Poachers!

These knuckleheads were keeping bass...little ones.

Called Loudoun County and the Game Warden.

Re: Poachers!

Apparently they denied keeping fish so not much sheriff could do. They probably threw them back after I "confronted" them.

But the message was sent.

Re: Poachers!

You should video record them next time before confronting, then when the Warden shows up you have proof and he can cite them on the spot.

Re: Poachers!

Good idea....I really just chatted with them and told them that it was "catch and release" but they coped an attitude and I said I would call the cops, which I did.

Re: Poachers!

Two more tonight, different guys. I told them nicely that they could not keep fish (have video this time). They looked at each other like, "what's he saying"?. I responded in my native tongue and they said, "gracias" and moved along.
