It makes me sad that I was out 4 or 5 times in my first year fishing for winter steelhead and would not even consider keeping my first fish, wild or not.

This guy takes 6 illegally and gets caught bragging about it???

This was a guy who poached "steelhead" in Ohio. The runs there are huge compared to here. There is no comparison between the 2 fisheries. It has more comparable to someone bagging 6 over their limit of rainbows in Tunkwa or pinks in the Harrison. Not going to be a big uproar there. I agree it should be a bigger fine. The thing that bothers me more, is that there used to be a sense of shame and embarrassment when one got nailed breaking the law. Now the only thing that seems to matter is the size of the punishment. Conscience and the ensuing sense fo ethical behaviour is a thing most people have lost. Ethical behaviour is not something that is legislated, it is something that is learned and is transfered from one situation to another. Ethical behaviour is an extention of one's commitment to a civil society, where you behave in a manner that lessens your impact on all those around you and have the right to expect the same behaviour in return. It grows from the understanding that we are members of the same society and co-dependant for our well-being and continued standard of living.

But it's all about me, me, me, me & me. I don't care who or what I have to screw over to get the advantage, I'm going to do whatever it takes to come out ahead.

I'd screw over my own mother to be better than someone else; ethics be-dammed :thumbup:

*note sarcasim in the response!
