    Please Don’t Cut The Cypress Trees

    I posted this on the TWRA Region II page, also. But, someone is cutting the Cypress trees on Priest for their personal fish attractors. The work and expense of placing these on trees is bad enough, but these trees can live for many decades and provide excellent fish habitat for ALL OF US. But someone doesn’t see it that way and recently cut a bunch of trees around Fall Creek on Priest. This is the sportsman’s dollars that pay for this work and I hope that anyone who knows about this–as in who did it–will consider contacting the TWRA so that they can in turn contact the culprit or culprits. This was a lazy and a selfish act of vandalism. Hate to see it.

    This annoys me it’s so disgusting. Also I heard below Cheatham a couple boaters got caught for 10 white bass over their limit. That’s another thing that annoys me. They know the limit. Hey and generally I’m a happy person. LOL

    Someone gets busted below Cheatham every year for white bass or stripers.
    The over number is always appalling. I talked to the TWRA guys who work the Cumberland from downtown to the OH dam one day. They said that the half mike below the OH dam is one of the top poaching spots in the state. They routinely catch people with huge bags of paddlefish during their spawn. There is apparently a huge market for paddlefish roe. I’m not a huge fan, but Its not terribly different than sturgeon roe/caviar
