12 People, 3 guides. How do they calculate the fine. Surely this has happened before. Is this going to be a 500 dollar fine or 5k fine. I would think it would be pretty steep.

You can pretty much bet this was one of those limit in the morning, limit in the afternoon deals and they ended up with a lot of fish.


Thanks, Billy

Ducks would be a Federal crime and more valuable per violation. noidea


I think crappie are $25.00 per fish, still adds up.



Try $250

The limit on crappie in Louisiana is 50, but no size limit.

News article said instead of charging them for every violation they just gave every person a class c misdemeanor. So wont be much fine or consequences for such a blatant act. Even said they were caught after an investigation so they knew it was happening or happened more than once.

18 counts each for the guides.
14 counts over the limit
4 counts for undersized fish.
They got off easy

Way too easy. BUT, what is the price for their reputations?

They will be back fishing the next day. People know they can catch fish, so they won't miss a lick. Good chance most people booking with them will not even know about this incident.

This is not the first time a guide has been written a ticket.


Thanks, Billy

They probably have to hire extra staff to keep up with booking now!!! roflmao


If you have people who follow you and watch everything you do, even though they claim they dont like you, it can only mean one thing. They are FANS , but thier jealousy , envy, and pride wont let them admit it.
Keep marching to the beat of your own drum, and let them watch in awe!!!

Yea. They should have got hit worse on the guides. For what it cost to pay those fines they will make that up easily

In the minds of many , negative press is better than no press ! Therefore, these few will profit and return to their ways.

The fine should be enough to get their attention especially the guides. Think the guides should get a very stiff penalty, loose their license for a minimum of a year and give back to the fishery by game wardens confiscating their electronics and making The gps coordinates public information. In addition the guides and their clients should have to build 208 brush piles (one for each illegal fish) and those GPS coordinates also be published to the public for starters
