Default They walk among us

Or troll among us, as the case may be.

Macman and I were on Granby yesterday when this older fella in a shiny red Lund came toward us, waving his arms. We thought he needed help so we went over to him. He did need help.

"How many of those little silver fish can you keep?", was the his emergency query. That was followed by questions about the limit on rainbows and lakers.

What are these people thinking as they're heading out for the day? "Sure hope I don't catch anything since I have no idea what the limits are"?

We made sure he knew it was illegal to keep any large lake trout at Granby.

One of the guys who works at Jax up north told me he had a guy come in and was trying to ID a fish he caught. Looking at their fish species chart he determined it was a gizzard shad. Guy told the clerk it didn't eat very well. Didn't know the species, but kept and ate it anyhow. Here's your sign!

I'm waiting for his post on Fish Exploiter with a picture of 4 little kokanee asking whether they're rainbows or cutbows.

Met a young man...18 years old or so...down at Trinidad one day. He'd just come from Walmart after buying his first fishing rod ever. Me and my buddy had our limit of walleyes and several perch on our stringers when he came up and asked about the fishing.

I gave him some jigs and told him to work the dam just north of the tower feeling confident he would get into some fish. Sure enough, an hour or so later, as we were loading our toons, he walked back around beaming from ear to ear while holding up his stringer of fish.

My heart sank...I really felt bad...we had just been checked by the warden and he was still just up the bank checking on a few other fishermen. And here was this young man, on his first fishing trip, holding up a stringer of undersized bass that he'd caught on the first rod he'd ever owned..

Did they ticket you for instigating and being an accessory?

Almost felt like I deserved it. I should have pointed out the rules for the lake knowing it was his first fishing trip ever...Still feel bad about that. Don't know what happened, but the warden was walking his way as we drove off...Hope he still wanted to fish after that.
