So I was at Deshka yesterday. Things were pretty slow. In fact, the only multi-fish boat I saw was a guy trolling up and down the mouth area. He had his 10-12 yr old son with him. The guy had one fish, then landed another (he set the hook, but the kid did the last bit of reeling) and then kept fishing. Guys in a boat nearby questioned him about this. The guy responded that 'that last one was my son's fish' and 'you can catch and release as much as you want.' Very soon after, the guy jetted up the river, and later came back to the mouth to clean his fish, then left.
Both of his statements were wrong as far as the regs go, since he clearly set the hook on his "son's king" and the regs are very clear about limits and no fishing after taking a limit. Since he soon left, I think he knew he was in the wrong. But, had he continued to fish, I wonder what I would have done? I contemplated advising him of the regs (as I know them). If he persisted, then what? Report him later? Call the fish cops on the cell? Throw the anchor over his trolling line? What would the forum suggest?
BTW: I am not sure I see both of these violations the same, although both are violations. Right or wrong, helping kids fish is more acceptable. I just wish he'd let the kid do more than reel the last 10 feet.
