    I respect the laws and game wardens as long as they are not the few trying to make a name for themselves! I am in the middle of a home remodel, live in a VERY rural area, nearest neighbors are 500 yds away and are my family, as I mentioned I am remodeling so I have a lot of scrap material to take to dump, have it in a pile in my field beside my house (wasn't paying 700 buck a week for a dumpster) and when the pile is big enough I haul it off to dump LEGALLY! Well a new opossum cop in our area stopped by and left a warning for me to get it cleaned up! This just rubbed me the wrong way, I keep my property very clean, kept and improving and I get a warning because I was waiting to take a full load rather than ten small loads! Why not go and stop real crime rather than messing with folks that are trying to improve their property?!

      It's just one more prime example of government over reach. America is now a bonafide police state. Take a look around.

        Technically If you have permission once to go fishing there you can go back at least 3 times but the 4th time you should probably ask. But that's just me. I don't know how all land owners are but my neighbors are pretty nice and probably wouldn't care if I fished at their pond without permission. Oh and the game warden thing is bullshit!

          Damn right man. When get down to it, it's legalized extortion. Nothing else.

            Do you think this is right? Public waters, no question. But if i build a pond on my land, pay to have it stocked with fish, I should be able to do whatever I want with it. Its mine!

              Guess it depends on the state but if the owner lets it be fishable to the public then you would need a license. Other than that if you own it then you don’t need a license. Some wardens are just plain idiots with to much power.

                You are just about right. Open any coolers or containers where fish or game may be kept, truck backs car trunks etc. As far as private ponds. the owner does not need a license to fish in it but the general public does
