Dang... Looks like you struck a raw nerve kid !!!! I wonder how many people actually went driving around looking for that pond ??? I cant believe his friend put cameras up to catch people.
Some people don't have anything else to do but worry about what everyone else is doing. You are wrong for yelling at, insulting and threatening this kid for catching YOUR fish.
If you are so worried sell your house , move to the country and build your own pond. Put posted signs all over and never let anyone in.... That way nobody can fish it but you, and only for catch and release purposes. BTW you better be sure to feed them enough sack food, because they will start aggressively competing for natural forage very soon and a pond that small will get stunted easily.
Good job kid, what this gentleman forgets is that we as fishermen are supposed to be passing the sport of fishing on to younger people, not yelling at them and threatening to have them arrested because he wasn't wearing his name tag for the picture .Did anyone ever think that maybe he didn't want the whole online community to know his name? JUST LIKE NOBODY KNOWS YOURS OLD SCHOOL CAJUN. There were other ways to handle this situation. Even if he did harvest 2 or 3 fish, its not the end of the world. Get over it, he was with his friend and completely legal. You Sir, are the reason young people get turned away from fishing. You should be ashamed of yourself.
