This arrogant and irresponsible response to trespassing against others
due to retaliation is a classic.  The actions of sneaking into someone
land to fish without permission is detrimental to all fisherman and
sportsmen. This is what has caused the private property owners to
disallow anyone access to their lands. Your actions are the direct
root of the posted sign issues. You are a trespasser, a law breaker,
and a criminal for your actions. Just because you confessed does not
make you anymore trustworthy and you will do it again.
Never seen an 8 pound bass in the cold waters of the U.P..!

Shame on you Muskie, as Darren said you and your kind are the reason
for the attitude and the protectionary measures taken.
