I find it hard to believe ' overfishing ' is the culprit. According to the University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast Research Laboratory..... " The spawning season for spotted seatrout in Mississippi is shorter than for other areas on the Gulf Coast, and the number of eggs produced per spawning event is lower. An average two-year-old fish in Mississippi can produce three to five million eggs per year, while an average two-year-old fish in Texas can potentially release 4.5 to 14.5 million eggs per year." This should put Louisiana way above in population ? ONE or TWO fish could actually actually fill all the guide limits for the state ???? I dont think overfishing is the problem. My 2cents
