Poaching. It’s something I cannot stand. We have very liberal limits in Louisiana, especially for trout. Why does someone need to keep more than 25 trout per person? I remember one small boat with two people that reportedly filled up a cooler with 200 trout at the Rock Dam. This was a few years ago. It’s blatantly disrespectful in more ways than one.
So that’s why I keep Operation Game Thief in mind. What is Operation Game Thief? OGT is a program that has been in existence for 28 years. It is a non-profit corporation staffed and funded by volunteer sportsman. The purpose of OGT is to provide a means for me and you to report people that are breaking the law.
To make a report, call toll free at 1-800-442-2511. You can also send a text with LADWF and your message to 847411 or download the app available for iPhones in the iTunes market. (Sorry, Android users. I emailed Lt Roberts of the LDWF to learn more if there is indeed an app for the Android).
