It is really too bad that Alabama doesn't provide enough funds to have enough officers to effectively enforce the game and fish laws. I know several of them and they are good folks trying very hard to do a good job with very limited numbers and resources.
I do know that the Alabama Marine Police have been patrolling near the Browns Creek (Hwy69 bridge) area. Next time you might try calling them. Not sure, but I think they can enforce game and fish laws just the same as a game warden. If not, they certainly can check a boat for ANY violations. (grin)
Glad you did something. So many people will simply shake their heads and forget about it. Worse than that, some will join in on the illegal activity, knowing that their chances of getting caught are very low.
Good luck and good fishin'
