So now the guy that lives in the bog has a family? This is turning into quite the fairy tale. I'm pretty sure he's just another vagrant breaking the law.

Ah they won't come and do anything about this guy. He doesn't have the money to pay a fine. There are much easier marks at the boat ramp....it's never been about saving the resource, it's about the money. Didn't the MLPA fiasco prove this?

Yep. I used to watch SDPD step OVER transients pissed drunk on the boardwalk with GLASS bottles to bust some preppy kid holding a beer and TOUCHING the sea wall while standing in the sand where it was legal.

Sherm, next time you have a chance, talk to a San Diego City PD officer and ask him who you should call. Before I retired, there were regular patrol officers and also POP officers in my department who knew how to deal with this situation. Some patrol officers know the DFW regs in and out. And some POP officers may be assigned to homeless enforcement/policing. Keeping undersize, fishing without a license, fishing with unattended lines, fishing with too many lines, etc. are all misdemeanors. The bail on misdemeanors can be "stacked" to increase bail and time in jail. If you let some people slide, where do you draw the line?

Jim
it's illegal to fish with too many lines? whats the limit?

Don't know what the law is on how many lines, hooks, etc but I do know the regs on undersized fish. He kept just about everything except the rays.

Problem is how do you get blood out of a rock? The guy lives in the bushes and has nothing but a suitcase to his name. You write him a citation and he'll never show and you won't know where to find him. He's completely off the grid.

If a homeless guy is fishing for food, and not wasting the fish, i really don't give a crap. JMO. Beats eating out of a trash can, or begging on the streets. Its not like he is taking endangered species. He's taken what most consider trash fish. I say let the poor SOB be.

I guess we should let rob a bank too. After all he is just trying to get some money to buy food.


Plus......"trash fish" have their place in the ecosystem too. It's all connected. My humble opinion of course.

At least the DFW is good at follow up. Just got a call asking for info on this guy. Sounds like they have run into this guy before.

Crazy hungry guy breaks fishing regs and you suggest filing a false police report to get him locked up and registered as a sex offender.

Get a grip. What you are suggesting is many times worse than what this poor guy did. You gonna feed his family while he's doing time for false charges?

For all we know he is a small time commercial fisherman with a small time street taco vending business. This is quite unlikely, but given this mans description I will give him the benefit of the doubt. Especially if he is keeping the lizards.

how can you tell someone is homeless or an illegal? because sometimes i wear clothes so old i think people assume im homeless and one guy asked me if i was here legally before hahahahahahahah
btw not trying to start an internet war.

Because I'm a horrid racist (if you stereotype someone as homeless is that racism or something entirely different?)

Or one of my best friends growing up became an officer for the DEC in NY and told me as much.... your call either way.
