Just took the Survey and read the article and agree about putting a limit on these fish but, I also don’t like the fact that we are getting Liberal toward our fishing! My out look is the same with Snapper....ITS A Big AZZ Gulf and lots of water! No way I mean no way are we even touching 10% of the snapper in the Gulf.... I fly about 500Miles every two weeks and can count on one hand the number of boats I see fishing out here.......when you take the number of boat per square mile......I would be unreal! I know the East side gets more pressure with charters but Still NO WAY we are hurting Snapper!!! I cannot see it... Same with Triple tail....They migrate in and out among a huge body of water!!! Millions on Millions of fish!!!! We have no clue what kind of structures and reefs the gulf holds and what kind of numbers we are looking at!!!!

I also heard talks of them wanting to drop the trout limit on Big Lake again.... I for one will fight against this one! 15 is fine we need to leave well enough alone! Hard headed guys dont understand one body of water can only hold so many fish no matter what you do!!! You cant but 10 shoes in a shoe box...not going to happen..... So cutting limits lower will no raise trout pouplation any more and if it does we wont see it!!!....

you hit the nail on the head..i personally say raise yalls limit to 25 because much like snapper we are only touching a very small number of the trout there are....liberal fisherman will be the death of the sport...

Any change in a fish limit......should be state wide. This includes the Southeast part of the state.

My earlier post was in "reference" to the change that was made to the Speckle Trout limit a few years ago for the "Big Lake" area of the state.

Only this area had the Speckle Trout limit reduced to 15 fish per day. No other part of the state had there limit reduced.

So.......what I meant was that if any change is made to a limit on any fish....it should be state wide. Not just for one area. Unless there is a reason other than "it feel like it should be done".

Shrimp boats, commercial snapper boats, and recreational boats added together have a HUGE impact on snapper. Before the bay boat craze you could catch nice snapper at the tenaco's and north oil city, you can't do that now.



I took the survey and YES i think there should be a limit, I dont know what is should be. Why doesn't CCA get involved and do some studies? Could it be they are too busy having banquets and tournaments?

I don't think anyone or any organization has much info. on Triple Tail.

I do know that there are not near as many as a few years ago, out of Cameron.
At one time, you could catch a few anytime when coming in from fishing
offshore. Just hit some buoy's or some floating grass or trash. They are
too easy to catch.
I have seen people catch them and throw them back, cause they didn't know
what they were, or didn't know they were good to eat.

They were always a good meat fish when offshore fishing was bad.
When I was younger, just 1 of them could make a great meal for a
whole family. You just don't see the big ones anymore. But you still
see a few big uns now and then.
They were fun to sight fish. They will hit almost anything.

Hopefully they will come back to Cameron this year.
I like catching one, scaling, gutting and cutting it's
head off. Then give it to my aunt to make a great
mater gravy with it.
Just 1 or 2 is all I need. I don't like having a lot of
fish in the freezer. When I do, some always goes bad.
