Not sure what they were doing

I rolled up to my south shoreline trying to hit the low tide in the middle of the night last night. I saw 2 headlights way out from shore and it took me a long time to figure out they weren't kayakers (they were waders). The lights would spread out from one another for a while and then come together. From what I saw they were using a net between themselves and then pulling the fish out of the net. I saw them pull at least two 20"+ fish out of the net (species unknown). It seems like they were seining but I'm not sure. Is this legal? I didn't want to investigate further.

Sounds fishy to me. I would think the legality would depend on the species being kept.

When in doubt report it to the game warden. They can handle the investigation and determine if illegal activity is going on.

Pretty sure gill netting any species in Texas is not legal. Seining for bait I believe is, but if you're keeping something 20" for bait, how big is what your fishing for.

Max seine length for catching bait in saltwater is 20 feet so if they were over about 15 feet apart they were probably using an illegal net.

Seine

A seine is a section of non-metallic mesh webbing, with the top edge buoyed upwards by a floatline and the bottom edge weighted. Includes a push net.

Legal only for taking nongame fish and other aquatic animal life including crabs, crayfish, and shrimp.
May not be longer than 20 feet.
May not have mesh exceeding 1/2-inch square.
Must be manually operated.
In salt water, nongame fish may be taken by seine for bait purposes only.
