I am not sure how many of you are on facebook but it looks like there is a big movement with guides only keeping 20 fish instead of 25 per person for trips. This is due to the increased fishing pressure on lakes around here and the negative impact it is and could have on the fishing. What is everyone's thoughts on this? I am all for it and commend the guides doing it and hope all follow along. Guess with time we will see who is really about conservation.

I really think it is a good idea on the hard fished lakes like Fork and Pines. They will catch fish but only put 20 under the knife.

With the pressure that Fork is getting I think it’s a good idea, especially with the size of fish that are coming out of that lake right now.

The limit laws should be changed if research can back it up. I am all for conservation and for keeping fisheries producing to healthy levels. I commend anglers and guides that decide to do this. However I think a guide should make their customers aware of their personal limits before booking the trip. Just my two cents. 2cents

If they are doing it on Pines and Fork December thru the end of February they are not allowed to return any crappie to the water. You have to keep all of them up to your limit, then stop catching them. Lots of fish come from deep water and can't get back down, this is the reason for the rules change in winter. I know the game wardens on Pines used to sit on top of the dam and use binoculars to catch folks releasing small crappie. No, I was not the one who got the ticket.

I hear you banker. From what I am seeing most are letting their customers know and if they want to cancel, they are refunding deposits.

Live scope has changed the game. Limits were established when you couldnt see the fish. Its a harvest now.

Have only done 2 Crappie Guided trips, both on Lake Fork. Both times we ended up with 43 fish.

With the size of crappie in that Lake, 20;40 is more than enough fillets IMHO


I'd Tack That!!

I’d be all in on that. We don’t eat enough fish to need to limit every time. It’s a good thing too, because we don’t ! roflmao

They’re talking starting March 1st. I think it’s a good thing. I wish Texas would go to MS limits!

Good idea to me. Fishing forums and Facebook have contributed to the less than usual results in the last few years. 20 is more than enough.

Many contributing factors IMO. I have seen what a year of record crappie fishermen and limit after limit will do to a small lake. Still plenty of fish but finding WAY more unders and 10-10.75" fish than the last 8-10 years. Still having a good time though still would like to experience LS a few times.
