• Why are they talking about a putting up a limit to conserve specs?
    According to the 2010-11 TPW Outdoor Annual the state already has a limit of 5-10 specs depending on the part of the coast being fished.
    So is the issue really LOWERING the limits? Someone at TPW needs to come out and clarify the issue. P.S. There are also lenght limits on the specs to help with conservation. P.P.S. I agree that a moratorium on tournaments might be a good thing--considering the amount of cheating rumored to happen in the tourneys.

  • Don't know where these people are fishing, but we limit out on specks each time we go out in Rockport. Specks are about all we catch.

  • First the redfish and flounder. Now the trout. Before you know it, there will be limits on the amount of hard heads you can catch.

  • If the trout population is at a critical level why doesn't the TP&W ban all trout fishing tournaments until the population recovers. Oh right...

  • B.s bs bs. They have already decided to lower the limit. They are just creating a public forum to give the population an illusion that they have a say in the matter. Evey meeting I have ever been to, the public cry was the opposite of what was done. Once again it gives the general population, in the end, that our system is a joke. If you look deeper into this you will find the GCCA's lobbiest. Also, did you know that the limit on red fish has tried to increase for the past couple of years but the GCCA has lobbied against it. All because of the multi-million dollar coastal fishing tournements etc. Once again we are being led onto the train heading for the gas chambers.
