    So why no arrest? Why the leniency? If word gets out that they’re cracking down, then it might slow them down???

    We need a show with the song “Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do when they come for you!”

    They knew they were busted. They were just playing dumb! Sounds like a day on any pier with the “bucket brigade” with “take your pick” ethnicity with an accent acting like they don’t know the rules or “no habla.”

    Like any major holiday where they have an all out effort to stop drunk driving with sobriety checks......There should be “poaching checks.”

    But just like the argument that sobriety checks don’t stop drunk driving, but I do believe they help. So I do think some type of all out effort to stop poaching will also “help” but not stop.

    I feel like F&G is a joke here in SD. In Ventura County and Orange County, I feel like I get checked every time I go out. In SD, I've been checked once while at Sunset cliffs and maybe one other time (probably not if I can't remember)
    If you go back in the lobster thread, I posted how I had to call the game warden on this one guy for using 4 hoops and 2 poles at the same time and keeping shorts. I recently was checked by the same officer and he recognized me from last year. According to him, a lot of these cases get lost in the courts because they don't have enough evidence against the perpetrators. Apparently, the game warden came back a week later after I called him
    last year and caught the same guy using more nets and poles AGAIN, but this time, they caught him with undersized lobster in his possession. Apparently this particular officer is pushing the district attorney to revoke his license for the next five years in addition to fines and seized gear.

    To be honest I've never seen a crab out here in SD. After talking to the older gents on the pier, they always say something like "back before you were born, I would catch (insert crazy amount of fish/lobster/crab/Loch Ness monsters here)". Sigh.

    Can we form our own brand of enforcement?

    The SDFish Lobster Guardian Angels? We can have cool t-shirts and berets and enforce our own brand of frontier justice......

    Hold the perps until the good guys arrive.......if they don’t, oooops the gear mysteriously takes a swim and the poached lobsters are released.

    We can get deputized like the “Regulators!”

    By the way, I had a long talk with a warden and office woman at Fish and game in Kearny Mesa. I asked him about empowering me/deputizing me and other members of the forum… They all laughed however I told them about people running back-and-forth with limits and getting more limits and going back with shorts etc. on our piers.

    They are interested in revenue enhancement, not enforcement.
