    Default What would you have done?

    I was fishing a MDC lake last weekend when a nimrod started throwing a cast net.I read the regs and pole and line fishing only.I informed the gentleman and was told to mind my own f****** business.So ok, called the conservation hotline and gave the registration number of boat.Agent returned my call and said he would contact the gentleman.Would you have called the warden?

    Casting nets are legal for shad and bait fish. A lot of folks do that for catfish bait. Was he keeping game fish?

    I would have just turned him in. Confronting idiots these days can get ugly quick.

    tricky business there and you did the right thing. confronting a idiot is always dicey. only time I did when a local moron was sighting in his rifle when me and couple of friends were in FRONT OF HIS LINE OF FIRE!!!! I jumped up at the shot and asked him if he was a f**king idiot or what and he got offended and came at me, only time I have actually struck someone in a confrontation but he barely slapped my face and I kicked him hard in the nads dropping him straight down. Then I pulled out my phone and called local office and pointedly gave them his license number while he was threatening me. He had rifle but I was turkey hunting and leveled my shotgun on him at close range and told him to get the hell out of there as there was a $1000 fine for doing what he was doing and it was right next to his truck! Pulling the cell out did the trick and while he was cursing me he also peeled out fast.

    here's the problem if you do that right in front of him while your on your boat on the water. IF he realizes what your doing and leaves he could do something to your truck or trailer on the way out if there is no one else in parking lot.

    no worries about truck or boat I was bank fishing and the cast net just pushed me over the edge.Crappies were spawning i probably caught 100 kept 15.Looked like this was not his first rodeo with a cast net.

    We have a local MDC lake with only rod and reel fishing near us. Saw a trot line in a couple of times. Saw a big family also jug lining. Boat had To many people in it including kids with no life jackets on. When they left all the kids piled into the bed of the truck before they drove off. You can’t fix stupid.

    If you ask nicely and he is rude, turn him in. Especially if the regs state this is not allowed. Good on you!
