Mike posted this in the freshwater forum, think it needs to be in the river forum as well....

It should be everywhere. I agree that it should be required viewing to get a punch card.

I always wonder about the photos I see of fish out of the water about to be released. Even if you do not agree with the regulation its not a great idea to take a photo of yourself doing an violation AND post it on the internet.

We try our best to keep these from being posted, but with all the forum posts and reports
some get through.
