Im new to bass fishing and pretty sure but not certain in the past bass had to be at least 14-15 inches to keep however I am having trouble locating the specifics in the TWRA fishing guide Any help in elucidating the proper length would be greatly appreciated

thanks in advance and may the best times of your past be the worst of your future

Its different for every lake... so you'll need to look up what the size limits are for each fish on a lake you plan to fish if you plan on keeping any.

The regs are the same for Chickamauga and Nickajack Lakes. Interestingly, there is no size limit on largemouth for the Nickajack tailwaters (Tennessee portion of Guntersville lake). The 18" size limit for Smallmouth was adopted Statewide last year. Some of the Upper East Tennessee lakes allow you to keep more than one Smallmouth but the 18" length limit still prevails. The length limit on Largemouth varies depending on the Lake but most commonly, it's 15". There is no length limit on Spotted Bass anywhere in the State.
