I met up with one the other day at work, female no less.  Someone had gone off roading and gotten majorly stuck.  She was in full uniform and walked like a quarter mile to the truck.  I stopped at the big sloppy mudhole, she never broke stride and went right into it, nice shiny boots and clean uniform and all. 

My kinda gal. 

I couldn't have remained a gentleman. 😍

Why did she walk out there?

She had already spoken with them, and was checking for presence of a firearm in the vehicle as it had a big light bar on top, and was along way from the road.  I guarantee she would wade through a cesspool to check someone she had any suggestion of wrongdoing.

Sounds like the gal that was here; several years ago the gal that worked this county had another guy drop her off and she waded the creek and walked about a mile herding 7 or 8 people in front of her til she reached the county road where she lined them all up and cited them, then got in the vehicle with the other agent.  She walked over 50 yards twice on one day to check me- morning and late afternoon. She spent a lot of time in Court all the years she worked this area.

Sure sound like her.  She is a nice lady when you aren't in violation, but she doesn't take BS and doesn't appreciate I ate people lying to her.  Lots if people dislike her, but I have never had an issue with her.

Like any profession some are better than others, some are great investigators and some have great people skills, some dont. Don't know if I have told this one or not.  Many years ago at Smithville there was a big ole boy who was an agent, one day he walked down to the shoreline to ask a boater to see their fishing licenses, the fishermen make some smart alek comment along the lines of well why don't you come out and get them.  The agent, a rather tall man simply walked straight out to the boat, grabbed it and pulled them up to the bank.  The rest of the encounter was rather subdued.  I also saw him teach an older Vietnamese lady with a bucket of short crappie to speak English.  She was going on about no speakey, when he said lady I am going take you to jail in 30 seconds!  Her next worda were "those arenot my fish,  someone gave them to me "Turns out she spoke quite fluent english.  Willie was laughing about it so much that he could barely write her a ticket.

The agent in my county, who knows me pretty well, once saw my truck at a bridge on a local creek and walked up a quarter mile through the brush before he saw me (with my back turned), then plunged into the creek in his uniform and shiny shoes and started to wade up to where I was fishing.  That was when I heard him and turned around to see who was coming...and he saw who I was.  "Dang it, if I'd known it was you I wouldn't have gotten my feet wet!"

Well, all I can say is that if ya'll claim that agents like that are the norm I still don't believe it.   

And I'm not really knocking the agents (personally) either, because if you think I'd wade through 1/2 mile of mud just so some jackass could pay a 70.00 fine, or possibly not even show up to court.... Ha!

I think that agents like that are more the rule than the exception.  You might not wade through a buffet of ticks and poison ivy, but then again that isn't your job.  Believe me the agents get a lot of pressure to be viable and out doing their job.  It may take an agent an hour to walk and check 3 fishermen, however that is their job.  I have fished LOZ quite a few times and have yet to see an agent there, they may be hitting places that I am not, I don't know, I also avid it on weekends.  I also usually see at least one dock owner happily filling a basket with every crappie they catch regardless of size.
