Weather woes and Wild Garlic

Well no fishing this weekend. Only a persistent east wind and rain. No perch fry, no walleyes. I think that if the weather is still bad next weekend I’ll just have to suck it up and try and put a few percidaes in the tub regardless. In the meantime, I found this while reading up on Canada’s loss to the Czechs. Man the surprise this guy must have had when he got nailed with a 1500$ fine for picking wild garlic. Without trying to play the devil’s advocate, aren’t there more pressing matters to worry about? I mean I like wild garlic and all but stories like these (click on FishOntario Message board and look for post called “Nipissing Gill Nets”) are poping up all over fishing forums and local papers and they are to me much more alarming. Here’s another example of a story I found on a forum…

“Hey guys earlier today i drove out to Millbrook a small village close to peterborough and took my dog for a walk near some trout streams i will be fishing next weekend, scouting it out, and checking water depths etc when i see 2 guys in camo. Thinking there either hunting for turkeys illegally on a sunday or there poaching for trout, they see me and duck in the woods so i cant find them, then i find 2 fishing rods and a half gallon bucket filled with 5 or 6 browns and brookies flapping around, I grabbed the bucket and tossed the alive ones back into the water and mouthed these guys off. They were about 17 or 18 and were scared shitless i was gonna call the cops on them bla bla bla. In the end i walked away and told them i was calling the cops on them, as soon as i said that, they said they would pack up right away and leave. It is idiots like these that that wreck our resources. ”

Some of the replies suggested snapping their rods. I wouldn’t have felt any pity for those two asses had this guy done so. Still, kudos to you buddy for having the guts to confront these lawbreakers and throw the fish back in.

    in his response that he wekrod in Radio Shack at one time, where he sold John Gillette lots & lots of computer supplies. However, I’m pretty sure that I know who you are, and I was so sorry to hear about your dad. He was a very fine man, gone way too soon. I was always fond of your mom as well, and I remember her two pretty daughters.I think eventually someone will buy the Gillette house on River Road and renovate, but probably not for the asking price of $85,000 or whatever it is. The house needs way to much work to sell for that amount. If they drop the price on down to $40,000 or something, I believe some industrious young person will snap it up and start the renovations. I drove by it a few days ago and noticed that a lot of the overgrown bushes have been cut back away from it, and the house itself looks solid just a lot of water damage, and a new roof will definitely be needed.
