I was reading up online some areas around Houston to go and do some bass fishing and I kept coming up wit hall of these consumption advisories about damn near every drop of freshwater within a 100 mile radius. What are the real risks of eating what you catch and are there some lakes or rivers that are better or worse to go to?

If there's a consumption advisory I wouldn't chance it. Fish for fun and buy fish at the supermarket.


Catch and release. The dream - to catch one of every species of Freshwater fish in our great state! If only I can resist Carp...

here is the link to the list TPWD puts out on lakes that have consumption advisories.

https://tpwd.texas.gov/regulations/...ons/fish-consumption-bans-and-advisories

I would not eat any fish from a lake that is a near a big city or that has city treated sewage coming into it. The OK department of wildlife used to have a video I can no longer find that showed how to fillet a fish removing the skin and discarding the belly meat. According to them this removed 90% of toxins like they have in their lakes next to coal power plants. If you fillet your fish and catch them from a rural lake you will be fine.

I would also not eat fish from the grocery store as that stuff is for sure bad.
