I just talked with my retired game warden friend and here's the low down.
Poaching is when a person hunts or fishes out of season (which bass fishing has no season) or when he trespasses on someone else's property (which he was not). As long as you take the fish by legal means (which is by hook and line) you are not breaking the law. He only broke the law that says you must have a valid fishing liscense in possession and that is the only law he broke.
He said you can call any warden and they will tell you the same thing. Just my 2 cents worth.
