My 16 year old nephew was over at Matanuska lake today hanging out with some friends that had come down to from FBX to hang out with him. They were sitting around the waters edge and he picked up a pole that was laying there and was fidgeting with it while talking with his buddies. He was absentmindedly dipping it in the water. Note, there was no bait on the bare hook!!! The local LEO dirt bag came up and wrote him a $250 ticket for fishing without a license.
Sad part is this kid moved in with us and is working hard to get his life in order, working a full time job and trying to get his GED finished so he can start vocational school in the fall while paying us back for the car we purchased for him.
All I can say is Thank you so much for helping this kid get a leg up on life. And I appreciate you so much for protecting a bunch of infertile stocked fish from kids playing with a fishing pole and NO FRIGGING BAIT!!!
