Just went fishing with my buddy in our favorite hole a pit off the levee near benoit. We put my 10 ft. jon-boat down in the pit and stated throwing beatle spins after about 3 hrs. we ended up with a nice mess of slabs.

I have been seeing reports on how tourney fishing hurts the population. Some saying 21% released survive while others say 50% survive. How can anyone come up with this ridiculas percentage when in any given tourney there may be up to 50 fish released. number 1 who follows these fish around to see the percentage? Number 2 then 25 or more fish would be floating around out there from each tourney? I don't think so. I fish a private pond alot and release every bass i catch I have yet to see ONE BASS floating.Get your facts right before making up bull crap about tourney fishing. If these fish had such a low survival rate then there would not be any hupla about catch and release. And to say a large bass has even less survival rate is ridculas also, why would replicas be ofered if everyone thought the fish would die anyway. Catch and release is good. Eating fish also good just make sure you have facts to reflct your post.

Well we may be traspassers but its better than THIEVES when these canals were built they should have been designed to keep fish from going in them if these people dont want the public in the canal to fish. Its an shame that our taxes are going to help their fish and we cant get to them. some of us dont think its fair that they can dig canals and not damn them off and alow water from public access to filter and produce fish on our tax dollars

Well I agree if we don't intend to eat the fish we catch we should try our best to keep them alive. And I have to say that if 50% of fishermen don't then HATS OFF to my fellow club members cause I can't think of one member who could care less about the fish or the areas they catch them in. And your right they are not your fish. I am very big on catch and release but I can't stand it when people hound others because they kept their limits that the law allows. You are going about it the wrong way you need to talk to the people who make the laws.And I have to say after reading your post you only make people who are against tourney fishing be less inclined to favor it. The only problem I see in my experience in fishing tourneys is the lack of respect to other boaters. Tournament fishermen tend to think that boating courtesy does not apply to them, they can't slow down for other fishermen or boats tied up against docks etc.because 'I'm in a tourney I can't waist time'.

Well probably the tagging procedure is what killed the fish. I still say if this was true I would be seeing more fish floating in this pond but i haven't. Any way there is no argument about tourney fishing versus receational fishing except that bass have at least a 79 % more chance of living than recreational fishing. Thay would be like me saying I wish there wasn't any recreational bass fishing alowed cause it hurts my tournament out come Stupid of course.

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

A comment titled: limits in response to a report titled: TOLEDO BEND TEXAS LIMITS

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

When I caught a bunch of goos I would boil it down let it cool then pull meat from bone add about as much boiled potatoes as meat and add seasoning onions peppers salt etc. and mix all together then form into patties and deep frie they are great even after freezing if you freeze them in water

Nice fish we are fishing a club tourney on 21st and 22nd of march and would love to weigh one in like that any info helps what did it bite on? Not going to ask where cause you really can't trust that type of info anyway. But do know that all fish must be returned to lake regardless of size.Would love a nice one like that on wall but not allowed.

you are opening a new can of worms. If you are going to put that fish on a hook did she really catch it with a hook for bait are used a dip net and atached it to a hook to fool people? Cause you can't use it for bait if caught any other way but line and sinker just joking lol have fun and keep posting. P.S. you have a good additude cause after the bashing you got I,d be looking for adresses to some of these guys houses guess thats why its called personals
