Here it is!! Black & White… you may not like it but here’s the facts. Most of the older generations done the bank lines, limb lines, yoyo’s, jugs and trotlines.
Back in the day that’s how we had to eat. Regardless if you bank lines, jug fish or rod and reel fish we all have the same possession limit with the exception of commercial fishermen.
Every method of fishing has the potential of taking more fish than allowed. Now I’m going to tell you a little secret, I like Jug fishing. I stay with my jugs and at Silver Lake in highland I catch allot of bullheads which have no limits on but Most of my Channel catfish are over 5 and even ten pounds with a few under 5 but I release any channel catfish over 5 pounds.
I use jugs to test bait enhancers or other baits against Shad or other panfish to determine if their claims are valid (I:e 15 Shad 15 enhancer)
Regardless I bought my license and have that right as long as I play by the rules. NOW with that being said I’m all for conservation it needs stricter rules but screaming and yelling and cussing someone is not going to win you any popularity contest. I used ALL methods of fishing way back and I took a beating by a few holier than thou but not by Lyle Stokes we had many many conversations talking about this and that changing the methods and thoughts about CPR and some of the fishing methods.
Your not going to Change someone’s mind yelling, screaming and being an asshole.
