Back to the original point of this thread, I find it interesting these guys were caught. In over 25 years of fishing on Taneycomo I have never been checked by an agent. A few years ago, and now again recently I have been approached by MDC employees, not agents, surveying fishermen. But they haven't even asked to see a permit, and only went by what I told them I had in the livewell. They did however want to measure one nice fish while I was fishing a tournament....and almost dropped it in the lake!
We used to get checked by a Creel Census MDC guy regularly on TR but he became ill and passed away. That was years ago and they never replaced him.

Kinda' welcomed his "checks" cause he was always ready to pass on some info from others about what they were biting on
