Ashley Bonser writes: Hit Flaming Gorge yesterday and did real well but caught this small 8-10lb laker that was obviously snagged.  The tear was so bad I could put my hand in and pull it's gut's out.  I wish they would shut this November snagathon down. Please post this and make a point of letting these guy's know that snagging fish is against the law and not sporting at all. I hooked 11 fish yesterday and landed 9 with the biggest only about 27 lb's but a good day and they were all in the lip's.
