Hello BD Brothas. I recognize this is not a fishing report, but I just wanted to make sure to get the word out and give y'all a heads up that the Anacortes Police Department has taken it upon themselves to use WA Park as a means to raise the city's revenue by starting to issue tickets @ WA Park. That new machine they installed does not read my card, and I was issued a $50 ticket on Saturday because I had no cash to pay for parking. So I paid $58 to park ONE day there. I have NEVER had problems like this in the past. I went straight to the police station after the ticket was issued and no police officer would agree to meet me @ the station to talk to me about it. Hmm? There wasn't an officer inside the station? The whole thing is complete and utter bullshit. I don't even understand how the city has jurisdiction in a state park, and they never gave me a straight answer on that. I raised hell w/ everyone invloved and they essentially told me that I can contest it, but they know damn well I'm not going to take a day off of work to travel up to ANA from SEA and probably only get it reduced, if that. I talked to another angler as I was going off on the Fish and Game agent (She told me they are issuing tickets OFTEN now), and he told me the same thing happened to him recently, and he also had no choice, but to eat it. I'm beyond pissed off because everyone involved knows I did not deserve that fucking ticket. Fucking assholes stealing the working man's money.
