I've been keeping an eye on one of my favorite holes looking for the tateltales that the fish are in. every night I've been down there the same group of four or five boys has been hamering on smolt. Ive told them trout season is closed and they ignore me. tell them they are catching smolt and hurting future runs..they get all smart alic with me. I've told them five times now and am ready to call the fuzz. They are standard teenage boys 16, 17 ish cause they drive. What would you guys do?

Who cares Phil. Call the Po. Trash like them are not worth thinking about. If they have been informed on more than one occasion, they are purely ignorant. Ignorance is bliss, but don't let it bother you, the number on the back of yer tags takes too long for anyone to show up down there, call the local fuzzers. Tell them what is happening, and take one down to the smolt death hole.

I'd call OSP and wouldn't think twice about it. Being young and stupid is not an excuse for not reading the regs and knowing the laws. You've already warned them, now it's time to make the call.

Yeah, I'd be on the phone with OSP with plate numbers. Especially since you've already told them, and they just don't care.

Does someone who has called before want to post the correct OSP line to call regarding this? I'd like to put it in my phone in case I run into this in the future as well :think:

Again, let me apoligize for my lack of control on this issue, as a MOD I should set a far better example... it just frost my $@!!'s that they get away with it.
Thanks for thinking of me though, but you had better make it two beers.

I'd Call the authorities i am the age of these D#ck bags who are doing it and i am completely aware of the rules when it comes to fishing. its not hard to figure it out. if they are down there one more time and you see them call the cops make sure they stay where they are and have them face the penalty of there ignorence

You have no choice but to report them. Let them explain to a judge that they don't care about the laws. Might be an eye opening experience. (or it might be the beginning of a long relationship with the criminal justice system)

Kodiak,

At this point I would call the MAN. You gave them fair warning. Plus, they got smart-mouthy with you so I'd not think twice! What they're doing is hurting the fishery and our children's future outings on the water! Those are the kids who grow up and employ illegal tactics and care more about feeding their egos than improving the fishery. Plus, they will breed, and more bastard kids will be out doing the same thing. Time is of the essence...and so are those smolts they're hammering. Make the call, and know that you have the support of 99% of us OFFers. Seriously, if you need/want some support I'd be happy to accompany you to that hole, with or without the fuzz.
