I have seen ice chests full of big tilapia pulled from LH but the catchers didn't want to give up their spots. Cant say that I blame them. I was given a clue.....Kingwood. Might be fun spending a day catching a mess of those as they are delicious.

I saw them catching them in cast nets along the bulk head at BJS marina

not sure it that is legal but they had a sack full in a short time.

Need to immediately gut them because they are considered an invasive species.
Makes for a bloody mess.
No length or quantity limit...
Immediately gutting stops me from fishing for them until I come up with an effective way to do it.
What bait are they using?

Tilapia are of the Cichlid family and are considered a non game fish.
Non game fish can be taken by a cast net.
