This morning I started fishing and come upon some nets. The guy running them had started running them at daylight but must have had a ton of them out because we could here him fire the boat up and change location for 1 1/2 hours. Then he got to where we could see him. He pulled 3 nets while we watched and left 7 big dead paddlefish floating. He also blue buy me pushing a wake that i really thought was going to come over the side of the boat.

If he averaged 3 nets every 30 minutes Like we observed then and averaged 7 dead paddle fish for each 3 nets he may have killed 25-30 fish this morning in order to get a bunch of buffalo. I understand they can't keep them this time of year but with water temps so high they die of stress anyway.

I say ban all commercial fishing on Tennessee waters.
