Toledo Bend

Reply
 
We fished toledo bend last friday through monday(6-9). We stayed at wild wood had an awsome trip. We brought ninety fish back to the cabin the first two days, threw back around a hundred. The water temps rose and the little cove directly across from the resort was the ticket. The bass seemed to be staging up to spawn should be good fishing again this weekend. Watermelon candy senkos and watermelon red ribbits, spooks, and trick worms all did well.

The limit is 8 per person on Toledo Bend..I just saved these images to my computer. They must have had 12 people fishing!! hahaha

yeah
yeah whats the point of keeping all these fish especially when they are spawning i beet you all these fish had eggs so you killed like 400 thousand fish. good job!

I appreciate your report but it looks like there aren't any left in that spot. Maybe you should have checked the limit before posting pics. If there were more people involved and the limits were followed i apologize but from the looks of your post thats just wrong.

Thats sad to keep all those fish in spawning season.Guess there going to have restock the lake.

slick one 30 no it is not the same as keeping your "limit" of trout or your limit of any other species of fish for that mater. This guy said they brought back 90 fish the first 2 days. Now if it was just these 2 fishing they should have only brought in 32 fish in a 2 day period if I have my limit for the lake right.That puts them at 58 fish over their limit.

If there were at least 6 people in this group then they are within the law. It is still a shame that this many fish loaded with eggs were kept but, if they were within the law, all we can do is b!tch.

Jerks?
The only "jerks" on this post, are the one's attacking these guys because you "think" they might have done something wrong. They are "entitled" to keep their legal limit of fish if they wish to do so. How dare you impose your beliefs on other people! You don't own those fish anymore then those guys do. This is exactly why we don't get more good fishing reports posted on this web site. Because there are too many "jerks" attacking those that post. It just amazes me! If you have nothing good to say, just say thank you!!!! When is the last time you gave us a report and discolsed where you caught and how you caught them? I for one appreciate it when someone takes the time to post a good report instead of keeping it to themselves! Thank you guys! I'm glad you had such a fantastic trip. Keep the reports coming.

What the ????
MY GOD THE FIRST PART OF THIS POST IS CUTTERS POST FROM THIS THREAD, the second part is my response.

My god man what were you thinking? You have done nothing but given people who would love nothing more than to see your bassboat rot on it's trailer and never ever see another fish caught by anyone anywhere the ammunition they need to put out more anti fishing and hunting propaganda and you know? They would be right!!! You should never be allowed to fish in the state of Louisiana again or anywhere else for that matter. This is robbery of our natural resources plane and simple. I hope the LWF is looking for you because I will sure call them if I see you anywhere around toledo bend were I fish often. You my good man are to ignorant for words!!

CUTTER, what are you saying go back and look at this post and the responses therein. Anti's don't need any more data to try and end hunting and fishing, it would not matter if all followed the rules to the letter, they HATE you and your outdoor pursuits. The fact you say "they would be right" could not be further from the truth, that is the kind of thinking they use to ban guns, to ban this that or the other. The post here illustrate we police our own and that the vast majority of sportsmans are ethical. Stop this, as both they and you would be WRONG, what it means is if there is a violation here, the two INDIVIDUALS responsible need to be dealt with within the current confines of teh legal system, NOT THAT FISHING NEEDS TO BE OUTLAWED. A few bad actions don't indicate that the majority of the sportsman are outlaws it only illustrates that the two individuals in the picture if they caught all of these fish by themselves and within the proper time frame are over their limit. Which is a fact here that no one knows but everyone here seems to have forgotten innocent until proven guilty. Oh forgive me that is just another conservative principle put in place to protect our individual freedoms and liberty, but what the hel@, the liberals must right about that too. God help us. I bet even after you read this you will not fully comprehend what I am trying to say and mistake this post as somethign trying to defend what at least appears to be an indefensable act.

