I have been checked 2 of the last 3 trips to my local lake, both officers were nice and courteous. I have a buddy that is a guide and they check him pretty regular. and his license covers all people fishing in the boat when he is on a charter.
There is a place down here where they are pretty strict on checking , but that is due to people catching a limit of crappie, going home and dropping them off, and going back for another limit.
Although the tourist industry is important here, the rules still need to be adhered to, tourist or local, we all need to just obey the regs. And some of the guides down here think they own the water which is a sore spot with me. Not all, but some.
