    I didn't think the Corp of Engineers was an enforcement agency. Seems they would have to get a state law enforcement official to issue a citation.

    I had a lock worker tell me a few weeks ago that they didn't mind if you moved up beyond the 300' mark to catch bait, they just didn't want you fishing past the mark. On the other hand my buddy got a ticket in the mail a couple weeks ago for precisely doing just that. He was on the IL side catching bait and a lock worker told him to look forward to a ticket in the mail for it...
