I was fishing in a swampy marshland behind Woodmere Golf Course the other day, catching small stripers, which was fun on such light tackle. What I saw on the other side of the bank disgusted me. Two guys fishing live peanuts under floats, culling these small bass (12 - 15 inches). Catching one after the other and tossing them in their bucket. At first I thought maybe they don't know, so I called across - "Hey only one at 28 inches", with such small fish around I didn't see the point in stating the 1 over 40" too. These guys just ignored us, even after repeatedly warning them.
I swore I had the DEC's number in my phone, but could not locate it when it mattered. That really bothered me. I know various numbers have been given out on this board, but I would appreciate someone advising me again the Hotline for the DEC.
