I thought they were going to vote on that too yesterday.

What were they proposing? I know they wanted to do away with the slot, but were they pushing for a limit of 5 or a slot?

I heard 7/person/day, no size restriction. I think this will help immensely. Eliminate the competition from the smaller fish. It will result in less fish, no doubt, but a bigger average size fish caught and will increase the potential for really good size fish.

I think new regs always go into effect when the licenses renew.

Here is a quick note about the bass proposals that I found on the Advocate.com"


quote:

Basin bass
A quick look at the proposed black bass regulations for the Atchafalaya Spillway, the Lake Verret Basin and Lake Fausse Pointe offered at Thursday’s LWFC meeting:
- Eliminating the minimum size limit on “keeper” black bass. The current limit is a minimum of 14 inches.
- Changing the daily creel limit to 7 bass. Current daily limits are 10.
- Fishermen will have a 120-day comment period.
- These new rules have a two-year “sunset” provision.
- Fishermen must wait for the comment period to expire, then wait for the new regulations to be posted in the State Register before the new regulations will take effect. This cannot happen before June 20 this year.

Makes sense, would change with new license. I like the proposed changes. I would have been cool with 5.

I just hope there aren't a bunch of a-holes keeping 8-10" fish

The actual text of the proposed rule might be published as a Notice of Intent in the February Edition of the "Louisiana Register" which will come out on February 20.

I don't think that will be a big issue. They'll be mopping up all those 13 15/16" fish fora while.

I think people will keep small ones just to say they caught a limit.

according to their "study" and the reasons for the drop of min size limit is because bass in this area do not survive long enough to be "really good size fish"... the only thing it will "help immensely" will be the people that can not fish will now be able to take a boat load of little fish home.

As aggravating as it is catching those I really enjoy the challenge of getting a mess of fish over 14 and the thrill of heading back to the launch hoping Green Jeans's ruler is the same as mine

I would not call 7 fish each a boat load. Some people fish to bring home some to eat. If you are into tournaments, don't keep them. Sounds like the Feds wanting to ban some guns because they do not like the way they look. if there is no biological reason for the reg., change it.
