I guess it would depend on the tone of your voice.

wow thats great..then do you agree that there should be no trout fishing within 1000ft of working birds? or schools of trout? i highly doubt it..why? cuz it will effect YOUR fishing fun ..but you don't seem to mind regulating other people's fun? what are ya a democrat?

as for your guide buddies harvesting 3000 reds between 5 boats....its would seem that if you actually cared the about the redfish you would be making a topic about guides raping the fishery for their own profit than instead of how far people fish from a weir......

You've preached for years that Big Lake's fish population could not be affected by rod 'n' reel. I'm confusioned.

If you want to reduce the number of Red's caught at the wier..........................

Up the fine to $ 1000 each for everyone in the boat.

W..... usally I agree with you but, I can tell you from experience guides have takin way more than 3000 redfish a month from the wiers and probably even more off the east and south banks. You should know our redfish population is by far in no harm considering the last couple years we have had on biglake. If people wanta fish the wiers by all means let them. Alot of people enjoy knowing they can go there and put there kids and friends on fish pretty easy. Theres plenty of other places to catch them on the lake.

The laws allow people to fish the weirs.
It is legal to drive 70 on the interstate, but people still get in wrecks.
If it's legal, biching about it on here ain't gonna help..
If I don't find fish where I want to fish at, I won't hesitate to fish where
I know they are.
I paid for my boat and gear, I am gonna come home with some meat.
As long as it's legal, no one is gonna stop fishing there.
Crying about it on the internet is not going to stop it either.
Them weirs are everyone's back up.

I think if it was a serious problem the wildlife & Fisheries would have already addressed the situation......they are not worried about it and neither am I.

guide tied up to the post where the sign used to be, fishing Reds. Every time.
