I fished White Rock by the dog park, and I'm thinking there are too many fish eating birds. This pics is just from couple trees, after I scared some off.

Get your permits for private land owners and shoot on site. They are eating shad, and small game fish by the hundreds.

I've seen some so fat they can barely take off

Fish eating birds taste horrible so there is no table value, but I still want them to die



Don't worry about the mule, just load the cart

Best use for a cormorant is an oil-spill-soaker-upper.

I have friend that has caught them 20 ft. deep on trotlines. They take way too many game fish, all cormorants should die!

Check out millers pond if you want to see the massacre. Its like 2 acres and last I went there were about 80 cormorants gorging on the trout. They were getting busted up so bad, there was nowhere for them to hide. They were hard to catch too, the birds had them scared.

our lake in East Tx gets a permit every year and its always fun take 500 or so out evey year. It seems that the more you kill the more that will be back next year. I know our bait fish and crappie have been hurt over the last 5 years.

Yep find those birds in trees over water or standing timber and there is a ton of cats below them eating their... well you know what. It is so bad over by the dog park there on White Rock that I won't even walk that section of the lake.
