Passing laws and setting rules from an office is a pretty easy thing to do. Enforcement, on the other hand, is expensive and requires manpower. Enforcement is not a pleasant thing. In some cases, enforcement can be downright dangerous. Given the current state of finances in the State and in the Country, I find it hard to believe that there will be any expenditures of size to support these rules. I hope that I am incorrect, but the numbers are just not there for me. Our courts are overburdened now, with lawbreakers of a more violent and troublesome nature. I can not see the addition of a few miscreant fishers getting much attention. Perhaps the bold print in the WDFW statement is the giveaway. If they make the threat, then decent and law abiding fishers will not violate it, and we can all feel good about that and go home to a warm fire and cold beer. The few fish that fall prey to the unscrupulous will not bother the political folks and their appointees very much, if at all.
