Great to see isn't it Bernie!!!! They also got/seized gear/boat/truck/trailer off Lake Temagami early this summer. Haven't seen that one come out in print yet.

Yes it is good to see Wayne. No sympathy from me.

Was on my way out to the cottage last week and I seen a guy fishing with 2 lines. Stopped by to have a chat with him. Asked him how the fishing was. "Nothing" was his reply. We chatted for a bit and he seemed like a pleasant fellow (from the good old USA), so then I told him he was allowed only 1 line. "Really?" he replied and promptly wound it in.. Well he did plead ignorant so I calmly suggested he read up on the regulations when he got back to camp.

Good to see the CO's out and causing these kind of people some financial pain;

my first thought was a longer suspension of his licence would have been nice but from the sounds of what he was doing he'd likely fish without a licence anyway. :angry:

If the ministry is hard up for cash they could go to Mountsberg on any Saturday.

I saw a guy with live minnows, alcohol, he didn't pay and he was bragging to others that he brought home a garbage bag full of pike last weekend. He was also fishing from the railway tracks which would earn him a trespassing charge and a hefty fine.

The sign is in plain view in the parking lot and states no live bait, no alcohol and a 2 pike limit.

Obviously the CO's can't be everywhere but it's good when they do catch poachers. That's why people should use the tip line when they see something illegal. Two guys in New Brunswick a few weeks ago got caught with 49 brook trout, limit is 5 each. They got a $1700 fine and lost their gear. It's not worth it.

This would just be a minor set back for the weekly onslaught of smallies at the mouth of the Maitland. They'd be back in a few days with new gear, no license and not a care..... :whistling:

 

Same crowd, same place, every year and everybody knows.

Did anyone who read the story in the Nugget scroll down to the bottom of the page? There's an advertisement that reads,"Bag a Freezer Full of Walleye Every Time You Go Fishing". Whoops!
