So im fishing a tournament where you can fish any body of water. Then you take your 6 fish limit to the weigh in at 5pm which is about 45 minutes away from the closest lake. After weigh in there is rewards, eating, drinking, raffle etc. so this could be like 12+ hours of fish in livewells plus driving bumpy roads with them in the wells. My concern is a lot of dead fish? Is that a valid concern or am I over thinking it?

They do that in my area as well with a 5 fish limit. The weigh in turns into a fish fry.

What are y'all gonna do with the fish you throw back? You cant take fish out of one body of water and turn them loose in another!

I’m guessing you’ll take the fish to weigh in and then bring them back to lake you caught them. Or eta them like the guy above said

Y'all forget not everyone on here lives in Texas. Lots of places that have more than a 5 fish limit. That means tournaments there can have more than 5 fish limit

The guy lives in Robert Lee, TEXAS and says they do it in his area. And I'm just asking questions.

I have no idea where he is. If i click his profile it doesn't show where he is. Just saying not all states or tournaments are 5 fish

Chuck72 is the guy that lives in Robert Lee, TEXAS. He is the one that said they do 6 fish tourneys IN HIS AREA. Now if he is catching catfish, bluegill, crappie, etc, no problem. But if it is BASS, he might be a little over his limit.

I don’t know but the way I read the tpwd is you have to have a drained livewell and boat when you get to the lake your fishing? I have had mine inspected at AMISTAD prior to launch! So I’m wondering how a community lake tourney with an offsite weigh in could possibly result in any fish legally being released?