MORE POWER TO YOU,if yall were within the limits by having more people with you.some people think you are supposed to release every bass you catch,and no matter what you say they think they are right.I have a picture of 80 bass we caught over the week end,4 peopl3 saturday morning,4 people sunday morning,total of 80 in two days from 1-4 pounds,did not post because of this situation right here,took picture sunday before putting knife to them.There is a limit on the fish for a reason,and anybody who wants to keep their limit should be allowed to without idiots blasting them

re
is this why most people catch and release so guys like this can keep them all? lol im not much of a bass fisherman but i usually let go all my bass i catch. 1 because they dont eat good and 2 i dont keep um unless i mount um. call me dumb for spending thousands of dollars a year to let fish go but it passes the time and i enjoy it.

I think you hit the nail on the head.we have probably caught 4-500 bass out of one canal in the last 4 weeks and do it in this canal every year and it replinishes itself every year

I think most people are rubbed the wrong way because of all the females in this pic.Granted, we can't know for sure if these fish are full of eggs but it sure does look like the majority of them are. To me it is just senseless waste. That is just my opinion, not wrong, not right, just opinion.
I do not know which side of the fence you are on about the limit changes in Big Lake but...if two guys posted pics of 90 4-5 pound trout (in April or May) and said they caught them in 2 days on Big Lake, would you congratulate or bash them?
People are just very opinionated when it comes to keeping a butt-load of egg laiden bass.

2day 2man possesion limit
If it is only the two of them they are 11 fish over the possession limit for a 2 day trip. I counted 75. Daily limit is 8, daily possesion limit is 16. 2 dudes 2 days total possesion limit 64 fish.

For me it's not so much how many fish they have it is the species. It is hard to keep a good continuous healthy bass fishery.

Congratualtions on haveing a successful trip, but to keep that many bass is quite ridiculous. It has nothing to do with being jealous of someone else, but it has everything to do with overfishing a strained species. There are not many GOOD bass fisheries around anymore. Toledo Bend is one of them. If everyone on this sight were to do what these two have done that place would not be what it is...

But to each his own I guess. My father and grandfather just raised me different. They taught me to have respect for the resources, and never harvest or take more than I need, and the importance of throwing some back so the next time you go they'd be there.

Excellent trip, but you keep that up and your kids nor mine will not be able to do the same.

Man
Ya know if these guys are over there limit its one thing, but they also said they released another 100, so i have to think that there is a group of them that went up there..

But, some of you guys need to think a bit.. Just b/c u think its the right thing to do to let go spawning bass gives u no right to cry about others that don't. Look i let go my share of them but i keep a fair amount too.. but catch and release is a choice its not forced. You guys need to relax, u can't force what you feel should be done onto others..

Look in the summer tons of specks people catch are full of eggs, what's the difference? Nobody makes a habit of letting those go..

You guys need to check your emotions and realiz that is whats ddriving your opinion that you are tied to how you feel about bass. Doesn't give you the right to hammer everyone that keeps a spawner..

Why assume that they are over their limit???????? Some of you guys have them convicted and hung already! I know that if I only keep two or three bass on a trip, with the number of times I fish a year, I keep a hell of a lot more fish then these guys have kept in a weekend. They might not keep fish all the time. It really doesn't matter because they have the right to keep all the fish they want as long as they are within the law. Quit judging people because you think your right. Some of us enjoy and appreciate the reports and the information these guys were willing to share. Your probably the same guys that wont' tell anyone where you caught last week! That's my point! Relax a little. Enjoy the post and use the information that they so graciously provided.
Reply
Not so
Big Country i believe that you interpreted that possession limit wrong. That doesn't mean you are allowed to catch two limits daily. It means at no time are you allowed to have twice your limit in any single day. Its a possession limit. So you can't have more than two limits while in the field regardless of how long out are there. Could stay a week and each person can only leave with 16. In no circumstances are you really allowed to double your daily limit in that same day..

Possession
To me the picture appears to show two (maybe three unless the camera was on auto) individuals in possession of way over the limit for bass.

If I'm in possession of over the limit, I better have several others with me or have those fish tagged with the proper information for the other fishermen that caught the fish.

