who would go to jail?

15 posts in this topic

Last summer we took a friend and his daughter (she is 23) fishing with us. We assumed that they were legal. However, last weekend while sitting at our favorite watering hole he was telling someone that he has never had a fishing license. What happens if we get checked and he does not have a license? Do they just fine him or do they take it out on the poor person that owns the boat and has no idea what is going on? They are all excited about going fishing again with us this summer and I really enjoy them but not enough to get a fine for them.

I dont know what a C.O. would do! But I think another ? remains. Would you "even" consider taking them fishing again ? They may have put you and your property in jeopardy because they cant part with a few dollars for the privledge of fishing. Then to bragg about it is the icing on the cake. I myself would feel ashamed of such a thing. I would rethink the word friend in consideration of these people. Only my .02
Good Luck

Ninetoe is right. If the individual won't part with the price of a license he doesn't belong on the water period... Nobody gets in my boat without a license...

I have to agree, how do you feel when he sits in your boat and catches more fish than you, or any fish for that matter? And here you sit paying for your privilege to fish. Essentially he is stealing from you and everyone else. Tell him to get one or you don't feel it is appropriate taking thief fishing in your boat.

Ditto the above. The couple fooled you once. A repeat makes you the fool. It is their responsibility to be responsible.

Dont you just love it when friends put you in that position. Call them up and invite them to go again. Then make it clear they will need a license. I think you are feeling uncomfortable haveing to tell them they need to be legal. Dont be! Dont let it nag on you, call them and get it over with. smile.gif
Whats the worst he can do. Slip an onion in your sandwich? grin.gif

Whoa..."Fool me once, shame on you..Fool me twice, shame on me"!
And you could lose your whole rig(boat,motor,trailer,equip,and even the vehicle you towed it there with + the fine) if the CO got real uptight about it!

the folks here are right. if those people don't have any more respect for you or the great resources in minn, let them sit home. tell them to buy a license and make them show it to you. del

I also agree, people that fish should always have a license. The question was whether or not he would get in trouble because of his friends stupidness. The CO's would ticket him, and you would be free to fish.

I agree with all of you! I just could not believe that anyone would risk going out without a license besides the fact that they are not paying their dues to help like all the rest of us are. They are not going with me again without one that is for sure. I just wanted to know how close I came to being behind bars. grin.gif But if he puts an onion in my sandwich that would be even worse! There just is not enough beer in the cooler to take care of that problem. Thanks guys!

It depends on the CO. I know CO's that would at least attempt to make life miserable for both of you and have known others that would take the offender for a ride to get him a license, fine him and tell him to have a good day. The second scenario happened to a friend of mine a few years ago who, in the excitement of getting out for early season crappie fishing, made an honest mistake and just plain forgot to get his license.
If put in your position, I would simply explain to him that by choosing not to obey the law he is potentially putting your reputation at risk and that's just not what one expects from a friend.
Then I'd get the cell phone out and dial the TIP line to make sure he got the point.

I am not certain that you as the host are responsible for or liable for checking your partners for a fishing license?

They are aware they are fishing and therefore should reasonably know that regulations need to be obeyed.

It would appear to be more of a case of personal accountability then a case of fault of the host for not asking if they are in compliance with state regulations.

Guilt by association shouldn't apply if you are in compliance.

If they were to tell the CO that you knew all along they had no license and have never had one, you may be liable for aiding and abeding in the unlawful taking of fish! Like the others have said, put it to them straight forward, no license, no fishing!!

Hey PWaldow do you think I could convice the husband that the cooler is too small so we need a bigger boat to hold a bigger cooler? Maybe that would get me that new Lund?

    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
