I found this story in today's issue of the Grand Forks Herald. First off; I have no patience for people that break the rules because they ruin the hunting and fishing for everyone. Just think if every hunting shot 10 ducks over their limit or caught 100-200 fish over their limit. Pretty soon there would be no more natural resources for sportmen and women to enjoy.
Second having 355 fish over the limit is selfish and it depletes the fish population in that lake, think how many of these instances haven't been caught or detected. These are the types of stories that really get my dander up, because one I have a hard time believing that people did this Crime with out malice and fore thought. This is nothing more than stupidity or ignorance. These people should be put in jail and have their fishing and hunting privileges revoked forever...
EVERYONE to follow.
Four Twin Cities-area anglers have been charged in Ramsey County after authorities caught them keeping more than 350 white bass over their limit while fishing Devils Lake.
Charged were Khang C. Lee, 41, of Minneapolis; Cha Y. Vang, 52, of Brooklyn Center, Minn.; Changxem Vang, 50, of St. Paul; and Choua Xa Vang, 55, of Lakeville, Minn.
A minor fishing with the crew wasn't charged.
According to Paul Freeman, district game warden supervisor for the North Dakota Game and Fish Department in Devils Lake, a Ramsey County sheriff's deputy responding to a citizen complaint encountered the anglers fishing from shore Aug. 3 near Grahams Island State Park.
The deputy questioned the anglers, who said they had been fishing two days. He then searched seven coolers and counted 553 white bass. North Dakota's white bass limit is 20 daily and 40 in possession, Freeman said, which means the anglers were 353 white bass over their possession limit.