Maybe they were all there and there were five holding the camera-after all most guys fight over who won't be in the photo.

I agree with the wabbits post!

the facts
All these fish were caught by a total of 8 people. The reason there are only two people in the photo is because they had the two biggest fish!
Reply
For the Dummies that will always stay "Uninformed"
The Possession Limit means: One person that is properly licensed, can keep(on Toledo Bend) a total of 16 bass period. For you lesser informed, that means that one can catch 8 fish in one day. NO MORE. He can catch 8 more the next day. No More. If he stays 10 more days he can catch and keep 0. Do you understand 0? The possession limit is what you have in your possession.
The only way "out" is to eat 8 of your fish each night and you can possess 16 when you go home, but you can NEVER 'possess' more than 16! That's in the freezer, filleted on ice, or smuggled in your underwear! 16.
The same law applies to saltwater species. One can possess 50 speckled trout at any one time and 10 redfish at any one time, but NEVER on the same day!
Reply
Possession
And to reiterate, these guys may well have been 8 total. If so, that day's possession could only have been 64 for all of them, and no matter how many days they stayed and fished, they could not take home any more than 16 each!

RED SNAPPER
This kind of mentallity is EXACTLY why the Red Snapper has a LIMIT OF 2. And WHY you have a regulated season. SO PLEASE continue to illegally harvest game fish species until LDWF imposes a 2 fish limit on Bass that can only be kept from September to December.

Look I have no problem with going out with 4 guys and wabash cannon balling any species of fish but have a little consideration for the Largemouth Bass. ESPECIALLY one’s that are spawning or on the bed. Why in the h3ll do you think LA has a program that will make a replica of your fish if it is over a certain size? SO IT CAN REPLINISH THE FISHERIES! There is no comparison to the amount of Sea Trout or any fishable saltwater species population to the Largemouth bass population. Unfortunately they are NOT as abundant as saltwater species or any other game fish for that matter. Guy’s who own private bass fishing lakes LOVE GUYS LIKE THIS. The more people do this to a fishery the more customer’s they get.

As far as saying who gives a sh!t do what you do and post blah blah blah. That’s real sportsman like. No wonder these people have problems with trespassing and the like. People just do whatever and could give a rat’s pa-toot about the next person or the next generation or the resources or respect for someone’s land. NO WONDER there are not any local places I can take my 10yo nephew to fish.

I enjoy people harvesting game and catching fish as much as anyone could and seeing pictures of their great time. If they share some helpful info EVEN BETTER. But even for 3 people that is GD ridiculous. Don’t know about yall but the last time I put a fish on ice they turn a lighter color… none of these fish have lost that much color. So I hope they had at least 10 LICENSED people with them.

If they did then that is FANTASTIC! If they didn’t they need a ticket and some privileges revoked.

It’s the end of the day… my crazy medicine is wearing off. I’ll shut the bleep up. I just make sure I know what the Rules and Regs are and so should everybody else. I use to freshwater fish only. I’ve lived in several different states and fished many lakes and rivers where the Bass fishery is sh!t. Toledo Bend is an excellent fishery and to see someone break the law really gives me the red @ss as it should everyone who pays for a license and follows the rules. I have no respect for people like Vic. And IF these guys broke the law by possessing more than the legal limit. WHICH he just admitted they did. Then I will be the first to call their bluff. Somebody quick spray this soapbox out from under me and ice this keyboard down…

Almost forgot. If i get sometime this evening I will catch a bass take a pic post it, put it on ice for 24hrs then take another picture of it. It will not hold the color like those fish have.

Big Bear, Do you actually think WLF can do anything? Who says they're guilty? Just because 2 guys took a picture with 90 bass doesnt make them guilty. Sure, if 2 guys would have gotten caught on the spot with this amount of fish, they would be in deep %@*#, but that didnt happen did it?

Geez
Country, think about this. U obviously don't understand the law. Did u not previously post that they were over the limit b/c the possession limit was daily limit of 16 per person so they were allowed 32, each??

