Big Brother is watching you boat!
Every day, I become a little more wary of our government and that's been going on for a long time.

2. They could just ask
me when and where I fish. Wouldn't help them find any fish.

I can't see any reason for the guberment to do this. I'll bet it's a jealous spouse or a bank loan company.

5. the first comment beneath the article
Edited on Sat Feb-12-11 10:31 PM by Dot Com
is pretty informative. Seems the guy has a history of over fishing. Once they're gone, they're gone forever. Maybe he should have his comm fishing license revoked, if that first comment under the story is true.
