I had no idea that was against the law.
I rarely use dead shrimp and if I do, it's fresh dead.

I did not know it was illegal either. I used to buy fresh bait shrimp off the docks and freeze them for river fishing.

Another fact that many anglers Ive spoken to dont know, is that it is against Texas Law to use live baitfish from a different body of water. I mean it makes perfect sense, but not many seem to know or realize it. So catching bullhead in a creek to use for Flatheads in a lake is technically illegal. Or potentially even catching perch or minnows from a pond and using them in your local lake.

I have spoken to the game warden and thats not what I was told about using bait from different waters, he told me that I could not transfer the water, that I could transfer the bait from an ice chest in my truck with a net and dump them in the Livewell of my boat after the boat is launched and water from lake brought in to boat, not saying that what your saying is wrong just what I was told Im gonna call another one and see what answer I get

I've been using those green and white boxes of "TV Shrimp" for catfish bait for decades. Is that foreign or domestic? Anyone have a box in their freezer they can check?

Box says TV brand shrimp are a product of the USA, Aransas Pass, Texas.
