    Knowing Dustin, I know his original question was sincere; just not well thought out. He had watched Jim Teeny's video and was legitimately curious about the tactic. I think given the response on the thread, he got his answer. I don't think the "ethics" of doing such a thing are quite as obvious as it might seem to everyone; especially since running sleds over them, or even catching+releasing them is considered acceptable.

    Come on now I was only joking. Really, I would not run my sled over any fish in the river. Never. Matter of fact I only use the sled when I know there are no fish what so ever in the river. This part is getting easier all the time with the runs on the decline. Soon, I won't need to worry about it at all. Can't wait.

    while this is true, i knew it was a volatile subject, i guess i could have made the question slightly less incendiary. i guess i dont fully understand why it is ILLEGAL to throw rocks into a hole, but i do understand it from an ethical and sportsman ship point of view.
