Christ, Once at Atown I lowered the motor and about 3 oz. of water dribbled out. This was a Sun. I had been on Atown on Fri. Fucking Nazis made me do the impound thing for 2 weeks. I NEVER tell the truth anymore-

Fucking bunch of stupid ****-
I, too have found it simpler to just "admit nothing"
I have had a running battle with one Guy at Chatty for a year and a half.
This guy wants to interpret ANY rule as HE sees fit... :confused:
He jumped in My boat once, and started to open up my storage compartments and drawers...
I told Him flatly... "Get the F--k out of my boat"
No problems with anyone else....
Thats the problem...
NO Statewide, UNIVERSAL rule plan... too many goofs that wanna enforce rules as THEY interpret Them...

I found a funny thing to do. Just pull out your phone and say you want to record the conversation. I did it to an inspector at CC......his dickheadness suddenly went away.

It is always easy to complain when there is not a contamination issue in the lake you fish. Being a native of the MidWest (Upper Michigan), I can tell you the destruction that comes with what the ANS inspections are attempting to prevent. The pain we go through now to get a boat inspected prior to, and after fishing is minimal in comparison to not being able to fish a system because it has been DESTROYED by zebra mussels or milfoil. I am by no means saying that the inspection system is perfect, we all know there are loopholes and points of insanity. I hate that I can't just be "certified" for a single body of water using live bait. I only fish one body of water with live bait, but I cannot drop them into the water for fresh exchange (legally) and take them home. So my bait dies and I fork over more money the next trip. It all comes down to honesty, and unfortunately there are the few that will ruin it for the many. So I will take the inspections, I will comply with the rules, and I will enforce said rules upon others I see not doing the right thing, in hopes that my future remains free of closed waterways due to invasive contaminations.

My II Cents

^^^^^^
I agree with acat500, totally. Ignore the rules and some day a lake will be ruined.
I have family in Michigan and as acat500 stated you have no idea the destruction that happens.
Nothing is perfect but it is what it is.

They take the bottom of the food chain away (plankton) and every thing above that dies.