Now u say they are over the limit cause they had more than 8 each. It says no more than 8 while on the water, they weren't on the water.

They are allowed 16 in their possession. they are not on the water man. Having 8 per day on the water is correct. But they are allowed 8 each day up to a maximum of 2 days. They were there 3 days. They are allowed 16 each. Now they wouldn't be allowed 16 each transporting those fish on the water, such as leaving where they were camping by boat.

Man u don't understand the law as u have changed your interpretation three times alone on this post, so quit trying to witchunt these guys. U are the one that don't know the law

I was there too!!
There were actually 48 of us fishing. We each caught 2 fish on the first day, half of us (24) caught 4 fish on the second day, one quarter caught one and the other 6 guys caught 5 each. The third day one third of the original 48 left, the other third slept in and the last third caught 3 each. We ate 32 fish the first night and went to Denny's for the Grand Slam on the second night. Those fish were fillet'd and the eggs were fried in lard. We also smoked 36 packs of Marlboro and used 12 rolls of toilet paper.

And drank 4 kegs of Natural Light, and 3 bottles of liquor!

I posted the law.
I posted the law.

I posted the law straight from LDWF’s website. I didn’t change the interpretation. The amount of people changed. The fish on the table do not appear to have been on ice. Unless they left the fish on the table over night. All the fish in the picture appear to have been caught the same day. It also appears to me in the picture they are still “on the water.” Your interpretation is that if I am in a boat I can only possess 8 but if I am fishing from land I can possess 16 by taking a few steps away from the water or walking each fish to the camp house. That doesn’t make any sense, but neither did the majority of my rants.

If you post/show a picture that may appear to be a picture of potentially illegally harvest game or fish you may want to elaborate. Heck the state of South Carolina has been trying to pen charges on Michael Phelps just because he took a bong hit in a photo graph. I’m just saying a little more information would prevent assuming ignorant @sshole forum posting frog licking cat chasing hard working tax paying egg sucking no fish catching idiot lesbian like myself from pointing fingers and making a total jackass of myself. I already do that plenty on my own, Thanks.

Well guys I can give you an expert point of view about fishin up here on the bend. This time of year its not uncommon to catch that many fish in a single day....and very very easy to catch that many in two days. Fish are just catchable right now. So its not gonna ruffle to many feathers in the legal department that the group of fellows caught that many. Granted that might not should have keep that many for spawning reasons but they did not even put a dent in the population where they were fishing its just stacked with 16 to 18 inch fish. You actually get tired of catching them after a while. I pick up more of a jealous tone from most of you posters on this topic....so ease up and either go fish or shut the FUK up.

Good Job
Nice catch boys. I like to see youth into fishing. Bass are a renewable resourch. The hurricane's proved that. They went to a 14" minimum after Andrew almost 20 years ago in the entire spillway region. Which runs from the muddy intracoastal all the way to New Iberia. The fishing has gotten worse. You can olny put so many chickens in one pen without increasing food supply. Enjoy your fish DONT LET THEM ROOT IN THE FREEZER. Give them to someone who cant fish anymore. Like the elderly. Nice job boys. I dont catch over the limit and hope that yall didnt. Yall never said how many of you were in the group. But I believe it was more than two. If not yall were setting the hook all day to throw back as many as yall said.

i sure wish one of em would explain or say how many people were fishing.

they must be doing something special,,,, thats alot of bass!!

Great job.
Proof of a successful fishery at Toledo Bend. Keep'em if you got'em. That's why the state grows 'em.
You folks are kidding, right?
Do you realize the huge number of bass that could possibly exist in a 196,000 acre reservoir and how insignificant 90 fish are to that total population?
I didn't think so.

