Although a guy I see that works at Berry's has pointed out a few and said they were "undercover" conservation officers, I guess looking for snagging or some such.

I forgot about the undercover guys, maybe they're out there more than I realize.  I wonder if when they see a violation, do they write up the offender themselves or call in a uniformed officer?

Wondering the same thing....I'm guessing probably both depending on the infraction.

they would have to write it up themselves despite breaking their cover. if they ignored it they would be violating their mandate as well as law and policy.

Jacked, that's my point- they could discretely radio / call a colleague, and stay undercover. But I think we might be over-thinking this- fish cops are not homicide detectives :)

They are out there, even off duty.  Two buddies of mine were bb'ing Spaghetti Bar last year and buddy #1 lands a spring. Guy fishing beside him says "Better make sure you mark that on your license"  "Doesn't matter", buddy #1 replies as he marks his tag "you never see DFO out here anyways" "Oh..." says guy.      

Buddy #2 tells Buddy #1 "I know that guy. He is a DFO Fisheries Officer and fishes here on his days off" :)
