Seems as if most judges are pretty lenient towards TROUT regulations, heck, if you go into any court room anymore, they're to lenient. That can lead to a whole other discussion though.

I spoke with the TWRA Officer Monday at the weir dam and I think he said the fine without a fishing license is around $240. Of-course; a judge can punish worse or less depending on his nature.

I think the most of the TWRA Fines should got to a slush fund for budget deviations and special projects. I understand the courts have to cover a set cost; but, that is ridiculous if they get upwards of 95% of the fine.

I pay $136 + $ 15 for a federal duck stamp every year. I haven't killed a deer or turkey in 2 years, a bear in 4 and only a hand full of the tastier ducks last seaon. I put back 95% of the trout I catch and only catch a couple limits of crappie and walleye each year. What am I thinkings? LOL!!! I don't want to even include all the "NEEDS"or "HAVE TO HAVE'S" or gas spent. Can we say ADDITION!!!! I would make a good canidate for that show Intervention.
