Why cant we get rid of regulations instead of constantly making new ones!!! No one can keep up with the regulations now. You can ask five DNR officers a question about one regulation and get 5 different answers. The previous statement came from a DNR officer!

11:16 is spot on. If you are a commercial fisherman and you get stopped it's up to the DNR officer if you get a ticket... that's because there are so many regulations that they are guaranteed to find something.