Looks like me and my lil cuz will be sharing a cell with you guys cuz as soon as they find that pic i posted on what will remain an unnamed social website of 12yo cousins first ever duck hunting trip where he is the only person in a pic of 40 ducks all killed on opening day thee gonna call wlf on me too...

this is the reason you will never see me post anything on here, my grandpa is a fourth generation trapper, i know the ins and outs of just about all the waterways south of I-10 from biloxi ms to pecan island la...i've hunted fished trapped taken pictures of and observed just about every game species we have in LA...I have countless pics of just me with several man limits...did i catch trap or shoot them all? NO...do i go out of my way to let every cotton pickin retard who has a pc and access to the internet know that just maybe i may have possibly wanted to take a pic of me with a large amount of game to send to a friend who is serving this great nation in a far away land...Hell mutha effin NO!!!! its none of your dam buisness...if you spent more time fishin huntin trappin or just away from this addictive brain washing drug we call the internet then would would find yourself a little happier and maybe a little more respectful...b/c seriously i would rather these 2 youngster go out and kill 50 deer 200 ducks 1000 rabbits catch 6000 bass all full of eggs in the prime of spawning season shoot 2 pelicans and just before calling it a day bulleye a few a dozen hogs, than to hang out at a local bar get wasted jump in their 4x4 truck and run over a family member b/c ppl like the ones on this site called wlf over a pick with little info associated with it and these 2 get all of their outdoors man privileges revoked cuz some schiesty LA judge agreed with these self righteous priks that think its ok to drag a fish by it jaw with a sharp hook to the boat just to say look ma i gots me a biggin and then toss him back... at least i put the lil fella out of his misery and on to my family's plate

Congrats on the catch fellas and dont listen to all of the jealous, i cant go fishin so im gonna get on this website and harass everyone who post their success, arseholes who are hating on your lunch

lol, I agree with you Old Timer 100% and that is rare!!

Country you realize you are trying to say these guys broke the law b/c the fish don't appear to have been on ice.

Here is what i am sayin. If they caught 8 one day, brought em to the camp but em on ice. Then did the same the next. They are legal. If they did it another way, like caught 16 in a day and claimed the two day possession. They are outlawing. You can't prove shiet from the photo so why are you diggin so hard. Must a got bullied as a kid

This is the third year that I post my opinion on the topic, and these picture are the reason why.
I wish the LDWF would change the law and not allow keeping ANYTHING during its mating/spawing/breeding period. I know some will argue about over population if this were done, but I don't think that would happen with the number of outlaws this states has. This is just my opinion, so if anyone would like to debate the subject maturely, I'm all for it, but don't bash me for my opinion.

I just don't understand why there are regs against this in some spicies but not others. For example, crabs; can't keep them when the female is full of babies, frogs; closed season during mating period. So why can you keep a bass that is either full of eggs, or has already spawed out and now will not be there to protect her fry.

I also agree with the person that said that these fish were not in an ice chest. No way were these fish on ice over night. NO WAY.

I was on the bend from the 5th through the 8th and did just about as good as these guys. I was a part of a group of 10 and guess what!!!! we do it annually. (I know I know, we all need to be crucified, and if this economy keeps going down hill you will start to see food put on families tables however is necessary) these fish have definitly been on ice, if you fish on toledo bend and have seen the colors of the fish coming out of that clear water you would understand why these fish have been on ice. good catch guys, dont let all these biologists wanna be's hate on yall boo-yaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Jemery...figured it would be you to bash my for my opinion even after I said it's only MY OPINION.

I never said anything about fish out a spieces, I just think that if the LDWF puts a restriction on some spieces during its reproductive period, then why can't they do it for all spieces?

BTW, I have a GREAT life, beautiful wife, couple of great kids, good paying job, a bunch of toys, couple of boats, and enough self esteem to not worry about people on this site too much. GREAT life.

I can't point out males from females in the picture, however I can usually tell the difference when it is in my hands, and then it is still hard. I am not against keeping fish and the reason why I think it should be closed during the spawn is from the exprience that I had on a fishing trip where we kept a bunch a what we thought were male buck bass, when we opened them up (all were in the 12-13 inch range) all had eggs. So it is very hard to tell and that is precisely my point which you help me make....Thanks again.

