Getting folks riled up about fishing, only to admit fault on your own part later on? Priceless.
For everything else, there's MasterCard.
Thanks for being willing to hear what folks say and changing. Something we could all bear to learn.
jjmez: You're exactly 100% wrong with your comment. Here is what he said:
"I've fished without a license more times than I can count (I'm sorry, and promise never to do so again). Had a TWRA agent ever come my way, not in my worst dreams would I have ever imagined I'd end up handcuffed, arrested and taken to jail."
He does not say he was ever caught. He says the TWRA has never shown up when he was illegally fishing. If they did, I guarantee he would be fined. Or if he didn't have any ID, he would be arrested.
HAHAHA!!! This is the most hilarious, ridiculous thing I've read in a while. I'm guessing (hoping) this is only on the online version of the TFP, so it can be removed with great speed.
I'll try not to go over new ground, as much of the laughter has already been shared. Here are my two cents though.
Cent the first: I'm not sure where you're fishing to never get asked for a license, but I get asked on occasion. And they ask to see whatever fish I've caught, which I do. Because there are legal limits. Legal limits.
Cent the second: My uncle-in-law took a group of kids fishing a few years ago. He was not fishing because he didn't have a license. But when half the fishing kids took off to do something else, he had to reel in the rods they left behind. Just then, a GWRA (he's in Georgia) rolled up and asked to see his license. As stated, he didn't have one. So the GWRA guy told him my uncle-in-law was going to get fined. My uncle-in-law was not pleased and let this be known. He then got a ride to jail. And he's white.
