Default Texas State Wide Striper regulation change proposal

A change in striper limits proposed
BY JESSICA RICHARDSON
HERALD DEMOCRAT


POTTSBORO — The new year could bring a statewide striped bass regulation change if the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission votes in favor of doubling the possession limit.

Bruce Hysmith, TPWD fisheries biologist, said Lake Texoma anglers are currently under a 10 fish bag limit and a ten-fish possession limit. Only two of the ten fish can be 20-inches or larger.
Hysmith said, “Say you came on a Saturday and caught 10 striped bass, then went home and put them in your freezer. You could come back on Sunday and catch another ten and there would be nothing wrong with that.”
Putting the fish at home in your freezer is an important part of regulations, said Hysmith, because the ten fish must be taken to a final destination point before another ten are caught.
The proposed change would primarily benefit tourists and traveling anglers fishing Lake Texoma for multiple days.
Hysmith said. “If you’re living in Dallas and want to come fish for a weekend — two days — you could legally then have in your possession 20 striped bass.” Another advantage of the proposed change is creating uniformity between Texas and Oklahoma. He said if the change is adopted, both states would then have a 20 fish possession limit.
If the change is approved by the Commission in January, a public hearing would then be held on the issue in March.
Hysmith said he believes the measure will pass. He said, “It’s not a big deal. We’re not raising license fees or cutting limits. It usually doesn’t create a lot of excitement unless you’re denying people something.”
