    another year of illegal fishing at the Duwamish

    Under the West Seattle Bridge where the Duwamish emties into Elliot Bay again another year of illegal fishing going on.
    Just like last year and the year before and before that....
    A great many anglers (they should be called SNAGGERS) are fishing without license's and they not only don't hide the fact, they seem to brag about it.
    When a school swims by, they use their over sized hooks to snag these fish anyway they possibly can running up and down the boardwalk to get to them. Some of these guys are only using hooks with weights !!
    When a wild Chinook was caught was caught on Sunday Aug. 28th, another angler told the guy it was wild so the guy catching it, cut off the fin and said " Not Anymore".
    Another fellow had 6 hooks on his line, all large enough to bank a sea lion. Others who saw this just laughed.
    I have never seen Fish and Game come down to check on anyone, not even the homeless guys who hide under the bridge with their home made net and net the fish by  hand.
    If you respect fishing as a sport or pay your license fee's because your honest, then please send an email to Fish and Wildlife about this location. The more complaints, the more likely they will come out.

    Thanks-- Sic Boy
