More stocking. In all the lakes. Better fish populations. Also drain Ray Roberts...

I get approached a couple of times a year by TPWD doing surveys at the boat ramps. Not so much as asking opinions, but just wanting to do a quick survey about how the bite was, size of fish, number of times I fish a month/year. Distance I have traveled to the lake.


Honestly, I think TPWD is doing a great job, and keep up the good work Most people get tunnel vision and dont realize how good the fishing has gotten in this state since the 70's-80's.

After blackeyes at Lewisville and Roberts in back to back BASS events, why haven't they admitted the LMB populations in many N. Texas lakes are way lower than they thought. What are the plans to improve this, and what is the time frame to turn this around?

I have always said when it comes to Stocking lakes for Bass they only really care about Fork (its their gem ) but there are other lakes that would be a lot better if they were stocked 1/2 as much as Fork. As far as vegetation goes if TPWD knows there's a blade of grass in a lake they will kill it. As far as I'm concerned Ray Roberts is a joke.

How's that "zebra mussel infestation" on Lake Lavon announced 13 years ago coming?

My fear is that the majority of the people they survey are those who spend more time on the water, thus taking catch rates from locals with higher percentage spots sway the results of the survey.

spend more focus, time, and energy on helping Hydrilla regrow in many texas lakes, instead of killing it...

My biggest complaint is the eradication of all the grass.

Issue each lake a set number of tournament slots per year based on the fishery's health. Auction them off to the highest bidder and use the funds to restock the lakes. Catch and release only for bass over 14" during March and April. If I'm really hoping I'd ask to ban weigh-in tournaments March-September (spawn and the hot water months).

Stock some lakes that haven't been stocked since the 80's

stop kissing Forks arse and spend some time money and energy on every other lake in the state. Nobody I know down here in SE Texas can stand TPWD. They refuse to do anything to help out lakes even after sending multiple emails and typed papers with hundreds of signatures. If it's not Fork or Rayburn do they even care? Hell Rayburn doesn't get half the attention Fork gets it seems.
