This past monday one of my friends and myself were out on the Yadkin River in between the Buck Steam Plant and Highrock Lake crappie fishing. We were in behind an island fishing a small hole (approximately 60' in diameter) off of a point that is known for holding crappie this time of year. After probably 15 minutes of fishing another boat pulls up well within casting distance and the gentlman on it begins fishing. Shortly after his arrival he recieves a telephone call and I hear him tell someone his location. Just minutes later another boat arrives, pulls up in between us and the other boat and the occupants of it, which include two grown men and a young boy begin fishing. After about two hours which during the time they crossed our lines various times due to crowding in beside us, they said they were leaving. The young boy got in the boat with the older gentelman who arrived first and they left. Once they were out of sight the boat with the two remaining men crunk up and started to leave and immediately pulled up behind us and announced they were wildlife enforcment officers. They were not in uniform or there was not any type of markings on their boat to verify that they were who they said they were. One of them did very briefly display some sort of badge but put it back in his pocket before either one of us had a chance to see what it said on it. After they checked our catch and safety equipment they asked to see our fishing license. My friends had unknowingly expired and the officer said he couldn't write a ticket that day because he didn't have his ticket book with them. He took a picture of my friends drivers license and a picture of his face and said he would contact him later in the week to issue his citation. After they left we pulled up anchor and headed back to the York Hill boat landing to head home. Upon arriving at the landing the men were standing at the landing and I asked them for some cards with there name on them and which counties they worked in. One of them would not offer any information as to whom he was or what county he worked in and the other one showed some form of ID of a man in a wildlife officers uniform but it really didn't appear to be the same guy to me. I finally got the one with the ID to say he worked in Davidson and Rowan counties and he answered for the other guy and said he was from Mecklenburg county. As we were tying down my boat I noticed the boat the men were in loaded on a trailer being towed by a white ford expedition. As we were leaving the parking lot the man and the boy pulled up to the landing. The men claiming to be officers was a rather large black man carrying a pistol, he's the one who wouldn't give up any information. The other guy was a medium build white man with dark hair and a mustache trimmed to the corners of his mouth. The young boy appeared to be around 8-12 yrs old and wore glasses. The man in the boat by himself was an older man with gray hair and a gray beard, his boat was a green polarcraft alumminum boat with the words DAILY DEVOTION on the side in white lettering. The other men were also in a green polarcraft boat. I do not know if they were really wildlife officers, in my opinion they didn't show sufficient idenification. If it is the case that they were not now there is someone who has my buddies information that could be used against him. I called the main enforcment office in Raliegh and spoke to someone about what happened. They said they were going to check in on it and see what was going on in the area. If they were in fact officers I think they were very unprofessional in the way they handled the situation, not to mention the fact that they could have endangered the well being of a minor should something had went wrong with there little stake out they did. If you are in the area and are approached by anyone of this nature you have the right to ask them to show sufficient ID and you have the right to hold it and examine it until you are satisfied that they are actually officers of the law. I didn't know that until I called Raliegh yesterday. I will most definitely keep an eye out for them or other suspicious people around me while on the water from now on.
