Default If you like catching a mess of trout to eat, you're going

to have to fight for that right. Three of us went out Saturday morning in Galveston to catch some trout for a Mother's Day fish fry. We caught 8 trout 15-19". It wasn't a slaughter by any means and no trophy fish, but enough to eat. Well, my son posted a picture of the fish in the ice chest on Facebook, and you'd have thought he killed somebody's mother. The hate and vitriol for keeping a few trout to eat was unbelievable. Chief among the haters was the guy who runs "The Speckled Truth". I'm telling you, the elitists have lumped onto trout as a catch and release trophy fish only. If you think they'll ever increase the 3-fish slot limit on the middle and lower coast, well, it won't happen without a hell of a fight, and I have little doubt that the same people will push for a similar limit on the upper coast. I eat the fish that I catch, and I won't apologize for that.....ever. The general public is supportive of catching fish and killing animals for food, but there is a sizable majority opposed to trophy fishing and hunting, so, when it comes to that, you may see them outlawed. No, it won't happen soon, but it would be stupid to allow this arrogant, condescending few to ruin it for everyone.

Sounds familiar.

I remember in my youth stationed in NM while in the usaf.

I went into a local fly shop to start leaning about the area long before the inner web. I bought some gear and asked about areas to catch eating sized fish as all they talked about was trophy water with lots of restrictions. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed the trophy water as well.

This grizzled old man behind the counter proclaimed, son you want to eat fish you go to the store and buy them.

Another reason not to be on FB. I'd tell them to get bent and post pics of those trout turned into fish tacos!

It will be hell getting the limits back to 5 again one things for sure once they take it away you rarely get it back.

For more and more, fishing and hunting is about nothing but trophies and stroking a fragile ego. I'll stack fish and enjoy doing it. If it's legal, the haters can get bent. Life's too short to argue with the facebook tards.

If you actually followed the speckled truth and understood their mission statement you would realize they are not against keeping trout. Their quest is to help preserve the trophy trout population.

They have always said ďtake what you need and leave the rest.


Cooler pics and dead fish on the bow of a boat is a that person looking for some validation.

Bucket fish! Keep them in a bucket you can easily tip over and release in case the game warden shows up.

That has to be an old picture or there are some illegal ones in there, that or not Texas. Sure looks like some 12"ers in there.


When I was a kid, we would come home with a large Igloo ice chest full of mostly 12" trout, back then a 16" trout was a big trout. We caught some on occasions, but most were 12" to 13". They were very good eating though.

I would. But I got to admit it's hard to be fried specs or flat fish. But grilling them in foil with lots of butter and spices on them can be pretty good for a change, when you have been eating fried trout every few days.

I have a problem with people who have a problem with eating game fish. Game fish you catch and eat, game animals you kill and eat, pretty simple deal.

I fish kayak tournaments, and all of those fish are kept alive and released or are donated to veterans if they die.

I had to replace my motor 3 yrs ago and two new axles last week on my boat trailer. My wife and I fished last week and I bought 2 qts of shrimp for her and 3 lbs of frozen mullet last week so $60 so I'm going to keep my limit when I catch them. F j b. And the stupid 17 - 23 slot. Undersized trout are going to die when gill hooked. I hate throwing dead undersized trout back in the water.

He talked to your son after we spoke. He wanted to clear the air because there was obviously a miscommunication, with him and your son and then you decided to start this thread.

If I fished once or twice a week I could understand the catch and release thing. We hit saltwater 2-3 times a year and when we do we want the meat. Fill the cooler. Ill take rough fish also as sheep and drum taste real good too. I dont do SM but if someone gave me **** on the dock for keeping fish within my limit Id give them hell.

Best debate came after the freeze and what could be done to protect the trout population. Limit the catch to 3 fish any size. First three fish caught and switch to another species. 3 and done, no culling. That way all those fish everyone goes thru to get an 18-24" fish is avoided and a lost less stress on the resource. I'm a biologist and it makes a lot of sense, but like we talked about it the TT guys would blow a gasket if they could not pursue that 30 incher. A lot of the time biological assessment is second to political pressure regardless of where it's coming from.

Where do all these nosy nincompoops come from? Keeping fish is just the tip of the iceberg. Some people spend 23 hours of each day in other peoples business. Frustrating!

I can get behind this. Now only if the biologist on the TPWD board would have come up with it.

Oh wait, there are none
