How do the guides feel about this? Think about It, how many people will want to spend large amounts of money just to go catch a few fish??

The ones down south aren't hurting to my knowledge, the pressure in Mansfield is as high as ever.

The guides will have an easier time getting their clients a limit and of better fish. Personally, I would like to see the slot decreased for trout as well.

I will, if they are big girls! But some people do have that mentality and they may go less which will be good for the trout population.

They know they're breaking the law. I'd like to see $10,000 fines and a few boats being confiscated from violators. Maybe then these idiots would get the message.
At least they had nice set ups.....

Personally I wouldn't go out with a guide just to bag a limit, I'd go out with a guide to gain knowledge of a particular area, learn somethings about patterns etc, try to pick the brain of the guide as much as possible. But that is just me I try to absorb as much information as possible.

With Fish Consumption Bans what they are today, bring on the restrictions. As sad as it is, I've been releasing everything I catch for quite some time now,

I'd like to read more data on it for my own info. Guess I'll call my game warder buddies.
Which end of West bay do you mainly fish? I ask because the summer & fall have been the worst in 20 years for me.

I'm good with the 5 fish limit too.
