Everytime I see theese big tiderunner pics I just want to vent about the 14 inch size limit. I know raising size limits is not a topic that everyone agrees with, but a big weakie like the one pictured above is one of the most beutifull fish God put on the planet. A 14 incher has about two tabelspoons of meat on it. Would many of you guys beef is the size limit was raised to 18 or 20 inches and what size limit do you think would create more awsome tiderunners?
12-13lbs, my guess. Male, yellow fins. Nice fish!!!
Yeah, the size limit for weaks is really pathetic. Do what they did for redfish, keep 2 or 3 fish within the slot limit between 15-25" or so, and release all the rest. Let the big spawning cows live, eat the more widespread younger fish. It'll never happen, though, as long as they are still a commercially fished species.
