During its meeting on January 25, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department ( TPWD ) Commission approved suggested rule changes to the bag and size restrictions for spotted seatrout. In case you missed what we said yesterday, the standard shifts are listed below.
The commission has approved the following size restrictions for caught seatrout bags:
- Three seafood per day bag for each fish
- A maximum length restriction of 20 feet and a maximum size of 15 inches
- As part of the daily bag limit, one huge fish larger than 30 inches is permitted.
Remember that TPWD states that these guidelines will go into effect as soon as possible, with see on the exact dates being provided once that timeframe is known.
The majority of fish shifts start on September 1 after decisions are made in Austin. Evidently, this one is unique. As soon as we receive the information, we will publish it.
Moreover, commissioners gave their approval for the publication of a proposal to develop tags that would enable the capture of large trout.
This is defined as being longer than 30 inches, and a tag may come with an annual bonus tag for an additional fee.
The payment may look into additional public input and take the suggested tag system into consideration in March.
As we delved deeper into this matter, we will have more.
