Just walked down Newport Pier and saw an Asian family pulling up a hoop full of short crabs and putting them in their cooler. I told then they were short and the ignored me. So I walked away and called Caltip. I hate poachers!!!!!

Yup! Im asian and Ive noticed that too. poachers come in all colors but Ive noticed that most of the ones I run into and try to educate on state laws are asians that really dont understand english.

But, yes! I hate poachers!
Also, I and other anglers have called "caltip" and they dont do crap.

    I asked a FG guy at Lake Dixon why he wasn't checking licenses of those that weren't displaying them (back when we had to) on the dock. Response was, "Why would I. I'll get a fake name and address and will probably have to call to get an interpreter". They won't pay the ticket and won't show.

    We have a two sets of laws by default.

    I see it too on piers; some of the fish are so small they probably evaporate in a poof of steam when cooked...better posting of regulations and good practices in 15 different languages would be good :)

    Asians are by far the worst offenders. If their not poaching themselves and playing dumb or pretending not to speak English. They buy illegal seafood from the Indians making a market for another group of poachers. They take more than their share at all our public beaches.

    We just had a huge bust where the Indians were selling undersized and female crab to the " nail salons". Just because your Asian don't act like it isn't true.

    so growing up working on the pier and fishing it i have seen way to much of this. and with out trying to sound racist the small amount of english speaking poachers were able to understand what they were doing wrong and stopped doing it.. but for some reason if they were any non english speaking people they just ignore you even if they know what your saying they act like they dont. i have been in to many fights for throwing fish back that did not belong to me but after last summer i will throw back more then ever. after yelling at some people that were taking short lobsters in july with a rod i had a Asian guy walk over and in very broken english he said "this is your ocean and if you dont stand up for it they will never stop taking everything they can get there hands on"

    everyone poaches and it sucks to say but it seems alot of these people are foreign non english speaking. or at least thats what i read about on the dfg site an its what i see going on every day

    Btw the DFG told me they had officers in the area and they were sending someone out. I was out with my lady so I didn't stick around to check if they showed, but the lady on the phone almost seemed half annoyed that I was calling..

    I was out with my other asian buddy and he called caltip and the dispatcher told him; "we'll send a warden out "tomorrow" to check." LOL They showed up a week later and guess who they checked? Me! LOL

    I agree with what your saying. A common thread in a lot of those cases are non-english / poor-english / pretend-to-not-speak english. I believe this is because the poachers come from a country where there are no laws. Our there are laws but ppl do whatever the fuck they want to anyways and assume they don't have to follow the rules here.

    OP did the right thing to call it in.

    Friggin' Irish! Guy was down here throwing a net for smelt. Called CalTip and the warden was down here within 10 minutes. Didn't catch him in the act but confiscated the net. BTW: Last year they were selling throw nets at the O'side Walmart.

    so say your on the pier and see some poaching going on, is there anything illegal with just walking up to them, take there catch, and tossing it back in the water.
    i would imagine the poachers would not be too happy but if dfg is not going to do any thing ?
