>>I would let the market place determine the fines and punishments.
That's cool. The market place can't impose laws. Only civil authorities
can do that.
>>Just like we rely on the skippers and the boats to *police* the taking
>>of illegal game, I would rely on them to do the same in the buddy system
Really, legally, a skipper of a boat cannot do much more about illegal
game than notify Fish and Game to meet the boat. While I wouldn't do it to
a skipper, if anyone else ever tells me (after I sign up for the boat)
that they are supposed to enforce Fish and Game laws by checking my game,
I will call the police on them with my cell phone and tell the police that
there is someone impersonating a state police officer, FAG, and would they
meet us at the docks to arrest the person.
