How will the slot work on Lewisville as it relates to tournaments?  If you can only keep one over 45 inches, it be bad if you caught several over 45 inches.  The slot should make tournaments interesting.

I have contacted TPW about this and they will not release the slot for tournaments. As I read the rules it is one fish per person over 45 inches. That would be two per boat in a team tournament. I am checking with TPW on this to confirm.

Per Brian Van Zee TPWD-Inland Fisheries Regional Director- One fish over 45 inches per angler in a boat.



So for a 2 man team that means 2 fish over 45 inches.

that isn't an issue in most tourneys.   The biggy is none between 30 and 45.  That is what is going to level the playing field.  To give you an example, the Youth record on Lavon is 23 pounds.  The fish was 36 inches, so no 20 to 40 pound fish will be brought to the scales.  The is going to hurt the spectator draw as well.  They want to see big fish.  They will not get to see any 20s, 30s, and 40s.  That is a shame.  The 46# that I caught was about 42 inches long.  The 68# lake record on Lavon was 48.5 inches.  So it is going to take a heck of a fish to bring it to the scales based on the slot.  One fish over 45 inches may be the only fish that you need to win a tourney.  Not saying that is an easy thing to do.  Not an easy solution, in my mind on fishing tournies with these slots.  I like the slots limits overall, but it does change the outcome of a tourney for sure.

This

They will not get to see any 20s, 30s, and 40s.

I will agree on the 30's and 40's but if the tournament is held during the winter months I still think there will be some short fat lower 20's brought to the scale.

Then again we are talking Lewisville. Trying to remember, but out of the 3 tournaments that I can remember there average winning weight was roughly 10-17 lbs a fish. So we are not really losing anything either.

I might be wrong on the above weights. I was at the scale for one of the weigh-ins the other two I read about because of stupid boat issues.  icon_mad

it just depends on the time of year for a tournament,lewisville had a 100+ stringer one time and the rest not so much. i   had tourneys on twok and the winning stringer at the last was over 200lbs and then a another was 17lbs total weight with a channel cat. timing is everything.  i like the slot limit becuase it still allows some big fish to be taken and culled but not harvested too bad and help the future of the species.

I would be curious to know how many of the 5 fish that Joe and Ed weighed in were over 45 inches in length.  I would suspect that most, if not all were under 45 inches.  That is my point.  If the slot were imposed on Twok, would those stringers have held up?  I know the 123 that we weighed in, all of our fish were in the slot, so we would have had to weigh in the 5 - 15s that we culled instead of the 20s that we weighed in.  Again, I ain't complaining about the slot from a recreational stand point, I am simply pointing out that the weigh-ins are going to be less of a spectator sport at lakes with these slots.  The anglers may have a heck of a day catching 30s and 40s, but only be able to bring 10s and 15s into the weigh in and HOPE to get that monster kicker...

10 to 15 pound fish to most folks is a monster! Only us privlidged few who have experienced the thrill of the super monster fish will know the difference.

Tgravley caught a 36 lb Blue Saturday before last and it was 47" long out of Lewisville, I know the fish are not as fat now as they are in the winter, but it's not too long till the tournement!!!

That's a great photo!  That guys must be one heck of a photographer.  That fish was kind of thin.  It looked to be in good shape, but not a lot of thickness to it.  I'm hoping we see some benefit from the slot on Lewisville in a few years.

She is pretty skinny (although a very nice catch!).  I have found that Lavon blues are fatter than my Lewisville catches.  Not sure why as both lakes are loaded with shad.
