Texas hunters as well as anglers who fish in fresh or saltwater should make note of several regulation changes recently approved by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission during its annual regulatory hearing.
LAKE NACOGDOCHES — It’s just after sunset on a pleasant spring evening and all is quiet at the upper reaches of Lake Nacogdoches in East Texas.
More than 1,700 amateur anglers anted up to cast for cash in the 2021 Bass Champs Mega Bass event held March 28 on Lake Fork, but only a handful of them found the big ones biting. Nine bass at the top end of the lake’s 16-to-24-inch slot limit were brought to the scales.
