ToyotaShareLunker 507: Three in a Row for O.H. Ivie

ATHENS—Christopher Wright proved again Saturday, January 15, what has become obvious to anglers: O.H. Ivie is the hottest bass lake in Texas right now.

Wright caught Toyota ShareLunker 507 from the lake while fishing in a tournament. Using a swim bait, Wright was fishing in 75 feet of water when the 13.83-pound bass took the lure at about 37 feet deep. The surface water temperature was 46 degrees.

The fish was held for pickup at Elm Creek Village, an official Toyota ShareLunker weigh and holding station. The fish was caught at 2:00 p.m. and by 2:30 p.m. was in the minnow tank at Elm Creek Village. The fish measures 26.5 inches long and 20.5 inches around.

All three fish entered into the Toyota ShareLunker program during the current season have come from O.H. Ivie. Wright’s catch came one day short of a year since O.H. Ivie started a remarkable run of big bass catches on January 16, 2010. The lake has now produced 14 bass weighing 13 pounds or more in the last 365 days, including the current lake record of 16.08 pounds caught by Jerry Bales of Hico on the last day of the previous season.

Anyone legally catching a 13-pound or bigger largemouth bass from Texas waters, public or private, between October 1 and April 30 may submit the fish to the Toyota ShareLunker program by calling program manager David Campbell at (903) 681-0550 or paging him at (888) 784-0600 and leaving a phone number including area code. Fish will be picked up by TPWD personnel within 12 hours.

Anglers entering fish into the Toyota ShareLunker program receive a free replica of their fish, a certificate and ShareLunker clothing and are recognized at a banquet at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center in Athens.

The person who catches the season’s largest entry will be named Angler of the Year and will receive a prize package from G. Loomis valued at $818. The package includes a G. Loomis NRX854C jig and worm rod, a Shimano ChronarchD1007 casting reel and 150 yards of moss green Power Pro super-braid fishing line.If a Texas angler catches the largest entry of the season, that person also receives a lifetime fishing license in addition to all other prizes.

For complete information and rules of the ShareLunker program, tips on caring for big bass and a recap of last year’s season, see www.tpwd.state.tx.us/sharelunker. The site also includes a searchable database of all fish entered into the program along with pictures where available.

Information on current catches, including short videos of interviews with anglers when available, is posted on www.facebook.com/sharelunkerprogram.

The Toyota ShareLunker Program is made possible by a grant to the Texas Parks & Wildlife Foundation from Gulf States Toyota. Toyota is a long-time supporter of the Foundation and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, providing major funding for a wide variety of education, fish, parks and wildlife projects.

O.H. I vie Continues Toyota ShareLunker Streak

ATHENS—O.H. Ivie Reservoir continues to pump out Toyota ShareLunkers. The West Texas lake produced Toyota ShareLunker 506 on January 1.

The 13.59-pound bass was the eighteenth ShareLunker from the lake and was caught by 15-year-old Nathan Peña-Alfaro of Benbrook. The sophomore at Western Hills High School was fishing in 14 feet of 43-degree water with a live sunfish.

The catch strengthens O.H. Ivie’s hold on fourth place among all-time producers of big bass in Texas, ranking ahead of such better-known lakes as Amistad (12 ShareLunkers), Falcon (11), Choke Canyon (13) and Conroe (16).

What is amazing about O.H. Ivie is that it has produced 13 of its 18 ShareLunkers since January 16, 2010. Only Lakes Fork (246 fish), Alan Henry (25) and Sam Rayburn (23) have had more entries into the ShareLunker program.

The big fish gave Peña-Alfaro a battle to remember. “I feel this tug, and I think I’m stuck, because it was just slowly moving with it,” he said. “All of a sudden my rod tip just went straight down, and I started reeling and set the hook. At first we thought it was just a nice fish, a nine-pounder or eight-pounder. She tail-danced probably 30 feet away, and we didn’t think it was that big. Then she came in to about 20 feet away and tail-danced again, and we realized the size she was. She dove under the boat, and my pole was hitting the boat and going under the boat.”

