Traditionally, a lot of guides would go to Aquilla to get their shad. I’ve never done it though

In Texas, you can no longer get baitfish in one body of water and transport to another for use. If used or transported, has to be used in the same body of water.

Try around the boat ramps. I've always been able to find a few around the ramps. Then work the banks from there and back to the ramp.

shad are pretty much everywhere early in the morning. Find a cove and just start casting on drops and you'll find a bunch of em!

Dang! You may be right Mike. I was unaware that they may have removed that restriction. I am usually pretty thorough on the publishings. But guess I missed this somehow. Shad are one of the baits I use most often.

So, what is the readout, as I was under the same impression as Mr. TG. I've also heard that if you purchased bait in a bait shop- you needed to retain a receipt for the purchase.

Mike, the first bullet about "Live fish, including personally caught live bait, in or abroad a vessel in water body from where the fish were caught. Personally caught live bait can be used in the water body where it was caught." in your posting is where I got my post from above about the "No transport to another body of water other than the same body of water". I think we are kinda in agreement. I may not have posted, or worded my post very well. Sorry about that. I was looking for that exact wording on the screen shot you posted. But couldn't find it on the TP&W web sight for some reason. I'll just keep using the bait I catch from the waters I currently am fishing from for that day, I guess hmmm. Whitney shad fished in Whitney. Waco shad in Waco. Ect. just to be safe. grin

it says live bait cannot be transported in water from one body of water to another. it does however not say the bait cannot be transported. if you use treated tap water, and keep.the proof of the treatment you are good to go!

I have been checked with treated water, and it wasn't an issue. I also checked with tpwd. because I put on a flathead tournament, where all anglers use live bait. and they said treated tap water, and you are good to go.

Wow, didn’t know i was going to create such a stir! Basically, ya’ll are just saying this law is to prevent transporting zebra mussles? Or simply said, you can use bait from Aquilla, but the water they are transported to Whitney in can’t be from Aquilla?

That is about as clear as mud, if its the water and not the bait itself, the statements need corrected.
