It seems the snaggers are looking for proof that other methods of fishing actually work. With pics and the like. Well that's not going to happen. I will say that for the skilled angler willing to partake of the art of angling " there are fish for the taking. I have been bar fishing from mid august to now and will tell you my group has landed 8 springs in that time and had twice that many come and give the rod a dance without a good hookup. That is the nature of barfishing.
As for snaggers, whatever methods you are using, you KNOW exactly what you are doing and are hiding behind the legal definitions like a little sissy hiding behind ones mothers skirts. I went through my own fishing quest using the long leader method and there is no doubt what is happening. Many use this regulatory loophole to cover up a distinct lack in skill, patience or a sporting fair play code of conduct and see only the need to feed. Get over the fact that in some environments fish will not bite. Also be aware that given the right circumstances any fish can be enticed to take an offering if used correctly. Most snaggers do not feel the fish should have the right to make the first move.
