Hit one of my favorite catch and release lakes today to find a shore full of fishermen, which is unusual in itself. I immediately noticed they all had poles wedged into the rocks. I still didn't jump to conclusions, thinking maybe they're tribal members. I caught a few(releasing them like the law requires) when I noticed the bait guys had one on. There was immediately alot of excited yelling in Russian, and the fish was thrown on a stringer. F'ing poachers!! I went back to my rig, grabbed my cell and discreetly took a pic of their license plates. Blurry. I couldn't do it again without tipping my hand. I walked past them and fished down the beach, catching a few more and watching them put at least two more on their stringer. As I walked back I slipped my camera out of my pack, and using my body as a shield I got a better pic of their plates. Only problem, the stupid camera beeped when I turned it on, and made a loud fake shutter noise when I took the picture. When I reach my truck I notice all the Russians staring at me. Shit! Busted! As soon as I reached cell service I called it in. I left my info and got a call back an hour and a half later, the game warden telling me no one was there. With that response time, what do you expect? I know they hauled ass because my loud as camera(really is there any reason for all the beeps and blips). Good thing I got the pics, we'll see if they follow up. I have a feeling this is going to be a recurring event now that those POS's have it on their radar. Every time you hear Russian, call it in. You'll catch a poacher9/10times.
