoir in East Texas to claim the latest entry into the nationally acclaimed Sharelunker program.

Brandon Moss from Ardmore, Oklahoma started the Sharelunker express Thursday afternoon when he landed a 13.51 lb. Bass on a black and blue jig, while fishing with guide Jason Hoffman. Brandon’s fish became the second Lake Fork lunker from Fork (and the 4th entry for the year) to join the 13 pound plus club. Numbers 5 and 6 followed two days later on Saturday, as Chuck Vickers from Rockwall, Texas brought in a lunker weighing 13.48 lbs, caught at 11:30 AM on a black and blue Brush Hog. Later that afternoon, the Sharelunker team was once again called to Fork when Corey Harvill from Shreveport, LA caught Lunker # 6 for the year on Lake Fork. Corey's lunker weighed 13.11 lbs, and was fooled by live bait.

The three large fish came almost a year from last year’s "Record Breaking" day on Lake Fork, which saw three giant fish caught in one day and donated to the Sharelunker program. Those large fish also came during the time of the year that marked the Full moon phase in March, which seems to trigger the spawning urge for giant Lake Fork females. Since the full moon falls on March 18th this year, many predict that the next two weeks will produce several more large fish into the Sharelunker program. That should not be a problem for David Campbell and the Sharelunker team. The road from Athens to Fork is well known and heavily traveled as they are expected to receive several more calls to pick up numerous Lake Fork Sharelunkers in the weeks to come.
