It is the stream of unconciousness. Comes from being a coma for eight days. \:\)

But here is something that almost nobody on ths or any forum ever considers:

No matter how good a regulation may be, at some point, it must be enforceable. Somewhere along the line, somebody has to be able to say, "Here's your ticket."

In terms of enforcement, the CF is a mindboggler. Sure the access and gravel bars can be checked, should be checked. But the task of actually "handling" that river is a sumtich.

Loc: In a river hopefully!

I for one am going to the Clinch tomorrow AM and hope to whale on a few bigger than lately fish (due solely on the new regulations)! Thanks TWRA.

Now on another note. Does someone know the TWRA Poachers telephone # ?

Number two...since we have limited enforcement, can signs be purchased through TWRA by an individual and placed along access points stating new rule changes(offsetting TWRA costs, better spent on hiring more enforcement). Even if we deter 20%, that's only 60% of those still breaking the law.............Oh you thought this smart guy made a mistake? No, that's to account for 20% of the ignorant morons that can't read....either English or Spanish!

PS..I slung me some bait during crappie season. Am I off the list of elitest C&R snobs now?

PSS..If I catch saltwater trout on the fly, or redfish, and they are in the slot, they are going to die, filleted, and vacuumed sealed before nightfall. Anyone for blackened redfish with a crab bisque soup for an appetizer?

Men, if you don't mind me joining in i would like to expound.I am not trying to bash our Game wardens,they have a tough job, but i have been hunting and fishing for most of my 42 years.Our recources are just that to the government, A recource.I have not seen our deer heard improve the way it could, our fisheries are not what they used to be when my dad used to go with my grandpa and bring home a nice stringer of crappie or walleye.IT IS ALL ABOUT THE MONEY.It cant be up to the government or more regs whether it is fishing or hunting.You and I as responsible sportsmen have to take it upon ourselves and lead by example.
If people go fishing or hunting and they come back whith nothing the may get discouraged and not buy that license,that trout stamp,or that deer tag.That means no taxes on firearmas ,ammo,that gas to get there and many other things.See to the powers at be its all about the money.Lawmakers only care about the money.It is ultimatley up to the individuals.not the government and more regs.Sure i will agree some regs have to be in place.But you will never regulate morality or what is a successful hunting or fishing trip to different people.
Ok thanks for getting me fired up!!
Im sorry Guys.
