haters, the law breakers and the mischief makers will get their just rewards. But, I will be long gone before that day arrives. There has always been sloth and indifference by some to "societal norms" and "the rules" but the degree of self indulgent "I can do whatever I want attitude" seen today is appalling. Most anglers know there is little chance of getting caught when they break a law so whatever small chance of doing right that remains owes its existence to ethics and moral character. For far too many people those two attributes seem to be missing.

And, just to be clear, piers are only one of many such locales suffereing from these attitudes. Talked to Ed Roberts who is now up in Eureka and he commented on the terrible amount of poaching taking place up there. And, it's almost all non-pier since there are so few piers and so few pier anglers in the area.
