As far as I know, every state has laws that protect sportsmen from harassment, while they are legally perusing their chosen activity. It does not matter if it is hunting or fishing, purposely disturbing the can be punished, not only by the
Last week a video of a woman harassing an angler went viral. According to
The fisherman was completely with in his rights to fish the spot. A video of the incident was uploaded to Facebook.
Needless to say, this woman’s behavior did not sit well with the fishing community. He was legally fishing public waters. She had absolutely no right to act that way. So in response, a fishing event was scheduled to pack the public waters around the dock with as many fishermen as possible.
The event was a overwhelming success Just by looking at the pictures a ton of fisherman showed up.
It is great to see sportsmen uniting for a common cause. Public access is important to all of us and sometime people need to be reminded about it.
