(Austin News KXAN)   Protip: If you are 35 fish over the legal limit it's not a good idea to brag about it on a fishing blog and then try to defend yourself by saying you deserved to keep that many because you usually throw them back   (kxan.com) divider line 38

What a farking dickhead. The limits are in place because if everyone went out to do what this asshole did there wouldn't be any fish left to catch. And taking bass is extra trashy. They are a sport fish; keep the crappie and panfish, throw the bass back.

/hope he gets the $500 per fish fine

Benton Fraser bursts in, a man slung over his shoulder.

Fraser: That's the last time he'll fish over the limit.
Superintendent Meers: And you felt it necessary to go out there and get him now? In the middle of one of the worst storms we've had this year?
Fraser: Yes, sir.
Meers: Fraser, you just tracked a man 300 kilometers because he caught too many fish?
Fraser: He exceeded the limit by quite a bit, sir.
Meers: How much could a man fish over the limit that would justify you recklessly endangering your life and the reputation of this police force?
Fraser: Four and a half tons, sir.
Meers: Of fish?
Fraser: Yes, sir. He was dynamiting the rivers, scooping the salmon off the surface with a backhoe. So I destroyed the plastic explosives, the nitroglycerin, fragmentary mines. And I then donated the three and a half truckloads of fish to a local Inuit village. The tribal elder said he would call you with his thanks as soon as their local phone lines were restored.
RCMP Officer #1: Sir, there's a tribal elder on the phone for you and this just came in over the wire.

As of yesterday his facebook page cover photo was the illegal fish he caught, not sure if its still there but it shows his asshattery in thinking he's above the law.

I was reading that thread "live as it happened" and the change in this guy's attitude from "screw you guys" to "I can't believe someone reported me to the DNR" was quite comical. Shame they shut down such an epic thread.

First off, blogs are generally pointless and the word blog is objectively stupid. Adding "fishing", which is admittedly neither a pointless activity not a particularly stupid word, just makes it seem worse.

"I bet he won't do it again," said Bane,

Damn straight!!!

I bet he won't brag about his over the limit fish catching on the internet again!

Why does Texas have game wardens at all? I'm sure this a problem basic economics and the free market could solve.

TFA: "Under a screen name, 25-year-old Dustin Heathman described the best fishing trip of his life."

does "under a screen name" mean they really don't know who this fellow is, and he just out-trolled a bunch of trollers? :

troller 1. a. To fish for by trailing a baited line from behind a slowly moving boat. b. To fish in by trailing a baited line: troll the lake for bass. (thefreedictionarydotcom)

Who actually keeps bass to eat? They taste like shiat and are really high in mercury. Just go buy some tilapia or catfish

Mercury? Not in my lake. My bass are loaded with the steroids pissed out by my cows. The snapping turtles enjoy a nice hearty breakfast of PCB Elodea and the frogs absolutely love the DDT seasoning found on the mosquitos.

I'm thinking it's from the TV show "Due South", but it's been a long time since I've seen it.

The word blog is short for web log, a website devoted to a person's thoughts and/or interests which in this case included fishing. Welcome to the internet.

Mercury?? Yes in everybody's lake.....especially yours in VA where all the coal burning done here in WV gets blown across our state and in to yours...unfortunately.

Applause to the people that turned him in. I've been known to flip out on people on the docks I fish at who keep short fish, fish out of season or keep more than the limit allows and are vocal about it. A fluke being 19.35 inches when the regulations say 19.5, whatever; pull the tail a little bit, open his mouth and he's regulation size. Even the DEC cops let that slide. But a 13 inch fluke and Joe Numbnutz thinks he's going to take that home, that's what sets me off. Likewise with crabs. You don't keep small crabs. You don't keep egg-laden crabs. I actually called the cops to chase off an inconsiderate dbag who had been ticking me off all night that made it even worse by throwing egg-bearing crabs into his cooler while loudly explaining to his dumb-as-a-rock girlfriend that you're not supposed to keep them. (This is a park I worked at for 6 years where the staff and cops all know me/used to drink with me, so that whole calling the cops thing is not as ludicrous as it sounds - and they love chasing people off.) You wanna play on my piers, you play by the farking rules. SO SAY'ETH THE NIGHT GIRL.

...yeah I'm a little passionate about fishing. Thankfully the boyfriend don't mind me coming in at 4am smelling of baitfish and light beer. But if he came home at 4am smelling like that... because he don't fish.

I cook crappie and bluegill together all the time and there is no noticeable texture difference IMO. Perhaps do you crappie fish in the summer? Put your catch on ice immediately and they don't turn to mush..


-Catfish- tastes of crap+mud+mercury
-Bass- Mud
-Bluegill- light mud
-Crappie, walleye and trout- only fish worth eatin but rarely keep other than crappie, plus no limit here on the ole' papermouths!

When I fish place that I know to have poachers I often wear a shirt (like a WV Corrections tshirt with a little badge insignia) or hat or something that make me look like a LEO of some sort....they go scattering and it's hilarious.

If I see a vehicle parked where I know they are fishing a wild/native trout stream I automatically remember the license plate. That way If I see them with an illegal catch/limit I report them.

Reading through that thread really shows this guy to be quite an ass.

"Sorry if I upset anyone." Ah, yes. Not sorry about the thing you did wrong, but sorry that people didn't like you bragging about it.
"Well I guess if I get busted for having a good time then I get busted..." Yeah, the fun police are going to bust you for having a good time. That's the issue.

THAT is a genius idea that I (stupidly) never thought of - I've got a million Parks dep't shirts and jackets and hats, and a few Park Police shirts... should wear one of those on Fri and Sat nights when I'm down there. (That's when the idiots always show up; weekday nights it's mostly just myself and the rest of the 'regulars' crowd. And Heaven help the soul who tries to poach in front of those guys, Hell hath no fury like angry retirees wielding fillet knives.)

When I lived in Wisconsin I had smoked whitefish quite a bit, but not 'fresh.' I loved the smoked stuff, so it may stand to reason that it's a great fish too.

What about chain pickerel? We have those here in NH, and they are fantastic eating. But they are very bony. Almost not worth the effort to clean unless they are 20"+.

Anybody ever eat yellow perch? It takes a bunch of them to make a meal, but they are very tasty.
