Spring '04 ???
I think this was in the early spring of '04. The '04 fishing regulation booklet does not have the 25" Trout limit restriction in it.

I do remember these pictures ...because I had fished that same day. I had seen 2 wade fishermen just North of Commissary Pt. fairly early in the morning. That could have been them or some other people because I only saw 2 people????

I kind of doubt these picture were taken at Big Lake that day because I and another boat that I talked with, had poor luck catching fish that day.

limits
i dont think this was the whole reason for the new limits, too many charter services on the lake and the clients are all about getting the LIMIT. I'm sure it makes the guides' jobs a lot easier now anyways.

Spawn size
Isn't it true that when females reach a certain size they do not breed anymore? maybe not, I'm no expert.

That is excesive non-sense to keep that many big females with eggs, they don't give a #hit they are from Texas. You can still have a great day like that fishing releasing them back,keep a trophy to mount and that is it, they son;t taste as good as an 12" anyway. pay them the same respect they gave you that day and let them live to get bigger.
