So yes Sunday the wind was rough, whilst I sit away with my set up. Some guy yanks out a short striper like 15" or so.
I start fighting some really weird fish I dunno looked like some freaky Sea Robin with spots? And black and white wings, yellow underlip?? When I put him back in the water he digged himself into the sand and vanished, very strange.
I continue fishing and then my brother says hey, his bag is moving. This guy takes another small striper and sticks him in the bag. I call DEC game and fishery and report the problem. About an hour an agent comes by and checks out my stuff and I've got nothing, so I say check that guy out.
The guy FLIPS! He starts throwing the dead stripers back in the water and the birds start picking at them. I asked the agent when he walked back how much the fine is he told me $500!!! WOWWW that'll definetly do the trick.
Poor stripers, at least the birds got to eat them.
But at least I did a good deed, if I didn't call DEC that guy could have killed 100's more stripers in his lifetime now that I think about it.
This reminds me of Zim's recent story but this time fishy justice was served!
On a lighter note, I REALLY need to get into some fish, all of October and so far November has been really dissapointing. Nothing bigger then 18" from me in the Striper category, one legal fluke in October, and that funky thing in November.
Late September was sooo good to me. Time to mope around.
