The Toledo Bend Lake Association's Lunker Bass Program as of 8/3/18, has 13 lunkers entered into the program for the May 2018 - May 2019 year!


Pictured is Richard Wilson of Leesville, LA with the biggest fish caught this month, his 10.38 lb. lunker that he caught on July 27, 2018 and weighed in at Buckeye Landing Marina.


Toledo Bend guide Jason Courville figured his trip on June 28 would be about the big one that got away. He was fishing with a client in the client's boat in the 6 Mile area, and both men were throwing Carolina-rigged green pumpkin Zoom Brush Hogs with a ¾-ounce weight in about 15 feet of water.


"You could tell it was a big fish the way it bit, so I swung and set the hook on it," he said. "As soon as I did, I turned to the client and said, 'This is a big one.'
