Keeping a limit can be fine but I agree I don't do it every single time out. I go by the possession limit, I don't eat more than that anyway and if I would run out then I go fishing again. Have to be reasonable, but the possession limit is really hard to enforce. That is the main reason we end up with more restrictive daily limits, its to slow down the possession limit violators. People are less likely to violate the daily limit because they could get caught that day on the water.

well he obviously has these voices in his head that just won't stop....

he knows these guys are out there every day, but hasn't checked their bucket, so doesn't know if they are illegal, but is sure they are...

then there is the guy that "cringes" at the thought of giving some fish to the elderly "as an excuse" to catch and keep fish....

I just keep reading, been in enough arguments over the years, someone else has to take over....

does anyone else think threads like this are started by anti hunting/fishing groups?

I also give some fish away to elderly friends who can't fish anymore.

You hear this one quite a bit from guys trying to justify the fish or game they take. I cringe every time I hear it.

Walranger5:"...we take 2 to 3 limits, that's with 2 to 3 trips..." You and your granddaughter take your limit every outing but wish others shouldn't.

Walranger5:"But I know many guys are going there every day,..." How would you know that unless you were there every day? Or is your statement just based on here say and innuendo?

Walranger5:"Why not a limit for one so a guy has too take a kid if he wants more,..." What???

To refuse to take action on an actionable offense, provided you have actual hard evidence, simply because you do not like the DNR is highly irresponsible and, quite honestly, extremely petty.

if you report the guy to the DNR, they will watch him over several trips

The possession is nearly impossible to enforce with Iowa having no possession on panfish. Get a license from Iowa and you can just claim they are Iowa fish. Same with Ohio walleyes from Erie. Same with channel cats... unless they can dna test or something, I don't see how they can enforce. A guy I know abuses my favorite bluegill lake every spring. Keeps limit 20 to 30 times from ice out to mid May every year. He also has Iowa license every year for ice fishing Okoboji. No way to stop him.

If you know he is illegally selling wildlife, have you called the DNR? Have you done anything to stop this blatant abuse of a natural resource? Something tells me not.

Also, can't you keep your rants confined to one thread? I highly doubt you care about anything other than the attention you get.
