LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Lufkin's own Ray Euper was the first person in the state of Texas to catch a Sharelunker Bass this season.

The bass weighed 13.2 pounds, and according to Euper, it was a monster to reel in.

“It jumped up three times and I finally got it in after about 10 minutes,” Euper said. “Then it  walked me around the boat twice, and then my girlfriend netted it. It took about 15 minutes to get the fish in."

Euper handed over his big catch to officials with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department as part of their ShareLunker program.

They'll take any fish over 13 pounds for breeding purposes.

Entries are accepted between October 1st through April 30th.
