    Great article about hunting in October TF&G. Now please address fishing in the Coastal Bend. In the Rockport area, the overfishing has reached crisis proportions. We have a guide on every block and at least 3 tournaments every week end all summer long. The Babes On The Bay tournament alone attracted 1400 women this year and the weigh-in was an embarrassment.
    Last fall David Sikes, the Corpus Christi Caller-Times sports writer, actually advised fishermen to go as far as they can from Rockport if they expected to catch fish.
    I have fished many places, and in many Northern States all you can expect to catch is “stockers”, which are hatchery-raised fish. That’s because so many people fish that Mother Nature can’t keep up.
    We don’t have deer, quail, goose or dove hunting tournaments, for obvious reasons. If fishing is to continue, let’s admit that tournament fishing is about money, and require every tournament sponsor to pay 25 or 35 percent of the purse to expand and run fish hatcheries. Limits aren’t going to do the job anymore.
    It’s getting tough to find a legal size fish for just one meal unless you are tuned in to the guide network.