Peña-Alfaro’s stepfather netted the fish, and once she was in the boat they realized what they had. “I was speechless,” Peña-Alfaro said, “I was just shaking. But there was a lot of yelling and high-fives.”

Anyone legally catching a 13-pound or bigger largemouth bass from Texas waters, public or private, between October 1 and April 30 may submit the fish to the Toyota ShareLunker program by calling program manager David Campbell at (903) 681-0550 or paging him at (888) 784-0600 and leaving a phone number including area code. Fish will be picked up by TPWD personnel within 12 hours.

Information on current catches, including short videos of interviews with anglers, is posted on http://www.facebook.com/sharelunkerprogram. An article about O.H. Ivie and other hot bass lakes in Texas will appear in the February 2011 issue of Texas Parks & Wildlife magazine.

Air Sports Watch Joins Forces with ArmyBassAnglers

San Antonio, TX, August 1, 2010 – The mission statement behind ArmyBassAnglers (ABA) is “SUPPORT. DEFEND. FISH.”  Air Sports Watch (ASW), “Improves your game and your life with ionic technology,” remarks Robert Schrepfer, President of ASW as he announces his support of ABA through a multi-year sponsorship.

“The performance and success of ASW has been incredible in the last year, but one of the best parts is supporting ArmyBassAnglers & its Coalition of pro staff anglers”, says Robert Schrepfer, an avid supporter of the military including Tee It Up For The Troops. “For me this association holds a special place, because I know all the service people and their families make huge sacrifices so we can enjoy our freedom.  I am proud to support such a great cause.”

“ABA is doing such a fantastic job of getting our heroes out on the water for some much deserved fun and fishing, after their brave service. At the end of the day, if my Air Sports Watch can increase recovery time, improve flexibility and add something to their fishing experience, I’ll be extremely proud.”

ABA consists of 12 pro staff anglers and 100 plus coalition pro staff anglers, from all branches of service, all of whom are active duty or retired U.S. military. The organization currently fishes Bass Champs on the World Fishing Network, Big Bass Battle on Versus, World Fishing Network and Time Warner along with numerous other grass roots events and charity events which have gained them national prominence as the Ceremonial Launch Boats for the past two Bassmasters Classics, and now for a 3rd consecutive year at the 2011 Bassmaster Classic, while raising National awareness for Returning Heroes Home, Heroes on the Water and Veteran Outdoors.

The Warrior & Family Support Center, ABA’s original non-profit it supported, is a 12,000 square-foot rehabilitation center, funded solely by private donations and provides space for wounded soldiers undergoing treatment in San Antonio, allowing them to spend private time with their friends and families when they are not actively participating in rehabilitative treatment.

Heroes on the Water is a National non-profit 501c3 that focuses its efforts on kayaking and fishing as a rehabilitative outdoor activity for wounded veterans recovering from their combat injures. HOW is an incredible alternative to power boat fishing and outdoor recreation that has provided very inspiring results both in physical and emotional rehabilitation.

Veteran Outdoors is a non-profit 501c3 that completes the ArmyBassAngler’s Task Force of non-profits that provides big game one-of-a-kind hunting and fishing experiences for wounded veterans with some of the country’s most experienced pros and guides all focused on the wounded hero and his story.

“We are extremely excited about Air Sports Watch joining forces with our organization. We are continually seeking one-of-a-kind companies to support our Mission and ASW fits that mold perfectly with their light weight, ionic sports watch.  If you know anything about soldiers you know that tough is not a character trait it is a requirement and we are proud to join forces with a company and product as tough as the Air Sports Watch—HOOAH,” stated President Cody Roberson. “We look forward to a long—strong relationship with Air Sports Watch and putting this incredible product into the hands of America’s finest.”

Yep, if we don’t get the rain we need the lakes will get low again!

But this is a blessing in disguise! Use this time to learn where the brush piles are and ledges , you know the areas that hold fish..Or if you have that favorite spot  go see why it is so good… Structure or what…See what holds the fish their!

Also when the lakes are low this lets the lake bottom grow up in weeds, brush and other cover that the small fish can hide in!

But let’s pray we don’t get low again but if we do well …You know what they say play the cards that were dealt ya
