Greedy...even though they have more Reds and easy angler limits, I still read stuff like this.
Oh, how I could run them dudes through Cappy Dave's Fishing Boot Camp!
Three cited for Redfish violations.
From News Reports (La. Sportsman Magazine)
January 26, 2010
Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries agents cited three Baton Rouge men for allegedly taking over the limit and undersized red drum and angling without the proper licenses in Lafourche Parish on Jan. 12.
Thomas Marrero, 58, Louis Baker, 25, and Ron Carter, 34, were cited after agents found them in possession of 92 red drum while fishing near Highway 1 between Fourchon and Grand Isle.
(when is the last time you caught 92 Redfish here?)
All three subjects were also cited for angling without a basic fishing license and angling without a saltwater fishing license.
Out of the 92 fish, 72 were found to be under the legal size limit of 16 inches. All of the fish were seized and later donated to charity.
The penalty for the take or possession of undersized red drum is a fine up to $350 or jail time up to 60 days or both plus court costs. The take or possession of over the limit of red drum is punishable by a fine up to $350 or jail time up to 60 days or both plus court costs. The penalty for angling without a license includes a $50 fine or jail time up to 15 days or both.
($50 with out a License? Wow, that's cheap)
All three subjects also were issued civil restitution citations for the value of the illegally taken red drum and if found guilty could pay up to $1918.61 jointly.

4 - What Morons!
What is it over there? Reds a piece? (answer: Redfish regs for State of La. - 16 inches -5 per person per day. No upper size limit at all!)
Goes to show ya how moronic and greedy people are at heart.
Here in Fla. it's one!!!!!!!!!!!!!
18-27' ---WITH TAIL PINCHED!!
Of course we get alot of Morons here that keep more and get caught.
But C'mon. Another case of Louisianan's not appreciating what they have.
Come on over to Florida...'yeah I thought so'.
Throw them in jail, and a fine. $1981 jointly?
That's chump change. Pay with TIME.

3 much too easy
I mean heck, I would pay 500 for a good fishing trip like that, really no incentive not to do it again. you know if the risk doesnt outweigh the benefit then the act is likely to be repeated. this penalty is really a joke

They should all serve jail time and be unable to obtain hunting or fishing license for at least 10 years or maybe even a lifetime ban. Make them all serve the max(135 days) time in jail and have them do community service in orange jump suits when the big Grand Isle tournaments are going on
