    First off let me say I try to keep me cool over certain things that happen when it comes to fishing. People have different views about differents things. Received a call from a buddy on this site this morning asking me to come to the lk. I knew he was irrate and a little pissed. Got there and he had 17 channels and blues in a tote (all dead). i noticed all the fish had there whiskers cut off. I don't know if this is what killed the fish but i have heard they would die if you cut there whiskers off. As we took more dead fish from the lk all of them had there whiskers cut off. 23 fish in all we found:embarassed:. While loading the boat back up a very nice old gentleman came up to us and starting talking and ask if we knew anything about the fish that we collected. We said no but he handed me note folded up and said this is what we need to know. the note contained the following.

    -1 NC Lisence Plate of truck and boat
    -Trk ID information and description of the two young men
    -the note he wrote that said: I watched two young men sitting jugs last Wed night while I was bank fishing and I noticed they were throwing everything back. I ask them if i could have a couple to take home for my family to eat and they said yes. They brought me two and said they were killing the rest. I asked them why and they said because they don't serve no purpose.
    He also left His information and a contact number. The very last thing he wrote was "Thanks for Caring".
    I contacted local law enforcement and the NC Wildlife Division of Law Enforcement this morning and I have a Wildlife Officer coming to the house this afternoon, to get the information.

    I then called the man on the piece of paper and his wife answered the phone and I asked to speak to him. As we spoke he said he wanted to do something but didn't know what to do. He said he done what he could but don't want to have to go to court. He also had a passion for catfishing when he was younger but he has gotten to old to fish and lost his boat due to money issues with him and his wife being retired and barely making ends meet. I then asked if he would be in for a afternoon/night of fun and excitement with me on my boat catching catfish at my expense:wink:. He said he would love it. I told him that is the least I could do for the good deed he did. I don't know how far this will go without his testomony in crt since he witnessed this but I have done what I can do. He also told me that he has been at the lk everday since then a couple times a day to see if he could catch anyone trying to find out who done this.

    This makes me so mad I can't see straight. I think I know who done this and many of you might know them or at least seen them if you fish local waters around here. :angry:

    I know how you feel. People like that deserve to have their licenses yanked for good.

    If they were setting lines, what did they think they were going to catch? I dont understand people like that.

    I have issues with people who also dont follow fishing laws. I was fishing below a spillway, and had some Snaggers, move in on me. They were snagging blues, which are a game fish where I am from. I keep the game wardens number in my phone. I do call. The game warden came down, and the guy swore he wasnt snagging them, but Treble hooks leave a good mark. I met the game warden at the top of the hill, and we both went down to talk to this guy. I dont know what happened after that.

    I applaud the older guys and your actions. I think we all need to be more aware of what is going on around us, and make a few more calls to the game wardens.

    Can't even imagine what would make someone do a thing like that. Catch fish just so you can kill them, just don;t make sense. Anyway Reps to you for taking that fella fishing.

    Thats a bunch of BS right there! I'd like to see those people that did that get a nice hefty fine and some community service and be forced to learn why catfish are important to so many of us. That makes me mad hearing about all that wasted fish someone may have needed to feed thier family, or a little kids first catfish:angry:

    Dont worry, they will get theirs, from the law. Or if not from them maybe some ol boys from the NC can pay them a visit. Alot of things can happen on a lake at night.

    trouble is most of the time if caught they will just get a slap on the wrist.

    It's people like that who give liners and juggers a bad name.

    Crap like that pisses me off so much, bad thing is this country is full of idiots who have no respect for anything.

    I can't say I blame you for being mad. I would be too. All creatures great and small are put upon this Earth with a purpose in mind. It's not up to us to understand what that purpose is and why. It's our responsibility to protect it and enjoy it for what it is. The deserve what ever legal punishment they get and I'm sure in the end, they will get the rest of what is to come. Things have a way of working themselves out in the long run. You did a good thing in making that call and an even better one in offering to take the gentleman for a fishing trip. Rep points to you and thanks for doing your part in protecting nature as it should be.

    Man I hope something does get done. So I take it that these people are doing this thing all over? Yeah, pretty dumb to jug for a fish kill it for no reason, any kind of fish.

    Well, you did what you could and hopefully that'll lead to something.

    Thanks for hooking the old man up with a fishing trip - keeping the real catmen's reputation high in regards to others!

    everything comes back to us twice fold....................these individuals will pay the price in some manner. It is very fortunate that they were caught and hopefully people will be looking for them
