We need to post the names and if they are rec or comm. it matters

I’ve always said that. Then have all the local tackle shops post photos of them in there places of business and ban them for life.

If that was the norm it would discourage many many from not following the rules. The embarrassment would be enough for most to never break a law

I'm not so sure about this.  I know a couple comm guys who got bagged by EPOs in the last 5 years.   These guys wear it like a badge of honor.  No one shuns them.

Since the epos made the arrests, I dunno where the name info gets posted. But i would assume its a matter of public record like any arrest by town or city cops. 

.

Right.  EPO made the arrest and he was booked at the Bourne State Police Barracks.

If they were actually at all serious about these requirements then for hire and private charters would also have to abide by the same circle hook regs.

They do!

only one solution,find for every fish $1000 and ban from fishing USA for 10 years.

What would be the purpose of carrying a knock off like that while fishing? Robbery of your plug bag? 


Do we really need an EPO to have to squeeze a few rounds off at the canal at night?

Maybe they are scared of the rats and mink and want protection. 
:point:

But most likely they’ll use it to intimidate someone out of their fishing spot.
