Can we add a wingspan minimum to that age restriction?

so what would be the negative to a 12 in min? overpopulation? what is it? there is no proof it wouldn't work, just a theory. i do know crappie grow big in the tn river and i firmly believe it would work. the 15 fish creel limit is a joke. that is only gonna stop people from going, unless they live near the lake.

a man should apply some pride to his fishing just like his job, and throw those little tater chips back. leave the ten inchers for the bank fishermen sitting on buckets, or make em illegal.

This is part of the reason your proposal has turned into a joke. How can we possibly take you seriously when you demean other fishermen who don't measure up to your "standards?" Talking down to the "bank fishermen" and the "tater chip" comment...it makes you a bad joke. Combine that with no scientific backup and the posts above will be the result on here and at a TWRC meeting.

I am unclear as to whether the 4 year minimum applies to all doves, or only Eurasian Collared doves. What think ye, ambulance chaser?

We've been over this. A 12" size limit would be pointless in Tennessee because the growth rate is too slow. In most places in Tennessee, it takes as long (or longer) for a crappie to reach 10" as it does for a Mississippi crappie to grow to 12". A lot of our crappie die of natural causes (not harvest) without ever growing to 12". Putting a 12" size limit on them won't work if they're simply not growing that big.

Look at Tellico. That lake has one of the slowest growth rates in the state. Lots of small crappie but they don't live long enough to grow to 10" at their growth rate. Putting a 10" size limit on that lake hasn't increased the number of keepers because it takes 5 years for a Tellico crappie to grow to 10" and their average life expectancy is closer to 4 years. A 10" limit there gives you plenty of 8-9" throwbacks but not more keepers.

If they grew fast and lived forever we could put a 20" size limit on them and catch giant crappie all day long, but that's not how it works.

Do you have any science to back that up? You can "not buy" it all day long, but TWRA has years of sampling data that say otherwise.

You might as well call NASA and tell them that you "don't buy that crap" about the moon being make of rocks, because you believe it is made of cheese.

well, let's be specific then. 12 in from pickwick north on the tenn river system to ky line, and on reelfoot. you can't deny those lakes are capable of growing twelve inchers can you? with the pressure they get, they need some relief. if they don't try that, the 15 fish crap is gonna suck. don't recall ever seeing a twenty inch crappie in tenn, but have seen many twelves, fourteens, and a few sixteens, so, your comment makes no sense, while mine is a plausible option if twra had the ba!!s and could take the heat.
