Pretty sure people needing a guide will avoid these 3 like a plague. More $$$$ they will lose and don't ya know their families and friends are disappointed. flush_2

Thats a purdy good hit, plus what TPWD will charge them for civil restitution fees...I doubt if it happens again!

They likely figured the odds of getting caught and the actual fines, then decided the risk/reward ratio was worth it from a business stand point. I would have liked to see them permanently DQd from any fishing/hunting license issued by the state of Texas.

What a joke for such a flagrant violation of the regs. mad

Poor judgement by the judge to give them the minimum considering they are guides and they were under investigation which makes me believe this was not the first time they did this. Clients should be fined also. I hope TPWD steps up and the restitution fines are stiff enough to bring true justice. Hope this case introduces a law where the guides also lose their license for a minimum of a year

just abt every service performed in texas is regulated by and overseen by the govt, from barbers, to auctioneers, to plumbers, to hvac contractors to electricians.
There are NO requirements whatsoever, and no oversight whatsoever to become a licensed freshwater fishing guide in the state of texas.. just go down to the local wallmart or academy, present your drivers license, passport, greencard, whatever you have , pay the fee, I think its abt 150.00 and PRESTO. !!!!
your in bidness.. congrats!!!
No insurance requirements, no background checks, no experience required... hell they dont even ask if you have a boat , much less a safe one.

career criminal, convicted felon, new boat owner..,,not cpr certified, cant swim, bad heart, cant see, no matter. your in !!!
ALL ABOOOARD!!!! haha

COMING SOON! .. THE STICKLE HOOK " the stay level sickle hook". sits level in the water with all knots.! Provides better hook sets and more natural jigging motion. No more adjusting the knot, gluing , or tying loop knots that cause the hook point to tangle in the loop, or worse knick the line.. The jighook that will make all others obsolete !

Who in the world needs 608 crappie? I get that there were 12 people but still. At what point do you just say "done"?
