You're talking to a salmon veteran here
I would have hauled you in.
I've been stopped a gabillion times on the river, and never once has an officer looked in my tackle box.. In fact, I believe that would be considered an illegal search. You sure theres nothing more to this story?
a salmon veteran?? you dont even live on the right side of the state. i grew up 100 Ft the pentwater river, and there are huge salmon runs there. my dad has a 25 ft bayliner trophy we go out on 1-2 times a week for salmon. i am not saying i have never gill netted, snagged, shot, dynamited, or speared salmon, but this time i was innocent. besides, i only had my light spinning tackle with me, i use an old tuna stick with a 2 speed penn for snagging. P.S. my tacklebox was sitting there open when he walked up.
