Lake Russell Slobs

Thread starter #1
Putting on at Pearl Mill last evening, there were about a half-dozen vultures playing defense at the ramp. Someone shot a bunch of nice-sized gar, then dumped the carcasses alongside the ramp for everyone else to enjoy. You sir or madam, whoever you are, are no sportsman/woman. You don't deserve to take advantage of the same public resources as the rest of us. Mama and Daddy should not have spared the belt on you. Shame!

It seems every season we hear about this sort stuff and it makes a bad impression for the sport.

You may be right, or not. Do you fish at Pearl Mill much? If not, I can bring you up to speed on what most likely happened.

Hi Ray,

I fish Russell 1-2 times a week, but that was only about the 3rd time I got on at Pearl. I'd love to hear your insights if you'd care to share 'em. Just a big mess and a big waste of the resource is all, IMO. But there may be something I'm overlooking.

For many years there have been a couple of real old black men that hang around Pearl Mill and people give them fish. Carp, Catfish, Carp, whatever. One of them feeds the Garr and carp to his hoggs. Some folks leave carp and Garr for him on right side of ramp. Maybe that was case. That's been happening for 20 years or more.
 
Well there you go ! I bow fished a handful of times...had good luck. Had absolutely nothing to do with the prize, so I quit. I used to drive thru the black side of town and give away fish. People loved it . I cant stand wildlife wasted. Started some good fights like that too.:hammers:.

I see that in lots of places. And it ain’t for hog food. It’s just trifling laziness.
