Sixty-one lunker replicas representing more than 610 pounds of bass were awarded to anglers who caught and then released big fish as part of this year’s Toledo Bend Lunker Bass Program.

The replicas were awarded at the Sealy Outdoors Big Bass Splash at Cypress Bend Park on May 18 for bass caught between May 19, 2013 and May 15, 2014.

Of the 61 fish entered into the program, 41 were in the 10-pound class, 14 were in the 11-pound class and six tipped the scales at 12 pounds or more.

Eight lunkers from this year, ranging from 11.81- to 12.89-pounds, moved into the Top 100 largest bass ever caught on the Bend.

One fisherman, Darold Gleason, caught and registered three lunkers this year, bringing his total number of replicas received in the program to five.
