I bring all this up because there's been a lot of chatter on the Internet recently about certain people unashamedly fishing reeds, and taking hero shots, etc. I've been asked about a hundred times in the past week how I feel about all of this. It's a no brainer. You shouldn't pound fish on redds, period. And when you're wading a river during the spawn, you don't step on the redds when you spot them.
