Poaching Violation

Not sure how to report this to the Fish Commission, but I saw a fisherman on the Susquehanna River catch and keep an American Shad...they are supposed to be strictly catch and release, and there was no way this one got put back. Luckily I got some pictures of the offender, unfortunately he has a common face and could be hard to ID.




Here he is checking out his spot:

Now getting ready to fish:

He tried catching it behind the bushes so I couldn't see him:

Look at that guilty face:

clearly NOT releasing the shad:

ospery 6 (1 of 1) by GRousedog20, on Flickr

Karma is rough though as two juvenile Bald Eagles harassed him and presumably stole the fish.

Catch-and-Release wild trout.
