This is what we don't need. Guys like this result in areas getting closed to fishing. How much bait does a guy need?

Why don’t they shake out their net over the water? That’s on the end of the dock. In my mind it qualifies as a littering fine.The best dock across the cove was closed because of behavior like this.

Typical Flyfisherman crying :)

I agree, why doesn't someone at least send it over for the crabs...

I have no issues with killing a few lbs of extra bait....the ecosystem will absorb it...but, to leave on the dock, the smell, it's slippery, and a health hazzard.

I have a problem with it. I see these a....holes every day taking more bait than they can use in month and cram it on a five gallon bucket. Fish for an hour and then dump it out. Not good.

It's called waste for the idiots that do it.

I have never in now 50 plus years not used everthing that I have killed from the wild on purpose.

Still not sure what your pic is showing? Maybe a bunch of net wreckers shook out of a net that are gonna be dead no matter what. My driveway has looked like that before.

Wife makes me pick up every one of them and then I make chum to kill more of them out of a mess like that you show on that dock. Yes, pilchards are cannibals.:D

 

There is no excuse for the pic you posted. It is wanting and willing waste and I believe there is a law against it. I would have raked them up and thrown them in the back of the guys truck if I had the chance. The blow flies and buzzards would likely lead to a easy conviction.

Turn mine loose at the end of the day.

I agree. Why would you leave them on the dock? The person who did this should be chased with a big stick!

Remember stuff like this when the bait is hard to find. We should all work to preserve our resources, all the time. Clouds of bait today, wasted, won't be here tomorrow.  OK, I am done hugging the seaweed.

Are you sure these weren't from a fish kill? Looks like the kind of thing I saw up in Pensacola in the early '70's when the water quality went to hell.

Between hurricanes, record rains, and unprecedented dumping of Lake Okeechobee into the Gulf and Atlantic coasts, half the docks in Florida have been under water in the past three weeks. But I wouldn't blame them if they did commit suicide!
