New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 25, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Outdoors HerftlcHtitung July 10A Wrap up summer with trip to coast By CHARLES PARSONS Outdoors writer Two facts are quickly becoming evident to nearly July has less than one full week leaving the kids to prepare for the upcoming school year and most families saying goodbye to their prime vacation If you have just one or two more weekends to spend outdoors and want both the family and the outdoorsman in the family to really enjoy try the middle coast area for both speckled trout and redfish The best part is

use fingerling live mud minnows and threeto fourinch long pinfish and which can be purchased or easily caught with a cast net in the shallows of the Because of the record freeze in December of 1984 that killed an estimated fish including trout Texas Parks and Wildlife Department officials imposed several The daily limit on trout was reduced from 20 to 10 and the possession limit from 40 to The minimum size limit was increased from 12 to 14 This will since trout do not normally spawn until they are 12 inches With the minimum size increased to 14 we feel most speckled trout will get through one spawn before they are harvestable said Gary director of the Parks and Wildlife Departments finfish All things combined fishing and nice beaches this should make for a good family trip before the
