This kinda goes along with my other thread about getting permission to fish. I remember many years ago, when I was like 15 or 16, me and my buddies would just fish anywhere we wanted, never even thought about asking for permission..that was over 30 years ago, even tho it was not right, I dont think people cared as much..Plus there was not a house every 100 yds along the river I fish. But I remember when I was around 17, fishing one night, and something just did not feel right. I kept looking over my shoulder for someone to come and run me off, I guess I was growing up:smile2: Since that day, I dont think I have ever been on someones land that did not know I was there. Plus fishing is alot more relaxing without worrying about getting caught:big_smile: But I do wish there was more public access areas for bank fishermen, on our public rivers.