Ok
Rooster, so do you think they should ban keeping speckled trout and redfish during their spawn??

I don't think anybody throws them back cause they have eggs.

Look i have to say there is something special about the bass, the way they spawn and gaurd there bed and all. I let alot of them go during the spawn, something just feels off about keeping a fish gaurdin its nest full of eggs. But i keep some as well..

But i don't give anybody a hard time for keeping what they want
Reply

TA... I don't really have an opinion on reds and trout because I don't know enough about thier spawning habits. I do think though that it only hurts to take bass during the spawn. I understand that some fish have to be taken in order to have a healthy fishier, but I don't see any benefit in taking fish full of eggs or protecting their young. As far as reds and specks go, my question to you is, is it easier to catch them during their spawn? If so then I would have no problem seeing the LDWF restricting it as well.

I didn't say anything about the guys in this post keeping fish, I keep A FEW to. Not during the spawn, and only within my limits. IF these guys were over then that is a whole different story.

Why would any of you have a problem with the LDWF restricting the keeping of reds, and speck when all you guys on here make it look so easy to catch them any time you want. I just say don't catch them when they are reproducing and them hammer the crap out of them later.
Reply
Well
The reason i would have a problem with is because what is the reason to prohibit it? WE have no end of specks and reds, why prohibit anything just to give some people a warm fuzzy feeling inside?

Now as for bass, they are at more of a disadvantage so there is something unique. But again, are populations hurting? If it is having an impact then i would not complain about restrictions. Honestly i wouldn't care if they prohibited keeping them in March, even though that is my favorite time to fish, to help the fishery. I might even vote for it. But i ain't gonna say a word to someone for keepin them when it is allowed. Its a person al choice..

And like i said i am not in favor of putting restrictions on things simply to give people a warm fuzzy.

Something else to think about. There is a commercial market for crabs and frogs, so that may have some impact on the rules for them..

Good point TA...never looked at the business side of the frogs and crabs.

I don't think they do a very good job of keeping population numbers of fish (probably a very hard thing to do).
All I'm saying is that it can't be helping the population, it may not be hurtint it, but it dam sure can't be helping it, and I'm all in favor of helping the population if I can.

Yeah i hear ya, and like i said it wouldn't bother me, like i said there is somthing special about the bass to me, and i am in favor of helping it. If they did some research and showed that it would really help. I would say to go for it. I wouldn't even mind it w/out the research but again that is just me and my choice..

But again i think the guys who get on here and make all the comments and whine and put people down is out of line. It ain't the way to approach the situation..

From the looks of these things
I was in Toledo with a diff group last weekend, and smoked the fish just like these guys did. And like the man says the fish were staging and getting ready to spawn. We saw only about 4 females on beds, the rest were males. and from the looks of his picture maybe a third of the fish were females. Besides Toledo Bend is an amazing fisheries this lake has such an amazing amount of fish, it needs to be fished and some fish kept. If biologist thought this was a problem the limit would be 3 or 4, or put a slot into effect.

What's the difference?
What's the difference in keeping bass during the spawn than keeping them anyother time of the year. Just think about that.

If you keep a fish during the spawn, yeah that keeps that fish from laying eggs and not having that crop of bass-fry that year. But if you would let your fish go and wait untill after the spawn to keep them, well those fish won't spawn ever again so you just now got rid of a crop of fish it would produce the next year.

Plain and simple with following the regulations that are given to us, that have been decided by studies to see what would be the best, it does not matter what time off the year you keep a fish (bass), Fisherman can't hurt the pop. if they follow the rules.

For the people who say that bass fishing is not ass good as it used to be ya'll just can't fish. I have only seen it get better over the years. For all I care they could bring the limit up to 15 bass and drop the size to 10in. in the areas that have size restrictions. A 10 in bass taste a lot better than a 15in bass, in fact I only keep bass that are between 10 and 15in, and I'll cull bass if I have some larger than 10in to keep another 10in. By the way for the people who think size restrictions help the bass pop. ya"ll are wrong. It does not hurt a thing. There should be a slot limit, now that would help the pop., but that will never happen because of all the "BASS" people who need to win some silly tournament.

