Hello FWC, anyone out there?
250 fish trip limit, and how the heck to you catch 2000 pompano unless its a gill net?
So a report is made to FWC,(waste of time) and the tipster is told it is not worth investigating.
Hello, FWC anyone home????
Its the WPB/Stuart office. No help any time you call, and if you call they flub the case and most of the time tell the perp who turned them in.
Kind of like the story a few weeks ago when the same tipster called in a gill net being hauled off Stuart and got the same response from the same FWC office.
Looks to me like FWC is supporting the illegal commercial fishery North of the Palm Beaches, so if you want to **** the resources without a license or want to ignore the law, this is the place to do it.
Fishery enforcement in the SE coast of Florida is a frigging joke, from NOAA Enforcement to FWC.
Don't believe me?? Do a craigs list search for swordfish for sale and you will find illegal dealers/fisherman selling right there in full view of NOAA enforcement. However this impotent joke of a law enforcement agency is only shadowed by our own FWC.
Next time they pull me over I will be turning my back to them and removing my pants!!!
