What would you do if you see an individual(s) not following the regulations. Would you talk with them and try to get them to do it right or would you call the Report A Poacher Line? Many of us would choose to not get involved but to stop poaching we all have to stand up for what is right.
Karen and I had to deal with such an occasion yesterday. I will spare you the details but we decided to call the Report A Poacher line to take action! We were immediately put in contact with a Conservation Officer who drove out to deal with the problem. We tried to get them to fish within the legal parameters but they were not interested. We would have been glad to leave it if they started to fish within the regulations.
The Conservation Officer was fantastic to work with. It is a very awkward situation but Fish and Wildlife Officers and Conservation Officers do need our help to police our waters.
Avoid confrontations! Photographs are always helpful and have the Report A Poacher number on your cell phone. 1-800-642-3800. Doing what is right is tough and never convenient!
