Took the motorcycle for a ride on Saturday to the East Branch. There had to be 15 cars there. I saw a Latino family by the bridge on the grass, the dad was fishing with bait so I told him it wasn't allowed. He ignored me and continued to fish. The signs with the special regulations do not have the DEP phone number and I don't have it on my phone. Literally 5 minutes later a Game Warden shows up. Talk about timing. He went right over to the father and spoke to him. He didn't have a fishing license or a watershed permit. No fine and no tackle taken. The warden asked me if I saw where the other people went and I pointed downstream. Off he goes and he came back with 12 other Latino people all with spinning rods and bait. No licenses and no watershed permits. Once again no fines and no tackle taken. I was happy that he spoke to them and made them leave. I used to fish that stream at least once a week even in the winter because I'm only 15 minutes away. It's sad to see it now, trees down everywhere and barely any fish. Now I know why there's no fish.
Tough to arrest someone for trying to get a meal I guess.
Laws only apply to people that follow them.
