Just going to lead to more dead big fish.

The only change looks like the the online registration thing. They're not going to add fish to the program outside the 1/1 -3/31 window they've always had. Shouldn't really impact the fish any more than usual unless you have to take them to some predetermined place to weigh them. At least that's what I got from reading it.

I don't know about that....the SAL I caught last year was denied because it was not genetically pure. From the new program forward, it would qualify.

It also rewards the fish in different weight categories. 8+ is prize worthy.

I like the idea of allowing anglers to register their 13 + and keep them in a tank at the weigh in station where proper care can be taken so that they may be, after wards, just released back into the lake.

The program is a joke IMO! Just leads to killing big bass! Weigh them take pictures then let them go to live on.

Agreed, stop tournement fishing. Oh, wait that is not the same or is it?

I believe more good has come from the TPWD's program than any tournament, not saying you fish tournaments, just weighing the odds.

Just look at how many sharelunkers have been killed because of it!! It doesn't help produce bigger bass. Let's see CA doesn't have any program like this and will alway produce bigger than Texas ever will!! A 13lb bass in CA probably won't even get turned in!! Lake Ray Robert lake record bass is dead because of it! Most tournament fisherman take well care of there catch and the death rate in tournaments are very low!!

Here we go again. The same old arguments... I like that they are dropping the weights to get the numbers up and handling it as catch/report/release for those. They'll get better idea of the numbers of larger fish.

If trout would survive in Texas lakes the Bass would be bigger. Trout is a key meal for bass in California.

was a publicity stunt in the beginning that oddly enough worked for a few years but nowdays its useless and should be discontinued imo.

How will these changes lead to more dead big fish? SAL will still only attempt to spawn fish caught during the same period of time as always. They're just attempting to change the program to year-round data collection through angler participation. Sounds like they may not even pick fish up outside the narrow spawning window, any longer. For all those who have said they wouldn't donate a fish to the program, now you can donate the info on the fish while leaving her right where she is.

I see some more positives here.

Converting the hatchery to 100% SAL offspring. These are special fish with the potential to grow large very fast. Folks will say they've never proven SAL offspring to grow larger than any other pure florida bass. They've never been proven to grow smaller, either. I'll take hatcheries full of them!

Spawning the intergrades and stocking right back into the donating fishery. No more rejection like Steez' fish and, offspring from a proven beast are produced. How can that be a bad thing?

Of course, if you're simply against the SAL program, none of this matters.
