So I'm sure everyone rushed off to fish bayou black this weekend in light of that thrilling article that was written earlier this week. What was left out, as told to me by the LA continental land and fur co representative., is the the author of this article had been run out of this pond by them for trespassing. This comes around now, to my fishing party this mornjng. We were fishing a area in the marsh my father in law has for years. Suddenly we (and 3 other guys in the same area) were greeted by the fore-mentioned land owner's representative who proceeed to have a sherrifs deputy write all of the boat owners tickets for trespassing. He asked us if we had read the article 'on the sportsman' ,which I actually had not, stated that after seeing the article that was written by the fella he ran off, he knew there would be a slew of new trespassers today and he wanted to make an example of them for following the authors Poor advice. With all of that being said, I don't blame the author for the ticket the guy I was with received, but it seems like if your going to go through with an article like that when you had yourself been ran off for trespassing (and luckily got a warning only according to the representitive), it seems like you would add that bit of info to the story in the form of a 'fish at your own risk'. I also might add that the area we were fishing was not posted (I know that's not required by law anymore). This was about my second time fishing there; I will be in no rush to return.
