I wrote about this a couple of days ago, Chien Van Tran faces $3000 fine and one year in jail plus the confiscation of his boat, motor, trailers plus his fishing privileges for three years. At 39, he losing some valuable time. If he gets the one year in jail, that takes some of the time away from his hobby....of committing misdeamnors on our local lakes.
I never could find out what they did with either the fresh fish or the hundreds they found in his freezer. I certainly hope that they provided a good meal or two for people without access to a good fish fry and were needy.
This takes some guts. But, not the kind that I would want to have anything to do with.
And, I am still angry that someone would recklessly take fish like this. They did catch some huge poachers up north last winter as well. But, I think they finally determined that it was a tribe who netted the hundreds if not thousands of fish and just left them in the woods.
It is sad to see our natural resources squandered like this.
