Marine police pulled up next to me today while I was fishing the outside bar near the GE inlet. He asked me what I was doing out there , I told him I was fishing for striper. His reply was I should not be keeping any because according to him I was still in the inlet. I was at least 1/2 mile out and north of the inlet. Then he asked me if the boat I was in was mine (Mako 19) and I replied yes and asked him why? He said They have had reports of some guy named Jay in a Mako who reportedly has been poaching in the back bays.

If it came down to it, better make sure he notes the exact GPS location on the citation and confirm it with your GPS as well. Consider taking a photo of the your GPS screen and send it to yourself for a date and time stamp. I think if you were to go to these lengths, the officer might reconsider the strength of his case. Glad it didn't get to that point. Everyone makes mistakes.

What are they Marine police or state police?

Police

Why are we paying police to do fish and game jobs? I see so many state police boats out in the bay now then ever before what a waste of tax money. I guess that is why they are doing fish and game jobs to collect some revenue we really do not need state police out there. I would rather see more coast guard and fish and game. Oh by the way where are the trees out there ?
