TOLEDO BEND TEXAS LIMITS

Reply
I was recently told that if you launch on the texas side of toledo bend you have to abide by the texas limit on bass which is 5 bass per man. Is this true, just looking for some verification. If I'ts true then I have been in violation many many times. thanks for any input.

A fishing license is required when fishing on Toledo Bend Reservoir. Since the lake is bounded by both Texas and Louisiana, a fishing license from either state is valid for residents of either state fishing on any part of the lake (not from the shoreline!). For visitors who will want a temporary license, where you are staying (Louisiana side or Texas side) is not particularly relevant so long as you will be fishing on the lake and not from the shoreline. Therefore, generally, you may be staying in Louisiana and could fish with either a Louisiana or Texas temporary license - or vice-versa.

when fising from the bank or pier you must follow state rules. Which is 8 black bass either texas or louisiana with a possesion limit of 10 Also it does NOT matter which side you dock on either state license is exceted as long as you are on the lake and not fishing from bank or pier

The Louisiana/Texas limit on Toledo Bend is 8 bass/14" minimum with a possession limit of 16--You can fish either side or launch on either side with either license!!!

Capt john I may be wrong but I strongly think possesion limit on toledo bend is not twice the daily limit but only 10

Daily bag for all four species of black bass=8 bass in any combination. Possession limit=10.
