Youtube Fishermen Tresspassing

Recommended Posts

  I watch a lot of the youtube fishing shows and I have noticed a lot of them seem to be trespassing on property that they don't have permission to fish. I personally do not think this is good to be published for younger kids to be watching and getting ideas and it gives fishermen a bad name. Any thoughts on this?  I know most of the ones I see are younger guys doing this.

You said “seem” to be trespassing. Are you assuming they are, or do you know they are?

I've seen Lake Fork Guy read a no fishing and no trespassing sign and ignore it.

 

Other than that on a rare occasion Kickin Their Bass TV will go to a new place, look for signs, and if he doesn't see any he will fish. But he explains that he didn't see one and if anyone asks him to leave he will. And I've seen him get asked a few times and he's super polite about it. That's the way I do it too.

Here's how I view it. When I was young. It wasn't worth fishing unless you weren't suppose to be there. In the case if YouTube. I would bet most of the videos where they say that they are trespassing and show the signs. They most likely have permission they just use this to get views.

I dont like that they do this because it could give younger kids the impression that its right to do but as Hower said it adds shock value and more clicks. Definitely isnt the most ethical

Yes I assume they are but when people that own property come out ask them what they are doing there or have called the cops , I assume they either don't have permission are it is not legit permission. I know every state is different and in mine you have to have written permission to fish or hunt on private property.

I have watched the same vids. It was disappointing to see LFG doing that.

 

Honestly anyone doing this has a low IQ They are trespassing and filming the evidence to prove that they are doing so. Open and shut case, pay the fine or do the time.

The guy's got a lump pressing against his brain and is probably going to be dead soon, cut him some slack.

I have mixed feelings about it. In Florida, it was a very free state years ago, in that you could pretty much fish ( or even hunt ) many places as long as it wasnt posted. That all changed in the 80s with all the new comers and greedy people doing lawsuits over almost anything. 

I have dealt with it for years with pond fishing. I have learned how to read ponds and rarely get approached and asked to leave. Part of me is determined to fish old spots I used to fish when it was open, but I have had to let go some of these or have conflict. If asked to leave I do, for there are many other ponds. I have never been approached once by law enforcement while doing this.

As far as you tubers, a lot of them thrive on click-bait and supposed or contrived conflicts. I dont subscribe or watch them after I percieve thats what they are doing.

His tumor isn't fatal.

I have a pond. I have spent the last 10 years building an eco system in it to support a healthy population of fish. I have some unusually large bass (for this area) in it. There are "No Trespassing" and "No Fishing" signs all around it. This pond represents a considerable investment both in time and money. I would be happy to allow children to catch panfish (there are some large ones originally placed as forage) and take them home. I would be very unhappy with anyone catching and removing any of the bass I have fed and cared for over the years. I am 72 years old and don't get to go to the lake as much as I would like and have built this pond for my own recreation. People please have some respect. Ask for permission to fish ponds on private property. There is also the issue of liability to consider.

in my neck of the woods there's no use for trespassers .... no trespassing means just that .... no trespassing ... no fishing .... private property .... respect it  ... 

 

if not ... likely to be greeted with a gang of unfriendly dogs and an owner with a shotgun in his hands ....

 

good fishing ....

I understand the sentiment, but I am very happy to live in a state where you need more of an excuse than trespassing on private property (different than trespass of residence or home invasion) to attack or shoot someone.

I've always told my wife that when we get old (God willing) we will build a pond like this and fence it off.
