    Why on gods green earth, would you possibly want to talk to a commercial fisherman???
    They are here, lurking in the shadows, soaking up information on our fishin holes so they can clean them out for us.

    Commercial fishing on the MO and Miss here in Missouri is illegal. Conservation stopped that in 1994 I think. If you want a professional Catman in Missouri try Rick Gebhardt. Just google him for a number.

    Well, if you're paranoid, then I guess I am too...LOL! Seriously though, I don't think there's anything paranoid about it. Unfortuantly it's just the truth.

    Just because you are paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you

    Exactly. You aren't paranoid if they really ARE watching you :what:

    Commercial fishermen are well regulated and the ones I know are hard workers. I respect their skill and have no problem with them.

    Just like folks in any other profession, most are great people, and a few are scum of the earth. I've actualy had to carry a rifle in the boat with me because a commercial fisherman felt that he had the right to dictate to everyone else on the river. He actually called himself 'King of the River'. He threatened me, I threatened him, and when he saw me putting my rifle in my boat, he quit harassing me and left me alone.