"Slot Limit"
Redbuck --- Slot limits do not always work. Ask somebody that fished Lake Concordia during the slot days. A fish in the slot would weigh 4 - 5 lbs and a fish over the slot would weigh 3 - 4.
Reply
slot limit
That's why the slot limit should be small, not long enough to allow a 3lb fish or larger to be legal.

Just to let whoever cares to know I can care less about tournament fishing. I just want the best fishing there is.

I think the Wildlife and Fisheries should issue tags the same as they do for deer!!!! A certain amount tags for male bass and a certain amount tags for female bass. When a bass is caught, a tag should be attached to the ear of fish!!!! When you run out of tags you quit fishing!!!!!!

I counted 74 bass in the second pic. If those fish average 2.5 pounds each that's around 60 pounds of fillets. Are they considering feeding the family of 16 (with the lady that just gave birth to 8 kids).

ronfishunt
Have to agree with ronfishunt--way to many fish to cut. And it has nothing to do with someone being jealous of these guys catching a ton of fish. I congratulate them on an outstanding trip to Toledo but the fact that they cut all of those fish especially when the spawn is in full swing just makes me cringe. You can quote all the scientific data about fishing not hurting the population of fish on a lake but if he would have release 25 of those fish there would be 25 more fish in the lake today!!

This is REFRICKENDICULOUS! Nice catch! Nice Fish! Enjoy! Why fish if ya can't hurt them every now and then? I am no bass fisherman, I understand ya have to respect them, but, good gravy, gimme a break. My theory is this, hunting season is over, good time to be a deer or a duck, summer fishing is here, bad time to be a trout! I will hate a trout till the fall, stack them til fall, absolutely crush them til fall and post them. If I was a Bass fisherman, I would hate them too. It's a shame ya'll fish and can't keep anything out of fear of being bashed by another fisherman.

To Old timer
So many but the best was the Fin and Feather none better in Louisiana. Ton of guides band on Friday and Sat. Seafood buffet a great place when it was wide open. Now a dump as was last time I went by hope someone reopens like before. Last time I fished the lake I had a prop problem and there was no place to bring my boat. Where did all the fisherman go Lake Fork, Mexico and Venice why well I sure you know the answer. Common sense if you have a lake in the middle of know where fishing has to be great not just good and I ask all what makes fishing great. I can tell you what kills fishing pressure. But TB in the spring will always be a special place. TB lake level has not helped also and may be more of a problem then pressure. I am sure no expert but I feel catch and release is good for a lake. Never did like fish from a freezer.

captjs
there ya go! I think you hit it on the head with the don't like frozen fish. Me neither. I would rather eat something that slept in the lake the night before. But my thing is keep what you can use and release the rest. If you have to keep that many fish at one time--it looks like you have trouble catching fish the rest of the year. I also think that it is a maturity issue and as a person matures as a "SPORTSMAN" the urge to keep everything you are legally allowed to subsides and one begins to respect the resources a whole lot more.

Louisiana lakes are up against Texas who do you think will get the fisherman to come to their lake.

TB ZAPATA, Texas — The consensus among 109 Bassmaster Elite Series anglers ranks Falcon as the best lake ever for a BASS tournament site, and predicts no record in the book is safe this week at the Lone Star Shootout, presented by Longhorn.

Lake Fork Bass Fishing Trip Info
Quality fishing months on the Lake Fork are January thru March. Quantity fishing months on the Lake are April thru July and October thru November.
Lake Fork's current regulation on largemouth bass...
16"to 24" slot limit. ( Bass over 16" and less than 24" must be returned to Lake Fork.)
5 bass limit, only one bass per day 24 inches or greater may be retained.

