It's idiots like this who ruin fishing for everyone out there doing it the right way by actually following the rules and just trying to have a good time.

There's one thing about the game wardens in Texas....they don't mess around!!
I watched a game warden at Calaveras Lake (outside of San Antonio) stop 3 fishermen in a boat as they were leaving the lake park. After some searching of the 3 coolers, they found about 20 largemouth bass that were undersized. After careful calculation, he handed the boat owner a ticket in the amount of $3500. When the owner said that he didn't have that much money on him, the warden asked for his keys to the truck and parked it next to the office, telling the owner "when you come back with the payment for the fine, you can have your keys back". The truck and boat were gone the next time I went to the lake a few days later.

We could use some Texas-style law enforcement on our lakes.

Nawww....you don't want those guys/gals wandering around Ontario lakes. They don't play very nicely, and they ALL carry firearms too.
