I like the idea of photographing the offenders (preferably with a clear view of their faces) and posting the pics and/or sending them to the DFO.

DFO is fully aware of whats happening out there and turning a blind eye.The best thing that could happen now is some heavy rains to flush the system out and end what has been the worst i have ever seen.

You should carry some protection in case you get harassed by the poachers. I hear bear spray is good.

--Please put the blame where it belongs on DFO political Bosses. If DFO is given the bodies and direction they would be happy to do their job.
--Write a letter to your MP for DFO and MLA for CO's

--Let them know how much this is costing them to allow this kind of paractice. Even local tackle shops should be concerned because they don't make as much money on a person with a big hook, piece of yarn and a snagging pole as they would with legit fishers trying every lure, fly, and fishing method to try and get the fish to bite!

I wonder if the dfo would be willing to pay to train and uniform volunteers who would be willing to donate their time to patrol our rivers and bust these people.I would sign up in a heartbeat so would my son.The province could also do this for volunteer Co's to patrol our lakes where we know there is also poaching going on.

Oh my goodness.  Did he kiss the fish or headbutt it?   ???

I really think we need more of these vids showing folks on our local flows.
