I felt the same way first few times I called.  Was worried about what effect that fine or other consequences might have for someone just trying to catch dinner.  


I'm more impressed that they responded to the call.  Don't know where you were but I gave up calling in New Haven unless they were repeat offender or poaching.  Had better results just explaining why it was illegal and sometimes embellishing the consequences of getting caught. 


Also never had NY DEC officer respond to calls in brooklyn or queens.  Honestly don't think they will unless we start paying for licenses.  Also think they rightfully have bigger fish to fry.
