Toledo Bend Lake

Because Life is Better at the Lake

Thirty-three lunkers registered in the 2017-18

Toledo Bend Lake Association (TBLA) will once again be awarding replicas to anglers at the "Big Bass Splash" at Cypress Bend Park on May 20, 2018.

As of March 29, 2018, 33 lunkers have been registered in the 2017-18 Lunker Year. An increase in lunkers registered is anticipated as TBLA records show that March is the best month to catch a lunker as fish react to rising water temperatures.

Since its inception, over 900 lunkers have been caught and released in Toledo Bend Lake through the Lunker Bass Program. There were 72 lunkers caught and registered during the 2016-17 year, and in 2015-16 a record 139 lunkers were caught and registered in the program.

Photos of the anglers and their lunkers are posted on the Toledo Bend Lunker Bass Program Facebook page. For a complete list of lunkers, along with program rules and handling tips, visit

All fish caught and registered through the program are tagged and returned to the Lake to spawn and be caught again. The TBLA Lunker Bass Program is the signature conservation program among many projects sponsored by the Association to meet its mission: "to improve the quality of Toledo Bend Lake and the amenities surrounding it."
