The Fish and Boat Commission has a new, easy way to arrest people. First, they watch the papers when and where they are having a kids fishing derby. Then they wait with binoculars in hand and when the fathers bring their sons and daughters from big enough to walk to 12 years of age to spend a day with those kids the creepy crawly wardens come out of hiding an spoil a day with their kids by arresting the fathers for every little infraction they can observe that most of the fathers weren't even aware of.
Doesn't it make one wonder with those kind of wardens patrolling why he would spend $20-plus for a fishing license plus an eight dollar trout stamp just to take his kids fishing and get arrested for 80 or more dollars. Those wardens must feel real good arresting eight to 10 fathers spending their day with their kids who were trying to keep them kids from being couch potatoes or on a street corner sucking on a pot pipe. It make a person wonder why those creepy crawly wardens would be at a kids fishing derby other than to be helpful and supportive for the kids. Instead of harassing people at kids fishing derbys, why aren't they out on the lakes and streams where the real outlaws are taking over their limits. It looks like those creepy crawly wardens are glued to their truck seat and take the easy way out.
