How was that costing them any money? I always go opening week and have never seen a game warden or have been checked. Love to fish for them a couple days each year, but snagging is not my way of fishing. It can be alot of fun watching them jump though.

What ever happened the the TWRA stripping the paddlefish regulations? Just looked in the 2009 fishing guide and everything is the same?

It's my understanding that the Commission saw the error of their ways and the regs were reinstated.

I think a round of thanks is in order for the folks here who stood up for what is right.

The commercial season I thought was different than the sport season?

Hey they removed the regulations because there are federal protections in place for the paddlefish. This is what I was told is the reason. I was just as mad until I was told the whole truth. I know Boyce you have no greater friend fighting for you and for TWRA! thanks chris nischan

Not accurate. The Commission removed the regs because they were tired of dealing with protests from commercial fishermen and thought the feds would step in to regulate paddelfish caviar export if there were no state regulations. That was a big gamble.

The feds do not have any regulations in place that would affect the size or number of paddlefish harvested.

Sure, legal commercial ops might not be able to sell the caviar as easily if the feds intervened, but removing the regs left TWRA absolutely powerless to stop poaching and "black market" sales, which has the potential to be a GIANT problem in light of the value of paddlefish caviar.

It was a dumb move, and we should be glad the Commission realized it was a dumb move.
