OUCH!! $4,000 in Fines and Two-Year Suspension for Fishing Violations


Recommended Posts

Hmmm ... Well don't get me wrong ... I am all about making sure people don't go over their limits and enforcing that is the only way to make sure it happens ...And that daily limit doesn't mean every day ... and possession limit is exactly that ... but I assume he isn't married and doesn't have kids ... because there is no law against catching a limit one day and gifting it to someone else (even someone in your household and then going out the next day to do it again.)

wow! I wonder if they just asked him if he had any fish at home or if they actually went and searched. I can't imagine a search of your home would be legal??

The whole scenario makes me think he is known to the CO's with the fish in the freezer coming into play, repeat offender perhaps and got the book thrown at him, otherwise it does seem a bit overboard.

If he's a repeat offender then the punishment seems fit. If it's a misunderstanding of the possession law then it's too harsh. Someone having 4 fish in their freezer doesn't seem like much of a threat to fishing for future generations.
