BASS is launching/recovering in Texas and LA waters are off limits but they are keeping 12 inch fish. All I can find on TPWD website says 14 inch minimum in Texas waters. Is there a special rule/regulation on the Sabine?

Toledo Bend Dam to Sabine Pass
For largemouth bass, minimum length = 12 inches. Daily bag for largemouth, smallmouth, spotted, Guadalupe, and Alabama bass = 8 in any combination. Possession limit = 10.

They changed it to 12 after the first Elite series event they had there in 2013,

How did it work for Clear Creek, according to the TPWD website the limit is still 14"? Unless I'm looking in the wrong place.

"For largemouth and smallmouth bass, minimum length limit = 14 inches. No minimum length for Alabama, Guadalupe or spotted bass."
