Following the "10.00" trend... all lake records state wide have now been
modified and rounded to the nearest pound. This sport continues to get more and more watered down. Things should get really interesting when claiming a new lake record.

Why in the world would that need to be done? Makes no sense.

I think they are having trouble with their software. I had turned in a record for one of my high school kids and it took a while for it to show up after they told me the website had been updated. Once it did show up on the website, it was rounded off to 10.00, I figured it may have just been on that lake, but evidently it's their whole system giving them trouble.

Yep, just round them off on Fork now. 23 1/2 or 24, it's all good.

Cool Brand Media is a company that was started about a month before the fishing report contract came up for renewal last August. The company is one lady who has little to no real fishing knowledge. She is using a guy with limited fishing knowledge who lives in Missouri to write/compile the TEXAS fishing reports.

It seems to me that there is no one left in the TPWD Communications Department who has expertise in fishing. If there were, I don't believe they would be publishing these reports. I guess the folks reviewing the reports don't have the knowledge to see how rediculous they are and how many mistakes are published every week.


The solution to any problem - work, love, money, whatever - is to go fishing, and the worse the problem, the longer the trip should be. --John Gierach

That’s truly great!

For the record, I have never read a “fishing report”..but it still kinda burns my [censored] knowing I am helping fund a program that is a complete sham. Also, knowing it is Texas Government approved, kinda sends a bad message.
