What part of "must be kept intact" do people not get?

I see this crap every day. Another issue why the old timers are getting fed up with new arrivals that disrespect the fish and the canal in this manner. This type of thing is a recent development.

seizing wire and their vehicle.

Five bass where caught at that location. All were cleaned on the spot by a woman who was with a group of three men.

If I describe them in detail, I suspect some here will have issues with it, so I'll just mind my P's and Q's.

What he said. I've seen more bass filleted on the rocks/beach this spring than in any time in recent memory. Then, the guys don't even toss the frames back in the water. They just leave them right there.
I don't get it either?

Were they legal at least?

Well, they can be cleaned (entrails removed) but not filleted. The bass has to go home intact, with head and tail remaining.

And did you bother calling the EP's considering they obviously weren't transporting them properly?
Did you bother informing them of the regulations?

If not then having seen this you are part of the problem.

The EPO's have a field office 30 seconds from the canal now, and it's often 'manned' well after midnight.

A few weeks back, someone was filleting 3 large bass not 15' from me. I was very polite, but told the guy what he was doing was illegal, and that the fish had to go home whole. Mr Bass Pro told me to "mind mine own effin business."
So, I did, and kept fishing.

And just what do you think Falmouth District Court will do to these people?
