This might be an opportunity for us to share our concern about not being able to keep native TN fish. I know NANFA has brought the subject before the TWRA before but it never hurts to keep trying. I also heard that TWRA was going to rework their record system. I'm not 100% sure on the details but I thought I would let you know. I think it has to deal with the two classes of record fish they keep (A&B).
