Thread: Time to change this board name!!!!

  1. Default Time to change this board name!!!!

    This just in from Ian Cox:

    This is an urgent alert to all trout bass and carp fisherman in South Africa so please pass it on. The minister of enviromental affairs listed trout carp and bass as invasive species on friday thereby making anyone who fishes, keeps, transports or in any way deals in trout, bass or carp, whether processed dead or alive criminals liable to a fine of up to ten million ramds and a period of imprisonment of up to ten years. So as matters stand today the freshwater fishing community in South Africa are criminals, so is anyone who runs a hatchery, owns a dam stocked with bass trout or carp, or sells or gives them away. Ditto if you cook the stuff. It may sound to crazy to be true but this is the result of pushing through legislation without considering its effect.



    I think it's pretty clear this board heading needs to be changed to something like "Criminal Hangout" or something.

    Don't they have bigger fish to fry?
    Most invasive species I've seen are plastic bags, broken bottles, and clumps of E coli

    Just another law that they don't have the capacity to enforce

    Agreed, however, it still means that you are breaking the law when you engage in trouting activity.

    Gasp!! This is incredible.

    I know this is new, but does anyone know how this will affect Vaal fishing? If you are fishing for yellows but hook a carp (or much more unlikely, a bass), do you kill and discard, release, cut your line???

    You do nothing, just wait for the cops to arrive - that is how you should treat any crime scene I hear.