I get to fish very little and enjoy catching them as much as eating them, so these guys might do this once a year and eat all these throughout the year, so what theres no difference in that or people who catch treir limit once or twice or week, as for catching and releasing I believe its a personall OPINION and if you like it then do what floats your boat, on the flip side if was just two they should be prosecuted for breaking the law, but since it was 8 and they with in legal limits, let em be and La swamper enjoy your fish fry

Amsted lake
Look at what happened at Lake Amsted in Del Rio, Tx a few years ago. 3 Years ago BassMaster elite series went to Amsted and just crushed the big fish with numerous 4 day sacks of 5 fish per day over 90 lbs. Thats over a 4 lb average. Last year when they returned the winning weight was 76 lbs. They did a story on how all of these people were going down there to fish and keeping everything they caught. It was common for people to clean limits of fish up to 9 lbs. What was the result......more pressure, more fish being kept and now its harder to catch fish. Now what these people are doing is LEGAL just like what Swamper and his friends did was legal. But there is a fine line between being legal and being unethical. I would like to congratulate him on an excellent trip! I think that he and all of his friends kept all of these fish legally! I also think that in doing so they crossed that fine line and were unethical and their veiws on keeping everything will change as they mature.

Hmmmm
Catch and release was not even thought of until tournment fishing started,the release part was NOT done to be ethical it was done hoping to catch the same bass because it was a money thing.So my point is ethical is in the eye of the beholder!! Like a butt-hole everybody has one but it seems that this site is the honey hole of -----hole's--

Plus release of bass has a mortality rate,so i guess its more ethical to release a fish to die out of the frying pan!!

Im not crying D.A. I just have a difference of oppinion than you do. And instead of you discussing your oppinion with me like an adult---you attack me like a little kid. Whats up with that? Grow up dude! If you think what you did is right then say that. Don't bash everyone that has a different view of things. If you have read my comments, I have congratulated you on the catch--that is a great trip especially on Toledo. I Just have a different veiw of what you did with em after you caught em. No hard feelings!! I'm Not calling you names or attacking you--just stating my oppinion. And there are a lot of people with the same view as you--and alot with the same view as me. And there will always be different views on this sort of thing. But just like you had the legal right to catch and keep all of those fish----I have a legal right to tell you that I don't agree with keeping that many during the spawn. Welcome to freedom of speech---Makes this country great; doesn't it. The way you are attacking everyone that disagrees kind of takes your credability away. So be a man, come out and just say you don't give a rip about what anyone thinks, or about conservation, or about anything other than stacking up a big pile of fish and pounding on your chest. But, if I thought you didn't care about what other people thought, you wouldn't be defending what you did so viciously. So maybe your conscience has made you think twice about it.

Was it legal?
La Swamper maybe I missed this in the thread but just how many people caught and brought back 90 bass to the bank?
I see two persons in the pic's and maybe a third taking the photo unless the camera was on a tripod. If 2 or 3 persons took out 90 Black Bass in one day from a public fishery in the State of Louisiana they are poachers. For the catch pictured on the picnic table to be legal you would have needed 5 fisherman fishing two days. If that is the case Great trip.

Catch and release
trouteater: Catch and release was not even thought of until tournment fishing started,the release part was NOT done to be ethical it was done hoping to catch the same bass because it was a money thing.

Actually catch and release was started as a PR move to save tournaments from being outlawed. Back in the day, bass tournaments would have a big fish fry when the tournament was over with all of the fish weighed in. The locals got jealous about seeing all of those fish out of "their" lake being eaten. They went to their police jurors and and to their legislators and were about to outlaw bass tournaments on "their" lake. The people running tournaments at that time saw this coming and offered to release all of their tournament caught fish as a peace offering to the locals so they could continue to have tournaments. This worked and catch and release at tournaments was born.
Then as the years wore on the tables were turned and the tournament fishermen became jealous when they saw locals catching and keeping fish to eat from the local lakes where they held tournaments. Now the tournament fishermen wanted everyone to practice catch and release and they went to the police jurors and legislators and, this time, length limits were born as a compromise.
So you see. It's all a great compromise. One man's ceiling is another man's floor.
