Poachers: Are you sure the coast is clear?

Six smallmouth bass poachers from Tennessee and Georgia have gone home from western Lake Erie minus three bass-boat rigs, two freezers, and more than $16,000 cash after a Port Clinton magistrate threw the book and the kitchen sink at them.

Nice to hear of a big bust like that every now and then. Keeps the rest of the poachers on their toes a little more. Interesting that they lost their boats but surprised that they got to keep their pick up trucks.

I once saw a poacher during the salmon run lose his rod and reel, his cooler, his rain jacket and pants, and his truck! Now that would be embarrassing!

I still am a big supporter of getting rid of the minimum size limit and going to a slot limit. We go to Minnesota every year for walleye. You are allowed 5 fish per day (in possession) with only one over 21 inches! Their year classes are incredible since the breeders are left in the population. And let me tell you I would rather eat a 14 inch walleye any day rather than those old, nasty hawgs!
