    I went down to Jordan Lake to do some fishing this morning and the Game Wardens were out in force and the sheriff deputies were right beside them so at 6:45 this morning I watched people ticketed for no license and BUI boating under the influence total about 6 people arrested and I don't want to guess how many tickets and rods the wardens took/wrote. The holidais in full swing and the idiots have already started. Oh by the way I caught a couple of channels 3-4 lbs and 12 keeper crappie. And had my license and fish checked 5 times before noon.

    They can check me 100 times as long as they nail the idiots on the water. That will be OK with me.

    Well, I'd like to feel that way, but if I got checked that many times, I'd probably start to take it a little personal!

    I wasn't mad at the wardens I have no problem with them doing their job ans I am glad thet are out there. It was the idiots throwing their beer cans in the water and one guy even puking that was killing me. They even came out to where I was fishing and I told em quick fast and in a hurry to leave me be yeah I listened to there smart remarks as they were leaving but they left me alone, they being the drunken morons. remeber this started at 6:45 in the morning.

    I would love to see more DNR on the waters here. Too many idiots that think its great to drink and boat!
    Glad DNR is cracking down more on some waters. Like many other enforcement divisions they too are very understaffed for the areas to be covered.

    I think if I got checked that many times in a day, I would start wearing my license pinned to my shirt in lamonate. Then if they wanted to check my stringer that many times they could pull it in and toss it out themselves. But would love to see them busting the dummies that are drunk and being a nuisance.

    I dont mind getting checked some, but I wish N.C. Wildlife officers could give you a dated sticker to put on your boat so that they could recognize that you have been checked like the Coast Guard does!

    I wish I saw people get checked around here more often for blatant violations. I've not been checked this season nor have I scene anyone else get checked.

    If I got checked 5 times by noon I'd get a little bit angry I think.

    I hate those drunken idiots glad that they were doing their job were you fished. Could've gotten hurt by them. I luckily have a private lake right behind my house, about 300 acres, trolling electric motor only. Wish i could get to spot to spot faster, but hey, I have a 12' jon boat and some guys have 20 foot bass boats with 250 HP motors that would rip the water right up lol.

    Ya know, if they would crack down big time like that all over the country during the holidays on the lakes, I bet they would stop being so busy and you could accually catch a fish on those days!

    I was standing on my boat at the marina tonight talking to the cops in the boat and a guy flys into the marina, a no wake zone. Cops said BYE, gotta go write a ticket!!

    Last night tatersalad from the the BOC and myself were fishing and around midnight we heard a boat and could not see it. Finally it came into view, not a single light on it.

    Idiot.

    Be careful out there folks. There are a lot of folks who take a boat out 2-3 days a year, and the 4th, Memorial Day, and Labor Day are the three!!

    I aint no idiot. I dont venture near any body of water on the 4th of July holiday
    If I know the idiots are going to be there in force, I know I wont be there to support them.
