Yes, you can keep it IF you tag it. I have heard of guys getting tickets for having Reds over 28" that were not tagged.
We have the slot also but don't have tags for over. Our limit is 1 red, whats yours?

Wow 1 fish, that stinks.

Our limit is 3 Reds, 10 Specks, and 5 Flounder except Nov. the limit is 2 Flounder. It was 10 Flounder every month until this year.

Louisiana is 5 Reds, and they only need to be 16". We live on the Tx./La. Border, so I'm thinking about getting a La license.

I know guys that don't keep anything they catch.

I keep mine, I like to eat fish.

Also, it kind of helps me justify to my wife all the $ I spend on my hobby.

Wow, I could not handle that at all.

We just came through several days of very cold weather for us, like to drove me nuts.

In another month the azaleas will be blooming and the Bass will be spawning.

I rarely keep fish. I kept 1 fish last season. 19" rainbow trout that was begging to be caught. I watched this fish jump up to 3 feet out of the water several times for about 15 min before i stalked up to it with a rouge stick bait. First cast and he attacked it. That was one hungry fish. I do keep legal stripers though. How are the reds for eating. How do you prepare them?

Reds are very good, we cook them on the grill on the half shell.

TAC, you do any waterfowl hunting? Good way to pass the cold and the hunting can be good in some parts of Tx from what I hear. Our season was 2 months long and we lost the last 2 weeks to every single major lake and river being frozen solid.
