Sickening man. Absolutely sickening.

When I was a teen I couldn't get it together so I always missed out on the opening day trip to the mtns near Bishop CA. One year, someone dimed out my unscrupulous (former) step dad. Limits meant jack to him... The ranger wandered into camp and asked to see the cooler. There were over 100 trout in there, on opening day! Well, he got what was coming to him (not enough in my opinion)

That is so disturbing that I'm at a loss for words. The greed of the POS who did that is stunning.

Sadly, I believe there are plenty in this area who would do the same or are doing the same right now.

There is some sick obsession people have with trout, they treat them like a delicacy and to be honest they are fair at best when compared to other fish species.

I despise poachers, they literally are stealing from every other license holder with their greed.

I am quite certain that there are more than you would think in this area that are guilty of something similar to this. I have seen quite a few on the Clinch who kept more than their limit, including many in the slot. Called TWRA on a couple of them, as the were drifting downstream in kayaks, hoping they would catch them at Hwy 61. Also, I know a few guys who easily have five or six limits of trout in their freezer at any given time. In their mind as long as they only keep 7 fish per day they should be allowed to have as many as they want in their freezer.

I am sure that there are many others out there with that kind of mindset.
