The one in the middle was probably just making sandwiches for the other two. Should you lose your license for making sandwiches on a poaching expedition?

If she had been making sandwiches they probably wouldn't have kept so many. You know how you always spend more at the grocery store when you go in hungry? Same thing, this is all on her!

Yep, poaching is one thing but poaching for profit takes it to an entirely different level of scumbaggieness. Yet, there will be plenty come to their defense.

I hope they get thrown under the jail, but lets be serious. They will get a plea deal and this will go away. They should fine them so much that even if the judge decided to let them get a fishing license again, they would not be able to afford to go fishing.

There is no defense for a person like this, period.

I didn’t see anything referencing where they were selling them for “profit”. There were 3 guides with 9 out of state (paying) fisherman. My hunch is that the guides were letting the paying customers keep as many as they caught, hoping for a big tip at the end. And the guides obviously didn’t think they would get caught

I would bet they were contacted by the out of state anglers and the guides juiced the cost for the trip saying they could catch unlimited at x $ amount. or the anglers caught the limit and said here's a couple grand if we can go all day either way that's a no no.

Right, I guess I meant the weren’t selling them for profit in the commercial sense, ie to restaurants or meat markets to be resold to the general public etc. It was profit for the guides, just in the form of a large tip.

A lot of the popular members are cops so the game wardens probably just give them a HIGH FIVE instead of a citation and we never hear anything about it

You think they should increase the limit to a foot on crappie? Strongly disagree here. Out of curiosity, why do you feel this way?

lol. I'm not saying they didn't have 508 crappie but can you confirm that?

You act like guides that keep under size fish and more than the limit are worried about if their limit counts or not....

And as a disclosure statement, I didn't read the article
