So I talked to the guy in charge of the fish awards program at Texas Parks and Wildlife and he said my White Bass wasn't eligible for the state catch and release record because I didn't take a picture of it being measured. Even though the guys at BJ's measured it, signed and witnessed it, and it was notarized. That's 3 different people who verified it not including myself. Let this be a lesson to anyone who catches a big un'. Take a picture of it while it is on your measuring stick.

I still get the Lake Houston Water Body Record and a big fish award.

Yea that is terrible especially if you had it notarized. Look at it this way who needs the piece of paper to prove it you will always know in your heart and mine you have it. That paper means nothing. Great catch!!!!

Maybe you should have kept the fish?

I remember when those two guys in CA caught the world record 25# bass, and they had all kinds of stuff toward the record; pics, witnesses, videos, measure, certified scale etc. but because it was hooked outside the mouth, they couldn't keep it. It would have been illegal. Ray Scott even said he wouold have gotten fined for a world record.
But... them's the rules.

I would have kept a white bass personally but, if you feel that strongly about releasing it; God Bless You...

There was another guy and a bathroom scale; but that's another story...

I appreciate the support. Makes me loose a little less sleep over it.

Fmmadden, I have nothing against keeping fish, but by releasing this one I figured it to be a "catch and release" STATE record.

As it is, I get the lake record, and all I can do is go back after em'
