What an obscene amount of fish, I can't believe they thought they'd get away with it.

People like that need to loose their fishing license for life. It’s a sure bet this ain’t their first time making this kind of mistake.

I’d add to my comment but it involves racial profiling and will put this thread in the bilge of get me banned.

+1, hefty fines (per fish over, preferably) and a few years ban is also acceptable. This: "...but will still face charges and fines that may add up to $3,000 if found guilty," simply isn't enough.

"Two-thirds of the fish were frozen 'in the round,' meaning they were uncut and whole"
You know you've done a horrible deed whenever you're too tired to cut and clean all of your illegal catch.

Lol, please don't kill my thread.


Wow, the image in the article just doesn't give you the scale of it all.

Hate to see stuff like this. Based on the names I'm betting they were Hmong. I know in my native CO we had a lot of trouble with Hmongs and wildlife violations. They don't seem to bother much with regulations and will take game and fish any way they can and in as big of numbers as they can. Probably cultural (and NO that does not excuse it) since they originally hail from the rugged interior of Vietnam and were basically a hunter/gather people in the forests.

Anglers of Far Eastern descent around here do that with sand bass, and the fish wind up in a fish market.

I was thinking the same thing. Better for us to just be quiet.

What they did was illegal, and I'm glad they got busted. This is irrespective to their nationality.

I agree, need to get busted hard. But I guess my point was missed about where a few were trying to take this, it is irrespective of their nationality.
