This isn't the first post about "violations" at WC. I too, have the Operation Game Thief # in my celly, and use it every chance i get out there. I wish WC would follow the Prairie View rules...you can keep 3 panfish, and must release everything else. It would allow the fishery to improve.
Last year, I chased an unlicensed youthful violator down the bank (me in the boat him running up the bank) after he caught a 14" LMB and run it to his brother's bucket, on the other side of the lake... I made such a fuss, they left the bucket and ran off... unfortunatley, the fish was dead. I wish the Sarpy Co Sherrif would leave the boaters alone out there and start walking the bank asking for licenses, and measuring fish in those big-a$$ white buckets! and then stop the runners at the gate and do a drivers license and insurance check...and start helping to make that place primo!
OBTW, since there is only one DNR guy for our area, and he is always on vaca, off, or unavailable, it is up to you to very tactfully, respectfully , but sternly inform the people out there they are violating the law. Then, if they ignore you, break out the celly and as loudly as you can, inform the officer what you witnessed, to include a description of their clothing, tackle, and car if you happen to know that. (this works real good, even if you never even dial the phone)
yuk yuk yuk.
Also, watch your back when packing up...
