You know, I was just thinking. I never caught a bass while jug fishing but I did catch two jugs while bass fishing. Unfortunately, I couldn't get her in the boat. Porter Waggoner had the same experience but I believe he did land her.

It is not clearly written at all.

I always assumed the part about "Nongame fish, except paddlefish, may be taken without limit; game fish, except catfish, may not be taken" was intended to apply to everything in the title, trotlines, limblines, and jugs.

You're right - because of the trotline definitions at the very start, it seems to suggest that the part about game fish refers only to trotlines. I doubt that's what they meant though.

It needs to be re-written.

Like other things in the TWRA "Guides", the content often is a summary of the regulations and unfortunately that sometimes leaves some things out. That is why all of the "Guides" have a disclaimer that they are not legal documents. In this case the Fishing Guide is wrong. All species are legal and creel and size limits are the same as with rod and reel.

The problem has been documented and will be changed in the next Fishing Guide.

Thanks for making us aware of the problem!

Caught a nice 5# smallie on a limbline using bluegill, I never could understand how he didn't get off, he was barely hooked and had plenty of life in him when we ran the lines.
