Fished Decker from 2:30 to 8:30 this afternoon. Bite was red hot from the time I got there until about 6. Must have caught 25-30 fish between 2:30 and 6 then it just flat out died on me. I switched from the plastics that were producing for me to a crank, then a frog, then a spinner with no success. As it started getting dark on me I went back to the soft plastics in a darker color and the bite was back on again. Must have caught another 15 fish from 7:45 to 8:30. Nothing really big, largest was a bit shy of 4 with lots of 2's & 3's & only 6-7 unders. By far the most productive day I've ever had on Decker.

South shoreline primarily from the fishing pier cove west into the next cove. Didn't cover alot of ground as the fish were back in the pockets in the reeds. Had to fish slow and methodical but it paid off. Figure I was covering about 100 yards per hour.

I think slot limits are good if we fishermen use them.

I would like to see TPWD put in an exception clause to allow tournament fishermen to retain slot fish in the livewell to be released after weigh-in, but I'm not gonna hold my breath on that one. Having to target unders for tournaments/jackpots just plain sucks!

4 & 1/2" is a bit rediculous, but I would encourage people to take their 5 10"-14" fish from time to time.

Personally I think bass are great eating and I will take a limit whenever I want a meal.  On slot lakes I have no qualms about keeping a limit of unders, or on non-slot lakes with a healthly bass population I'll harvest bass up to the 15"-16" range and not think twice about it.  Anything over 3# will always go back.
