Snag ShirtsFISHERMAN\'S Thursday 12-8CANCELED

I'm in shock here everyone. I had two boxes of shirts stolen from my home last night. I realized it this morning and am going to file a police report now. I'm praying the scum that took them just left them stashed somewhere near my home.
I can't imagine they have any value to them. Maybe with a prayer I'll find them or the police have. Tonight is officially canceled. Marie at Tillamook Bait Company has about 80, plus I've sold about 40, so it's not a total loss. I'll contact those of you who helped fund this and get you your funds back right away, so please don't worry.
Thanks again everyone, I'll keep you posted.

This just in... It's working!

Feel free to post - thanks Jennie for your help)

Jennie,
I was pleased to pick up our first batch of dispositions from the district court in Vancouver and find that our court system is taking snagging as a serious matter. We have a bail schedule which suggests that $500.00 is the recommended bail for attempting to snag salmon. Traditionally, that amount is usually reduced at the arraignment. This first-degree gross misdemeanor charge actually carries a maximum sentence of $5000.00 and one year in jail. The court has chosen in these initial cases to fine the defendants the maximum of $5000.00 and suspended $4500.00 of that and the one year in jail "on the condition" that there be no further violations for a period of one year. This sends a strong message.

We are very pleased with these findings and the posture the court has taken on disposing of these cases. I think our court is sensitive to the valuable resources we have in our area and are willing to send that message. The recent press coverage provided by Grant Mcomie and KATU has assisted in our cause. I told you I would pass on the results of our cases and I am happy to report this current news. Even though we are short two officers, we have issued nearly 250 citations in the last 45 days for snagging related activity. This effort toward snagging is unmatched in previous years. Hunting seasons are upon us, but we have still managed to get in some patrols while passing. Tonight we wrote 4 citations at Cedar Creek in the dark on the way home. The problem is still there and we'll stay on it. Thanks for all your support.

I think Sgt. Webb deserves a anti snagging shirt for free. Don't you? :smile:

update:

Jennie,
Thanks......but I kicked myself after hitting SEND and not specifically mentioning my Team, Team, Team....I've got 3 WONDERFUL officers that have spent long nights away from home and their families to assist in this cause. They are great officers and take risks in dealing with these characters especially at night. These are the guys deserving of the credit for this emphasis. I just get to help with their bookwork is all. They are the ones to thank. I'm looking forward to filling our two remaining empty positions in Jan.(God willing and our budget holds) and that will be great.

Hang in there
Rick

Great Looking shirts. Stopped by and picked up mine at Fisherman's Marine in Oregon City last night. Great thing to promote non snagging. Worth the trip from Forest Grove.

Are the shirts only going to be there from 5:30 on tomorrow or will they be there all day, I hate crossing the bridge back home to Vancouver during rush hour.

Also I think those (3) fine officers who spent many nights away from the family to help in this cause deserve a free shirt also,,, how about it.

I put in 100.00 to cover making the shirts, and many others pitched in, also.
We need to SELL some shirts before we can GIVE any more shirts!
We are making NO profit. Just covering costs. Will you please help us do just that? We've got shirts, shirts shirts, and we need to get them distributed!

Come on, guys! Everyone was interested at first, but yet the turnout was not hot the other night.

Let's make Thursday make up for that. Please, please, show up and support the Anti Snagging campaign. Show the world you care!

I think I may show up, too, and I will be wearing mine! :smile:

Wait a minute! They were STOLEN?
HUH?

Did you ever post your address, for orders?
This is highly suspicious.
I wonder if someone really wants to snag so badly that they stole them? Mad at us for starting this???
