Ok, I read the last 5-6 pages and have a couple of questions to ask.
1) Were you out on the water to actually fish or were you just on a you ride?
2) If you were out with the intent of fishing, why didn't you just tell the Warden, "hey, I'm not fishing yet, but I will be over off of Spot X, stop on over and I'll show you then"
I get what the Warden was doing, he was trying to save time by checking you before he had to. I also understand what you were doing, standing up for yourself. I've been in that spot a couple of times myself where I've been asked for a license as I relaxed in my boat baiting my wife's hooks and again as I was coming off my shore station to fish. Both times I asked myself this one question..."is the time I'm about to spend or are spending on the water, worth the hassles?"
It's a question I'm sure you asked yourself and it's one that each guy may answer differently, so there really isn't a right or wrong answer to this.
Another young man receives a $72.00 fine for wearing a Wisconsin Badgers baseball cap in a totally enclosed box/gun season blind while his blaze orange cap hung on a hook.
Both against the "law"
I could't help but notice .............and I wonder if anyone else did...... the similarity and venom in both Reeldrags and dittos comments. AS IF THE TWO WERE ONE........
Hmmmmmmm.... The dictionary defines ditto as a copy............. could ditto be reeldrags alter-ego...........maybe a twin.
Stay tuned for their next wild adventure. LOL Lighten up people.
