I was fishing today at a public lake. I hat about 15 bluegill in a bucket next to the shore. About that time I noticed a DNR officer walking down the path tward me. I also realized that I didnt have a valid licence because I always fish farm ponds. I tossed my pole up in the weeds. Just then the DNR officer walked around the bend to see me standing over a bucket of fish, but no pole. He asked me for my license and I told him that I was not fishing. He looked at me like I was stupid and asked what those were in the bucket. I told him they were my pet fish and that I bring them down here to the lake once a week for a swim. He said "WHAT??" I said yep, I just turn them out in the open water and after about five minutes they jump back in my bucket. He said he would have to see that to believe it. I said ok...and kicked the bucket over and they all swam off. After about fifteen minutes the warden looked at me :16suspect and said in a very curious voice "wheres the fish???" and I replied "What fish???"
