welcome To the TFF!


Side Note: As for catching eatable Tilapia in the Houston area I would not know. I do know that if they are caught in good water conditions they are a very good eating. food

I know tilapia is in some of the bayous like Brays Bayou in Houston TX. I seen them caught on a you tube video by Wild Life however I would not feel eating fish out of Brays Bayou would be safe due to runoff around Houston. I did see a post that someone caught one out of Lake Houston but that was the only one post. I may try to call the Texas Park and Wildlife, they should point me in the right direction.
