So today I see a meat hog catch a snake pike and throw it on the ground next to all of his 4 inch crappie and bluegills. So I walk over to him and tell him its too small to keep (24 inch min.) and he has to throw it back. I was waiting for the barage of excuses, no speak english, I dont believe you, MYOB..... But to my suprise he says " To small ? OK". and throws it back. I was shocked. Didnt think it would be that easy!. Score one for the good guys!

Nice job, but I guarantee he will keep doing it when nobody says anything. Either way good job.

Good job. A polite approach can take you a long way.

Just be careful when, who and how you approach people. There are a lot of crazies out there that are one button away from going off in a bad way.

Nice job Mike, we turned in a bunch of bucketeers to a ccfp cop that was going around checking licences and they took note of where they were at the lake. So hopefully things will be changing.
