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.
+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.
I’d add to my comment but it involves racial profiling and will put this thread in the bilge of get me banned.
Lol, please don't kill my thread.
Wow, the image in the article just doesn't give you the scale of it all.
