Went down to Flam City tonight to try some bank fishing about 7:00 p.m. About 10:15 p.m. I see a flash light walking towards me, It's a cop. He tells me that the park closes after dark and that I have to leave. I told him in a very polite way, that the last time that I was ran off I called MDC the very next day. And they said I have every rite to be there as long as Im fishing and not drinking or loitering. And that MDC owns Flam City but is patrolled by the Arnold police dept. The cop went on to say that if I dont leave he will issue me a citation. I then asked him if he gives me a citation can I stay and fish ( again very politly knowing the citation would be thrown out after he talked to MDC) He said " If I write you a citation Im going to take you in and all your poles and equipment tonight" I can tell now that the cop is getting pissed. I looked down at my poles and tackle and I had two of my best rod and reels with me weighted it out in my head and said OK I will leave. But ! At that very time there was a small boat trolling buy I guess to see whats going on. I would say maybe 15 yards from bank. I told the cop that if I leave he should also. He said dont worry about anyone else. I can have all the truck and trailors towed or I can issue them a citation in the mail from their plates. I told him that if I leave that he better be writing down all the plates in the lot. He said " I might do that " I told him That I wish you would and that I wanted to see how popular he would be after that and smiled. He told me than in a loud tone " Do I tell you how to do your job" I said no. And you dont have to yell Im rite here. I then asked for his name and badge number and Ill be on my way. He then asked for my license, and I helped him spell my last name. He gave me my license back along with his card, and asked what I was going to do with that information. I told him he will be hearing from me tommorow. While I was loading my equipment I seen him over at the lot acting like he was taking plate numbers down. Even though I didnt get a bite and they probably werent going to any time soon, I wanted to fish. It seem as though Flam city is only open to boats at night. Im going to go down and take pictures of all the signs during the day tommorow. Not one sign says Park closes after dark. But their is a sign sayin that the boat ramp closes one half hour after sunset. So it sounds that the cop has got it backwards and that he should be giving out citations for anyone using the ramp after dark and leave the bank fisherman alone. Now I think it great that the cops patroll the lot. Their are many times Im out in my boat after dark and know my truck and trailor are safe. This is just a bad cop Tommorow I will be going to the police dept to make a complaint on the officer. Along with MDC to tell them about the harrasment of bank fisherman at Flam City. Maybe I can get them to talk to the police dept and tell them the rules of a MDC PARK.
