There are a lot of fishermen down in the Maumee River right now that are playing the game the right way. They know the rules are in place for a reason, so they follow them.
There’s also a pesky minority in waders who think that for a few weeks each spring, anything goes.
They litter, they fish without a license, they intentionally snag fish or take too many fish, and then brag about their catch when it’s hanging on the stringer.
To the law-abiding majority, these guys are rotten. They spoil one of the signature rites of spring with their selfish and reckless actions.
Ask any sportsman splashing around in the river, and they’ll tell you the same thing: Don’t just throw the book at these cheaters, throw the whole library at 'em.
